Oude WetteringJune 22 in the Netherlands ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C
Today we started our bike barge adventure travelling Amsterdam to Brugge. We were expecting to be two Aussies out of a group of maybe 30 cyclists from all over the world - we are two of 11 Aussies...and that is the whole group! They are a lovely group so it should be a great eight days together. We only travelled a short distance before stopping at our first night's destination - Oude Wettering. On this short trip we went through many lochs and raised bridges - it was Saturday and half of Amsterdam were out enjoying the water - such a relaxed lifestyle here. We went for a practice 12km ride after dinner just to iron out any bicycle issues before the bigger ride tomorrow. It was an uneventful but pretty ride, everyone happy with their bikes and keen for tomorrow.
The boat we are on is very comfortable and the crew of three are welcoming and friendly.Read more
