One evening an email dropped into our inbox with this invitation to go cycling. We'd been cycling with this group of people before, and enjoyed the trip, so it seemed like a great idea to go again. Not only for the fun of it but also as a good practice run to get us in shape for the summer trip.

It also seemed like an idea opportunity for us to try cycle touring with Bromptons as we needed to take a train to get to the starting point, and take a train home from the finish in Rotterdam........ My mate Matt who last cycled with us in 2003 in Zeeland, and broke himself, decided that now was the time to face his demons and revisit some of the places we had been to in 2003. So he popped over for a couple of weeks of touring and to join us on this trip.
