Each day here is great starting with a couple of hours on the bike in the morning and touring this wonderful country after that. The days are long with the sun up early and light until 8:30 PM so lots of time to see this beautiful place. We are staying in an Orchard area called Borgloon and all the trees are in bloom which makes the rolling hills green and white (blossoms). Every where we drive, usually on small country roads, we see castles, beautiful churches or cathedrals, and quaint towns with bakeries, butchers, chocolate shopes, etc. Each morning I start my ride with a fresh croissant so despite any calories burned while out I am still am packing on the pounds. Watching Connor and the US Team has been great and I should post a video today from the prior two races.
