First day in our tour, riding from Aachen to Tielt-Winge, a little village in Belgium.
The day started cursed. Right before leaving, Felix had a flat tire. Luckily we caught it and fixed it quickly.
As we left Aachen, my allergies kicked in. We stopped pretty quickly on a pharmacy and got me some allergy medicine. Beware, Belgium seems to prefer debit!
Later on, Felix got another flat tire under the heat. It took us a bit of time to fix it due to it being tubeless. Luckily we had a spare tube!
We rode through a really cool park in Netherlands that had us kind of sink underwater. Highly recommended!
Later in the day, not too far from our camping destination, we got a third flat! We knocked on some doors and strangers came to our help with tubes and a friendly hand. We hand patched the bike best we could and rode to the closest hotel we could book as night crept in.
It was a beautiful day and we'll be eternally grateful for the Belgium kindness.
