ronde van vlaahanshin

Seems like Rapha Japan must have been reading this very blog (ahem) as they organised a Ronde hommage ride on April 5 in Hanshin, Japan.

Nice race numbers, proper Rapha cue sheet and the fact that they actually rode on the 5th distinguished it as a slightly superior product to the East Lancs version. However, they clearly didn't do their homework as well as this writer, as they don't seem to have picked up on the fact that those are not cobbles. At least not as we know them here in the grimupnorth.............

Steep though.

Lovin that flickr set, real good vibe comes across.

Not up to the standard of your cobble bergs I reckon.

Not that I'm northern and biased though is it :)

Portland needs to be represented here too! We did a 600 person strong ride here that weekend.
