Don and I are busily packing our tandem and duffels for another trip across the ocean. We depart Indy on Tuesday, drive to Fairfax, VA (where Don’s brother lives), then fly from Dulles Airport to Amsterdam, where our latest adventure begins.
With the assistance of Tulip Cycling, we plan to ride solo (can a tandem ride solo?) to several cities and towns in the Netherlands, leisurely pace, flat terrain, hopefully reasonable weather — this for 9 days. Tulip Cycling has planned the routes and hotels, and will transport our luggage each day, so we just pedal and explore.
Then on September 24th, we meet up with other 14 tandem teams and enjoy Belgium with Pennywise Tandem Tours (we did Barcelona to Toulouse with them 2 years ago.) We will be back in the US on October 9th. We will end our trip with a visit to New York City for a reunion of Don’s graduate school rugby team.
I hope to write regularly about our adventures and share photos. Thanks for joining us on the road once again.
