Foreign Correspondent

Despatches from our travelling Xtracycle Man on the continent
BELGIUM YAY!!! Had some real cool beers here in Belgium. Orval, a HEAVILY hopped Trappist beer at 6.8% served 'warm' at 10-14%. Also had a Trappist honey beer but cannot remember the name. I am starting to take notes and photos. Catch you guy's soon.
PeteB, you lucky lucky bastard.


  • "you lucky lucky bastard."

    I believe they were almost exactly the same words I used. I may or may not have substituted something in place of "bastard" though.

    I do hope trappist beer travels well on planes, and that customs doesn't give you too much trouble, PeteB.

  • Belgian Beers very good ;-) Shimano Belgium very poor:-(
    Was stuck in Namur for ' days waiting to see if anyone had a complete hub to replace the borked piece of Cr@p that was on my bike.
    Am underway again and have done 200+km on only the one front brake and a second hand rear wheel.
    Beer is still good though
