Car-Sick Glasgow | Documenting the atrocious conditions for cyclists and pedestrians in Scotland's largest city
Friday, 17 October 2008
Last Saturday afternoon, Terry and I cycled from Assen to Groningen on folding bikes and returned by train.
Terry's is a Brompton, while I have a cheap bicycles4u folder. It's not really in the same class, but given that I don't need a folding bike often it's pretty good. It did just fine for this 40 km ride.
As is usually the case in the Netherlands, most of the distance was covered on either cycle paths away from the road or roads closed to cars.
The route is one of those possible on the cycling holidays we organise in this area.
