500km Done

We've made it, back to the ferry and on the shortest route of the journey so far. Holland it's been wonderful.

One thing we've found over here is the distinct lack of facilities for cyclists. Cafes, Restaurants or even little rest stops are very few and far between. This is making the … Continue reading Leerdam – Nijmegen (Oosterhout) – Arnhem (Wolfheze)
