The Adventures of Bavikhove

Today, Ian and I rode to the town of Bavikhove. It was the typical small Belgian countryside town. Ian hit up the the local bakery and got his favorite Belgian pastry, a chocolate/hazelnut filled croissant. This ride is our last easy, rest day while at camp. We definately made the best of it though. While riding through the countryside, we saw brussel sprouts growing in some of the farmer's fields and couldn't resist taking a photo shoot in front of a windmill. Steve is currently out of the game right now, for he has a gnarly stomach bug and hasn't been able to eat or drink, his stomach will not take anything it is given. He's been resting all day in bed. While staying here, we have all been hit with some illness to different degrees, but he has got it the worst out of any of us. Here are some photos of the ride...

Guys, you might want to gargle some Listerine if you can get it. That will help you avoid "The Doom".
