The old water mill at Bokrijk. - The free day on Wednesday saw many take the short ride to Bokrijk. Bokrijk is an open air museum where many old buildings from the surrounding area have been relocated.They are brought alive by the staff who are dressed up as they would have been, and the excellent collection of furniture and items in the houses.This mill was originally used to extract vegetable oil from Linseed or Rape.

Saturday Ride - On the Saturday there were no organised rides, so Christopher had a ride on his own bike in the safety of the extensive cycle routes.

Arial bike parking at Bokrijk - Bokrijk provided an excellent destination, making a round trip of 14 miles for Christopher (probably more for him as he spent a lot of the time on the way back zig-zagging or trying to pull wheelies!)

Bokrijk - The play area at Bokrijk is free, great fun.Many of the play things are never seen in the UK - maybe the Health and Safety rules are too tight.


Ghent - Christopher and Gromit in Ghent - we stopped there on the way back to the ferry
