    If the place is right, it is right. So don't worry about it being the first one you viewed. You've bought before and you know what you want now so wouldn't be too worried about that. Maybe look a bit in the area there, is it really only because of the transport links it's so much cheaper? What about other shops/amenities?
    Important one that you haven't brought up is the length of the leasehold, bearing in mind that you need to own a flat for at least 3 years before you can extended it. If the flat has got less than say 85-90 years on it, best to do some research on costs involved there.

    It's Bavik's reply to Omer, so basically Omer with a lower alcohol percentage (8 vs 6.6) with the added gimmick ofc.

    Standard Belgian blonde beer - Tasty :)

    Yea, Blauw / Export is the same brewery, only comes in 33cl, so prefer that one over Jupiler's 25 :)
    The Le Fort is quite new, they brewed it after having massive success with Omer.

    If you want a proper cycling beer though, try Kwaremont from Bockor/Omer VDG's arch enemies (Bavik/ De Brabandere). Named after the infamous berg, with the alcohol content matching the hill's average incline of 6.6%.

    Looks like your wife will need to wait a little longer to see him whizzing past the flat: https://www.instagram.com/p/B8JDqb5Ba5c/­?igshid=mbhdajz7tjte

    Would definitely be Van Der Poel for me, with Alaphilippe close second.
    I wonder though what CX results would've looked like over the last 2 years if Wout Van Aert had been able to ride without worries (TdF injury and the year before his contract issues which surely had a massive mental impact).

    Regardless of that, VDP still won all of it, and what he did at Amstel, the MTB WCs etc... would be great for him to get gold at the olympics in the MTB (dont think he is bonkers enough to compete on road as well? But then, we are talking about him)

    I've got a pair, unused. Silver ones. Call it £35?

    Collins complete DIY manual is my go-to. It is quite complete for all basic things, maybe not so for modern electronics and domotics, but for electricity, carpentry, tiling, painting etc it's a perfect starting point

    Yes in an interview he said he found the route on bikepacking.com, which he follows as he is fascinated by it.
    I doubt him entering though as his main goals next season are TdF and Olympic Games.
    Perhaps after his pro racing career
