A 4-day tour in North Holland - 400 km
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).
Comments and suggestions welcome.
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.
