"Every ride is like a tiny holiday"
It is a sunny Sunday in August and I plan to cycle a tour which I already selected some time ago. Just about 70 km, starting from my home, through the typical Dutch countryside between Delft and Rotterdam. This is nature in a relatively urban area of The Netherlands. Interesting detail, this part of the country lies below sea level (upto -12 m).
“Kaokeln is gien kuunst, maor eierkeggen wal” – easier said than done (Drents proverb)
Nice weather is predicted, so I decide to go for another few days of cycling in The Netherlands. After some puzzling and surfing the internet I decide to go to the province of Drenthe. I think I created a nice tour.
"Nie lull'n moar poets'n" (Twente quote ~ make it happen)
Well, I did make it happen! A cycle tour in Twente, it was on my to-do-list for a while. Just 3 days of cycling, 180 km according to the information leaflet I found on the internet. In the end I cycled over 210. No clue if it was due to my navigation skills or the cosy little villages I passed. The extra 30 km were fun as well.
