Get a taste of the islands!

My wife, Lindsay, and I stumbled upon this nice little restaurant that serves 'island' food near Place Flagey. We are going this Friday night at 7pm. If you would like to come join us, please let me know before Wednesday night (the 30th). This will be a casual dinner, some good food, some wine and a good time. Bring your SOs.

Small producers of wine fair in Lille

Mountain Bike Tour

Hi Guys,

We are planning another Moountain Bike Tour for this Thursday - I know - the day that the weather will probably break - but this day worked best for people. This time a bit more of a tour that the last warm-up around the Forest - so the plan will be to drive somewhere outside of Brussels (not too far - less than one hour max) and do an interesting circuit - but not too hard - hopefully with time for a latish lunch afterwards.

On Wednesday (4 Sep) Ex STUDS President Thierry has commenced his bike trip from Ostende, Belgium to Bordeuax, France.

Mountain Biking Warm-up - Foret de Soignes Track

Anyone interested in a very moderate mountain bike tour - (also accessible on an ordinary bike - with a couple of diversions) ? One of the great pleasures of living in Brussels is the easy accessibility of the Foret de Soignes (Zonienwoud). In the forest there is one marked moutain bike trail of around 20km. This is really a great introduction to mountain biking for newcomers and a great way to become more familiar with the woods.
