It's all about the beer and finding your way to it

Beer & Bicycling in Belgium

Belgium has a reputation as being mad about cycling (as I write this the La Flèche Wallonne road race is on live TV). A large proportion of the people also love beer. The abundance of rural beer cafes, often along bicycle routes, brings the two together regularly. In the warmer weather you can almost always find someone in spandex with a beer in front of them at a countryside cafe. On the weekends you can often find large gangs of riders taking over sections of cafe terraces. And why not? Nothing on earth is more refreshing than a crisp Belgian blonde ale after a leisurely pedal through the countryside.
