Wondering if anyone here has attended, or plans to attend, the Tour of Flanders sportive and can provide some inputs on that.
I've got a small window for a cycling holiday any time in March and this seems to fit the timing. My fitness may not be up to mark after a winter away from cycling, but that I can work on.
What I need to know is:
a) how hard is it? (so I can prepare accordingly)
b) how are logistics for getting from end to anywhere? (I plan to stay in Brugge so would need to get there end of day)
c) anyone else going? (Up for any company, even if you leave me in your dust at the first corner)
d) what's the best place to watch the real Tour next day? (other than a pub with a TV)
Also, if there's another, better spring classic sportive, please do suggest.
