A 4-day tour in North Holland - 400 km

Permalink 06/09/12 10:58, by georgio8, Categories: Uncategorized, tour , Tags: cycle touring, holland, iphone cycle touring, moulton ns, netherlands

Jean was away on grandmother duty in Spain recently and I visited my daughter Anna and her family in The Hague (and did some grandfather duty). I then had a few spare days, so having taken my favourite bike with me to The Hague, I did this short tour in North Holland (the bit of above Amsterdam by the North Sea coast) and Frieseland (the bit on the east side of the IJsselmeer - formerly the Zuiderzee).

Although the early summer weather in The Netherlands wasn't good this year I struck a mainly dry 4-day patch with useful winds. The tour turned out really well, with good encounters along the way and a route plan that worked. I'd wanted to see those areas ever since our tandem tour in the southern part of The Netherlands in 2007

George's Wales Tour July/August 2011

The idea for this tour was to do some cycling in hilly terrain and to visit the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth. I hadn't cycled in mid-Wales before; its scenery was another benefit.
