But most importantly, how did the mysterious Julian fare?

Floated round, even stopping on the ride back to the campsite to knock off the Koppenberg (would obviously have joined him - ha! - but for only having a single pedal).

I would be wary of reading too much into an individual event and suspect we may be years away from a sufficiently large sample size to be able to draw statistically valid conclusions.

So, if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with.

When's the next adventure? :D

RetroRonde next weekend (or as I rode the vanilla event on a 91 bike, perhaps MoreRetroRonde?) - kermesse on the Saturday evening in Oudenaarde followed by the main ride on Sunday.
