Stoepid Week, One Year On

Exactly one year ago I was on a flight to Belgium about to start the most ridiculous bike riding experience of my life. Stoepid Week. Ill conceived, poorly organized, and really really hard. With a year’s perspective I can say it was fun. Sort of. It was worth doing, anyway. For some reason I will ride a lot of the same roads over the next three weeks that I rode in that one memorable week last year. But in no way will it be the same. Which is a good thing.
