recommendations on where to stay - I will be driving there with my bike looking to stay over the Friday night.
looking at most booking websites it looks pretty booked up in the area surrounding Oudenaarde.
Thanks for those suggestions. If staying in Ghent, Kortrijk, has anyone taken the trains to Oudenaarde? I’ll prob go by car but good to know if the train is a viable option as roads to Oudenaarde is bound to be packed that day.
Anyone taken their best bike for this event and regretted it? I'm getting mixed messages from mates...
I'd think twice about taking carbon rims as I've bottomed mine out a couple of times over the cobbles, but other than that go for it.
Enjoy the walks up the Koppenberg and the Paterberg!
1 week to go! Is everyone looking forward to Flanders?
Interesting speaking to a number of Belgians riding the E3 Sportive last weekend, who said generally Belgians are getting a bit peed off with the increasing costs of sportives (€14 for E3, not sure about Ronde) and that 2018 will be the first year that more than 50% of the Ronde sportive entrants are not from Belgium.
E3 was great BTW
