We Ride Flanders

Last Saturday I rode part of the "We Ride Flanders" sportive course in Belgium and ended up in this video taken at the finish line. I have no idea what the two guys were saying. While on the course I got many comments with most riders saying, "Courage, Chapeau, Success, and etc".

http://chronorace.blob.core.windows....4481-44526.mp4

I signed up for the 74km route but only did 32km which was a pretty good ride from town to Koppenberg and back. I would have loved to do the whole route but really wasn't in shape to try it as I've been recovering from a knee injury.

I heard there was a penny farthing rider but didn't see him.

Anyone else do this ride before?

I went last year but did it with my bike. Might have to give it a try with my unicycle, but I only have a 27,5er.

I would be happy to help translating but the video link only contains a video track but no soundtrack

Thanks for the offer to translate but the video didn't come with audio. He might have been one of the guys who asked after the race if I did the whole 74km ride. I only did 32km but people were impressed with that distance.

I'd love to see someone do the full 74km course on a unicycle.

Welcome to the forum BieRider.

These days I usually ride 13km, 5 days a week.

Last year I trained to ride a marathon by gradually increasing up to 100km a week every other week for several weeks. Two weeks ago I did a 40km ride without any extra training. It seems as if once you gain the ability to ride longer distances you'll retain that skill as long as you ride regularly. BTW, I started three years ago and have only taken a couple of two week breaks from riding because of injury. I don't foresee riding more than 42km unless I get motivated to do a special event.

Hope you keep at it!
