What better way to see the countryside and enjoy the best transportation system in The Netherlands? We borrowed Cat and René’s bikes (what good friends!) and cycled down their lane to the bike path along the canal. With a quick left turn, we headed south.
The weather cooperated with a perfect autumn day, and in minutes we were leaving the city behind us.
We cruised at a speed at which we could take in the scenery and were amused when two, even-more-elderly-than-us women passed us. No matter!
We enjoyed our afternoon ride in the countryside. For travellers like us, who venture forth often and in unfamiliar territory, it’s reassuring to know we’d have lots to see and we wouldn’t get lost in The Netherlands.
