On an early Saturday morning we gathered for
the start of a 110km tour around Woerden. A small city in "the green heart" of
the western part of Holland. They had organized two small loops of 25km and one big loop
of 60km. So you had the option to skate less, without having to bother how to get back to
The first 25km were very slippery, because it had rained and
the roads were still wet. some mud and clay on the roads weren't very helpful either.
Martijn, Martiza and Germaine joined the pack after the first loop of 25km. Maritza had
skated and partied in Groningen the previous night and stepped out after 25km. :-)
In between the loops there were drinks and food at the
organizing club. After a short break we continued with the final loop of 60km. This one
was much harder, because of the wind and sometimes rough surface. Bikes and police cars
escorted us on our trip to block the traffic at intersections.
A nice tour and well organized. :-)
