A flying start: 125 km. We gathered around the church with family, friends and the local newspapers for our depart towards Shanghai. We received a last challenge of the Mayors of our hometowns and off we were. Together with 3 sportive veterans we set pedal for Bilzen, where we found a nice forrest to set up camp. We enjoyed a lovely swim in the evening sun and celebrated our first victory. *clap clap*. After a satisfying feast of schnitzel-Protein-spaghetti-o, we climbed into our hammocks and went to sleep after 'a glass' of wine. Tomorrow we are leaving Belgium.
