This is mainly about my solo bike rides. See George and Jean's Holidays and Pastimes for descriptions of our 19 tandem tours.

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
