Gedinne, a charming little village at the borders of a nice paddock. On the edge of that pastoral paddock a beautiful road that climbs and descends, turning left and right, and which, forced by the logics of bending and sweeping in all kinds of directions, ends up where it first started. Which turns out to be very practical when you want to lap that road on your motorcycle. Lapping this road several consecutive times you end up having a race, a beautiful race, a hot race! As everybody wants the chequered flag first all ends up in the heat of the fight. And because of that heat they get thirsty, so some of them decide to mount a tent, put some tables and chairs in it, and a bar, of course.
Needless to say that those guys were Belgian adepts of classic racing motorcycles. So they founded a club they named CRMB (Classic Racing Motorcycles Belgium). An English name yes, because as good Belgians they thought it sounds better that way.
We’d like you to know that the races are open to all pre 1972 motorcycles and that you can take a one-off licence for this event, so there’s no excuse not to come and join us in the most beautiful race of the year at the most beautiful Belgian racetrack . Pass the message and see you all in Gedinne!
"A metropolitan bicycle ride with a bit of style."
On Saturday the 9th of April, in the the year 2011, between the hours of ten and eleven in the morning, on a day that combined the warmth and unmistakable fresh charm of spring, numerous individuals in the city of London readied themselves to take part in a spectacle that would transgress the bounds of contemporary fashion and etiquette.
Put This On visits London to look at the ways it has been shaped by (and has reinvented) its menswear traditions. We visit W. Bill, the legendary tweed vendor in a basement just off Savile Row. We talk with the painter and musician Ian Bruce about how he's reshaped the legacy of the SoHo dandy. We visit the Drake's factory to see how a tie is made. Then we go to Savile Row, and chat with tailor-owner Richard Anderson and owner-designer Patrick Grant about the tension between old and new in the world's original tailoring street. Plus Dave Hill offers his thoughts on sport sunglasses in Rudiments.
Revisit Bob Dylan's earliest days in New York City and the recording sessions that first made him famous on "The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964," the latest installment of The Bootleg Series. For more information, visit bobdylan.com and order the album at http://bit.ly/bobdylanstore
