Enjoy!:D

Thanks so much for sharing that. That's what I was involved in in Holland in the early 60s. First on an old Raleigh, then I thought I died and went to heaven when I got a French Al touring bike (I think it was a LeJeune, or a Mercier) from my Grandpa. Usually you rode what you brung and then rode it back home again too. And Paris- Roubaix looks tough?
Brought back some great memories.
Hoek.

That looks like an idea ripe for revival...city centre cyclo X! :)

Definitely! Urban X. Great to see such passionate crowds.

Any possibility of providing a non-Facebook link for the original post?
