I’m living in this country for almost three years and I refused driving a bike for the first two. I went everywhere by car or if going out I walked. I managed to do pretty well until I got a bike from a friend. After nearly 10 years of not riding anymore I managed to not get hit by a car in the first 5 minutes (but I got hit later after half a year by an elderly couple who didn’t saw me coming).
On Monday, me and a friend wanted to go on holidays. We didn’t book anything on purpose because we wanted to wait and check out the last minute deals. We searched the internet for hours and couldn’t find any good offers which suited both of us. Therefore we spontaneously decided to grab our bikes and cycle through the Netherlands. We are going to make holidays in Holland!!!
During the next 8-9 days we will ride about 400 km’s and safe quite a lot of CO2 and get fit and healthy again 🙂
We have planned following tour:[iframe width=”100%” height=”480″ src=”http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=2961+Kinderdijk,+Niederlande&daddr=Oude+Delft+to:Beeklaan+to:Gevers+Deynootweg+to:Keizerstraat+to:Oosthuizerweg+to:Huiswaarderplein+to:Pontweg%2FN501+to:Groeneweg+to:Bornholmstraat&hl=de&ll=52.689702,5.998535&spn=1.661439,4.938354&sll=53.084127,6.190796&sspn=0.823196,2.469177&geocode=FY28FwMdk7FGACkV3eREVyzERzGqfsHkB2y-lA%3BFUKcGQMdzntCAA%3BFQabGgMd4k9BAA%3BFWw0GwMdrGJBAA%3BFeJBHwMdGqRGAA%3BFTdLIQMd-vlMAA%3BFTIqIwMdpIFIAA%3BFfhdKQMd2jtJAA%3BFcTVKwMdeGtYAA%3BFYgCLAMdIpxkAA&mra=mi&mrsp=9&sz=9&dirflg=w&t=h&z=8″]
Before we can start I have to bring my bike to the bike shop / bike store to let it check. I think I need new breaks!
