It occured to me whilst preparing for the Tour of Flanders sportive last year that East Lancashire where I live is really quite like Flanders - no, really, bear with me. Cobbles, short sharp hills, pissy weather conditions, rough roads.......even if the beer is not as good.
Coming soon then, a series of narrative posts documenting the design of the first ever Ronde van Oost Lancashire - my homage to the Ronde van Vlaanderen with around 18 or so classic climbs, cobbles, narrow lanes, 50 odd miles in length and with over 6000ft of climbing!
Now this sounds like a good route!
A route I have to try I think!
