Car-Sick Glasgow | Documenting the atrocious conditions for cyclists and pedestrians in Scotland's largest city
Monday, 18 January 2010
Yesterday was the Noordelijke Velomobieltocht - Northern Velomobile Ride. It was organised by Peter, who lives a few hundred metres from me here in Assen.
We had a bit of snow overnight, and I set off into it with a sparkling clean Mango which I'd washed the day before.
Peter's route took us through just short of 60 km of Drents countryside. It all looked beautiful in the fresh snow which had fallen overnight. We stopped for lunch and there was delicious soup provided when we returned to his home at the end of the day.
You can also see a few more photos on picasaweb.
Other participants also documented the ride.
Peter's experiences as organiser can be read on his blog, Alex took lots of photos and Wilfred's blog post includes a really nice film:
We didn't have such a big group as the Oliebollentocht a few weeks ago, but it was a very pleasant event all the same.
A group of us go on similar rides most weekends.
