Europe By Bike by trevorborden


Star 3


We rode 20 kilometers from Haarlem into Amsterdam today. Bought some cheese and salami from a small market on the way to add to our left overs from yesterday. Ate lunch on a bridge over a canal. I took a group photo for a bunch of British kids smoking cigarettes, feeling rather proud of their Amsterdam rampage. We then went to Centraal station to figure out our route to Berlin and we have decided to bike to Rheine, Germany and then catch the train from their to Berlin. Should take us 3 days. We rode back to Haarlem in time to buy some wine and help get things ready for dinner with our hosts. Tomorrow we start our move East. We are eager to get some miles under us. We are always overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity of strangers.

Distance by bike: 40 Kilometers
