Paris-Bruxelles this weekend (15 & 16 oct.)
Posted October 10th, 2011 - 3:26 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
I'm planning to ride to Bruxelles this weekend.

It's a 320km ride, divided in two days (170+150km more or less).

I'll leave saturday in the morning (8am). And I'll sleep at somebody's couch on saturday in Picardie, and on sunday in Brussels (but if anyone has to work monday morning, it's possible to return on sunday evening to Paris).

The route is this one (but in the other sense):

The weather forecast for this weekend is pretty good! Sunny all the weekend, and not too cold during the day...

Anyone interested in joining?

I know it won't be easy, but I'm motivated to do it =)

Why do I always have guests on sunny weekends, and rainy days remaining for such tours ?

Enjoy the trip.

You know I have the same kind of idea for the extended weekend that ends november 1st. But to another european capital, Luxembourg. I'll write more once decided. And sure it will be rainy and cold !

Sylvain, that's one of the reasons why I wrote this in my profile: "Please don't send me a request more than 1 week in advance." =P

And I don't like to take chances, that's why I only decided to go on this weekend AFTER the weather forecast was made available and I could see that it was good ;)

Anyway, c'est dommage que tu puisses pas venir...

I just saw the post on your blog, and it seems to have been really cool =)

As for me, I don't like rain very much while riding, because I still don't have waterproof shoes, and they get soaked easily.

And when I'm wearing glasses instead of my contact lens, rain becomes REALLY annoying, for I can't seem anything.

Oh, and my bike doesn't have fenders either...

Next weekend I can't, Julien... my mother comes from Brazil =P

and I had already confirmed with my hosts (one in Picardie and the other in Brussels. I found both at Warmshowers.org).

anyway, there's really no way you can do it in this weekend?
