Belgium Belgium Bicycle tour various locations July 13'

Recommended Posts

Following on from Mooksters rather excellent recent report from our trip across the pond, allow me to give you bicycle porn and derps from erbex's most visited. So I will spare any history, it's all well known.

Fun filled with excellent company, as this hobby should be, two and a half days driving over 650 miles, ten sites, and I never creamed anyone!

Grands Moulins de Paris mill.

From downstairs I hear “ Guys, we have company†“Ooâ€Â, said I, “Fellow explorers?†Not unless they are in white shirts and black trousers! Really don’t know why they climbed that dirty tall fence, much easier way in I thought.

1 policeman, 2 policeman 3 policeman 4…… 5 policeman 6 policeman 7 policeman 8……..

And 1 outside blocking in my ‘Engleesh stuupeed’ car, with 3 of theirs. Got lucky after spurting hand sanitizer all over policeman 9, he had a sense of humour, they all did. Poppy, call me :-)

And a windmill that has been everything, including a bowling alley.

And my favourite, it's been respected so far, only two explorers 'tags' in the dust, which don't feel right here at all.

Next trip, before we depart, we will check all car holes for leaking UHT cartons!

      This was an odd explore, from the front of the building it looked like a standard office block but the inside told a different story.
      First off, some fairly standard looking CNC machines - but the further in we ventured the clearer it became. There was an entire production line left in situ for making alloy wheels!
      Each stage of the build process had its own machining area and the wheels were transported from one area to the next on a huge conveyor system - everything from milling, shot blasting, heat treatment, lacquering and pressure testing. Many of the machines had lot numbers attached and it was my guess that it wouldn't be long before everything including an immaculate rack of machine tools were auctioned off.
      We gradually made our way to the front of the building, where the only notable room was a small laboratory - still half equipped. An enjoyable explore and a good end to the day.
      Visited with Jaff Fox and thanks to H for his info.














      This sign, roughly translated means: food and drink are strictly prohibited in the lacquer plant.

      After trying to see as much of Belgium as we could in four days, we all decided that im power station would be high on the list . The size of this place is immense and i found myself putting my tripod down wondering round and absorbing as much of the place as possible ive been back twice to this site and shots are from all three trips my apologies for not being able to find any history ...
      on with the pics ...
