Frisian Eleven Cities Cycling Tour

Postby djrikki » 11 Jan 2019, 10:49am

Anyone else taking part in this popular bike ride in the Netherlands? Looks like it's going to be enormous fun; the pleasure of riding along the cycle infrastructure is going to be a joy that I am looking forward to with much anticipation.

A "plastic hats mandatory" ride in the Netherlands.

That's novel! :twisted:

15000 participants with varying speeds and skills on narrow roads. I'd pick another day

Probably still better than an average day risking your life on UK roads
