Tradition has it that on the 14th Day of Worship, the hardest of the land gather to match their skill and strength against each other on the inclines of Flandrian earth, stone and tarmac.
Exactly three weekends later this hallowed event will be honored with two invitational rides. Some will take on the original Ronde PDX parcours at 10:00am on Saturday. Yet a strong, enduring few will test themselves again on La Doyenne of the East 10:00 on Sunday.
Follow the routes any time you choose. The lions are waiting to devour you.
It's just a ride:
No Prize but Honor
No Fee but Sweat
No Support but Lycra
No Sponsor but Yourself
No Rules but the Lawful kind
No Sanction but from the Madonna del Ghisallo
