Three weeks from now we’ll be in the Netherlands. We’ll start cycling on May 13 with a ride from The Hague to Burgh-Haamstede in Zeeland, south of Rotterdam. It should be an easy and scenic day hopping from island to island in the southwest of the Netherlands. Easy unless there is a headwind. Or very easy if there is a tailwind. By the North Sea, you never know.
We were out for a ride today. Part of it was near the Vancouver airport, flat and near the ocean. A strong headwind on the way out to the sea and a fast ride back. A crosswind on the bridge back to the city. Good practice.
That’s an iPhone selfie of Inge at our destination today. Fluorescent green is our colour this year. We didn’t need new cycle clothing, but this colour is so visible. At times we’ll be cycling in poor weather and we want to be seen by drivers.
We’re looking forward to the trip.
