Belgium, you are doing a fantastic job, but a few pictures might persuade us to use some of the Aires that you put on.
Thanks again for your input:cool:

Hi Belgium, I am quite at home in France, but I do find your posts a little confusing!
I understand what you are saying and I can differentiate between the different Aires, but I think that some folks that are not so used to France, may have trouble.
This is not a criticism, just that you think the way that the French think, but we don't:D
I think you are doing a great job, but please bear with us English as we are not as multi lingual or multi lingual thinking as you are.
Thanks again for your input:cool:

Hi Grath,
I know; photo's say more than 100 words. And I have some on those lists.
But somehow I am too stupid to minimilize them and putting it again together.
(it gives me the creeps). Maybe some day the light will go on :D

Tru. Impossible to imagine the French way of thinking :eek: and the Belgian way seems to be even more impossible.:D But I'll do my best to overcome it.
Don't hesitate to tell me when I'm confusing. :D

Hi Julie,
It's not that difficult.:eek: Between { } is the page and the grid of the Michelin Atlas. (a must if you go to France). So you find the village or hamlet. Once there you'll find your way to the spot.
You can also have a look on your computer: eg http://www.multimap.com/maps or http://www.viamichelin.
(for France also type in the department # ). You can also zoom in with Google Earth.
Have fun

would it not be less confusing if you gave a full grid reference for the sites you have listed or at least a better description of where the sites are?:eek:
this is in no way a criticism of your good intentions its just i think some of us (me included) may find your lists confusing

I will look up the satnav references. May take some time I realize (and some headache) Also will try Grath's advice to put some photo's via photobucket
(will cost me another kg of aspirines :D). But will do.
In the meantime you can have some puzle-fun with this list :rolleyes:
Have fun

Kath says that she likes Swiss Cheese, the same as her brain (lots of holes):D;):eek:
Getting back to the photo's, when I have had trouble doing something on the PC, I write it down so that I can do it again, the only trouble is that I then loose the piece of paper with the instructions written down on:eek::D

Hi Terry & Sue,
There are several of these places. For sure it is not in the Ardennes; the only cobbled roads are in Flanders. (you almost produced a 'Belgian' incident here :eek::D).
It could be: 'de muur van Geraardsbergen' (cobbled road 18% up) (cycle it down, not up !). (it's in 'Oost Vlaanderen' halfway Brussels-Ghent down to the south) MH-places around there:
GERAARDSBERGEN (I17)
You can park down town near the Dender- river (could be busy daytime)
or: small P at church top hill: nearby (few km's N E of Geraardsbergen)
@ ONKERZELE via r.bank Dender(river),
PMS „Provinciaal Domein De Gavers“, free service,14€/n, 80 Pl
@ SCHENDELBEKE left bank Dender
P Jeugdherberg (Youthhostel) "'t Schipke" Kampstraat 59, 2pl, WC, tap
PS yachtharbour (pay) >'Gaverplas'

or it could be near 'Ronse' (40km south of Ghent): 'Kluisberg'
there are several small wilding parkings in the wood at the top of the mountain near the cafés-restaurants. In the hamlet of 'Kwaremont' is a parking at the church(I belief). It is a nice walking and cycling area
(and yes it is called 'De Vlaamse Ardennen' - Flemish Ardennes).

Have fun

Hi Terry
I guess you mean a part of the 'Paris-Roubaix' ('the hell of the north). Paris-Roubaix is often compared to the other famous cobbled road race, the 'Ronde van Vlaanderen' held in Belgium. The two courses differ as Paris-Roubaix is more flat and has more technical cobbled sections. By comparison, Ronde van Vlaanderen contains a series of hills, many of which are on cobbles, like the 'Koppenberg' the 'Kluisberg' and 'de muur van Geraardsbergen'.
It is in the very north of France in the regio of Valenciennes: the dreadfull 'le bois de Wallers-Arenberg' (a section of 3km cobbles in the wood, north of Valenciennes) and 'Mons-en-Pévèle' (between Douai and Lille).
If you are going to cycle that, you have all my compassion :rolleyes:
