The 70km cycle to Gent involved all sorts of weather, wind, rain, sun – and at one point even a hailstorm.
Thankfully it brightened up as the day progressed so I arrived in Gent to a sunny late afternoon and evening.
First was the city brewery, only to find them closing early for the day – so it was onwards to TrolleKelder for the first beer; a Maredsous Dubbel.
Next stop was Waterhuis aan de Bierkant.
In a nice setting by the water there’s a very good selection of taps and bottled beers – including Gulden Draak at 10%.
Which just so happens to be where we are headed for tomorrow.
