    The Tour of Flanders of our childhood days is back! The 2th RetroTour of Flanders is a bicycle trip of 35 km (or 65 km for the diehards): the bicycle racers will be wearing the outfit of the heroic bikers’ past and all of them will ride an authentic race bike of this bygone era. Examples? Goggles, woollen race shirts of legendary sponsors, genuine rider’s caps, the good old sausage-like helmets... Want more? Bikes with strapped foot hooks, gears on the frame and flask attached to the handle bars. And yes, also the environment will be historic: oldtimer-cars, old motorbikes...

    Something like this would only happen in Belgium. You dont get anything like this here in the UK. It looks really good.
