Is Your Typical Ride Not Nearly Hard Enough?

Get up at 4 AM. Ride 270 kms in the rain and cold, across roads that are often cobbled and/or muddy. Climb several hills that are barely passable. Consume lots of coffee and waffles. And mull over the fact that even at a brisk pace you’re riding 7-8 mph slower, on average, than the pros will go tomorrow.

It’s the Ronde van Vlaanderen. Did I mention the waffles?
