“In order to keep your balance, you must keep riding.”
According to Albert Einstein.
So that’s what I’m gonna do. For the next four weeks. Cycling through Holland, Belgium and France. Barcelona, Spain will be my final destination.
Why go there by plane if I can also travel there by using my own two legs and a badass bike? So with this idea in mind, I started to plan my trip. Browsing the internet for days. Arranging a bike. Getting all my stuff together. Deciding which route to follow. Convincing others (and mostly myself) this isn’t a crazy idea. Making sure my knees don’t fall apart even before my journey starts. All in the past four weeks.
I’ve been fully focused on my – so far favorite – ‘Fred-Project’* and I loved it. Yet, I couldn’t have made it this far without the help of others. Forgive me for the short list of VIP’s. Lucia for the supercool bike. Piet for the ultra lightweight tent. My dear family for all the patience and love ( and the roof above my head). My lovely friends for the “It’s gonna be fine, you can do this!” support and all the stuff I’m allowed to borrow. Thank you all!
Ok back to reality. And now? Now I’m ready to
rumble cycle! My first -on the road- update will follow soon.
What you can expect from this blog? Here you can follow my adventures. I won’t be posting long stories.** It will mostly be pictures and short updates about joy, nature, what I eat and how my bum is doing. Fun facts might be included as well.
Ride along & enjoy
If you feel like it please stay up to date by checking my blog once in a while. Questions and feedback are very much appreciated as well. Let’s enjoy the ride!
A self development project focused on the (nearby) future. Could be anything. Should be fun, challenging, achievable and inspiring. Designed by my lovely friend Pien.
**Some entries will be in Dutch. Please forgive me in advance for choosing comfort over style after a long day’s cycling. Google Translate should provide the answers.
