So we had a weekend to spend without the kids.
Anja found a nice hotel in Egmond aan zee and of we wend weekend for cycling on the Tandem “Ivan the Terrible”.
That means much less car traffic.
But this say's nothing about wild horses and Scottish highlanders.
Time for hydration and refueling in Noordwijk.
It was also the Day of the lifeboat. So in every coastalplace the saw the lifeboat in action full of new supporting members.
The Scottish Highlanders were taking a rest in the shadow.
Next stop the Birdlake
With a big "Aalscholver" colony (cormorants)
A great modern hotel 100meters from the beach and 5 minutes walking from the old centre. The rooms a big and pleasant.
The have special lockable bicycle parkings in the underground parkingspace.
So now worries over the bicycle.
What more can you want after 100km on a tandem on a very hot day than relax in a Finnish sauna, infrared cabin, Japanese baths, big jacuzzi and big swimming pool.
And you can use them all wearing "nothing". And that is an advance as you are traveling light.
A great hotel for cyclist!!
