For me this is the true cycling season as a fan. I am so excited. And soon I will be there myself to experience Belgium. I can't wait for April - bike races, bike riders, cobbles, Belgian beer, waffles, chocolates, and lots and lots of fans! I am now going to change some wheels around and go out for a bike ride to celebrate Spring.
