100% this…

I read this article and almost all of it hit home with me.

Social media, the wider media, celebrities you are all enjoying wading in on cyclists to get cheap clicks, hits and laughs.

Look at their silly lycra, look at their pointy crash helmets… etc. etc.

But you are contributing towards hatred, aggression and hostility.

It needs to stop before people are killed.

People are stealing signs week after week from my clubs local midweek 10 mile time trial. It’s held on mainly country roads and has been on the same course for 40 years.

But someone in a car is now taking away warning and safety signs which could lead to cars being on the course and travelling at a higher speed than if they were aware a race was on.

This lunchtime, I chose to go for a jog instead of get my bike out and ride.

Beerwulf gets me Belgian beer on tap

Having had a garden bar built during lockdown, the SUB keg beer pump from Beerwulf was a brilliant 2020 Fathers Day gift from my children.

The beer was cold and frothy just how I like it and despite some limited options in terms of replacement kegs to go in the machine, there is now a lot more of a Belgian feel to the SUB keg.

That’s not to say I haven’t enjoyed it to date, but Pelforth is a French and not Belgian beer although you could argue the quality of the Brune is comparabale to some brews from north of the border.

Delirium Tremens - SUB Keg

The initial reviews of the machine were that the compressor was noisy and unreliable, but (fingers crossed) to date we have had no issues.

As well as Delirium (picture above) we can now get Affligem in Blonde, Brune and now Dubbel orTripel. La Chouffe is not a favourite of mine but that is also now available to order.

Order Kegs

Order a SUB machine

Of course the pursits will rightly point out that this is not the same as getting an authentic bottle from a bar, but we can’t go to Belgium right now so this is a great way of keeping the taste of some favourites whilst maybe trying something new if its on the list and you haven’t tried it before.

It is at 6pm (1800hrs) Uk time and I would like you to ride.

2021 in Beers of Belgium CC

Welcome to 2021 and Beers of Belgium.

I would love to say we have big plans for the page this year but I am not sure the Covid pandemic will allow that.

more in garage cycling…

However, despite all of the challenges we face right now I am determined to enjoy the cycling season and sup some beers doing it.

I hope that you will be along for the ride !
