I’ve never pinned on a race number, and I don’t necessarily feel the need to. Riding for me is all about the adventure, the challenge and the friendship. From solo sufferfests to weekend group rides, commuting by bike to the century sportive, these are the moments that bring pain, joy and fulfillment while exploring the open road. As for the epic hills in the Flemish Ardennes through the cobbles of Haaghoek, these are the mythical roads of the Belgian Classics… and now, the ride of a lifetime! No experience for this cyclist will match riding in the fabled Ronde von Vlaanderen Cyclo, and I can think of no greater honor than to cycle it as a BMC ambassador on the “cobble-proof” granfondo GF01. To old roads and new friends, let’s share in the effort and adventure! @dmalwitz // instagram.com/djmcbad // #RVVcyclo #rideBMC
