Ride to the Merckx bar in Eccleshall for some Belgian beer


I arranged to meet up with Tim this afternoon for a ride to the excellent Merckx Belgian bar in Eccleshall.

We met on the lane near home and headed off on a slightly longer route to Eccleshall to get a few miles in before the beer. Quite a wind coming in from the west and a bit wet but we made good progress and I managed to crack a few Strava PB’s.


At the bar, we settled in for a few of the excellent Belgian beers. Really nice but REALLY strong. Some were getting on for 10% proof!

A great few hours and a few miles under the belt to start the week with.
