I’ve just come back at home from one of my best holidays…
I’ve been ten days in Holland, by unicycle, and I’ve met mr. Klaas Bil, I’ve ridden with him and I’ve slept at his home!
I’ve put some pics in my gallery:
But let’s start from the beginning…
Me and a friend of mine had decided to do a trip in Holland, by unicycle, and one day I’ve checked unicyclist.com to find some hints.
There was already a thread about unicyling in holland, and
there I put my questions, and there everything begun…
Klaas answered me with personal message, and from that we’ve started to speak about our idea.
After some emails, we went in Holland!
With us there were also 2 girls (they rode bkes).
We did, by uni, Amsterdam-Haarlem, Haarlem-Leiden, Leiden-Den Haag, then again Leiden-Zoetermeer, (this one with Klaas). Then we went to Gouda, Utrecht, Amsterdam, but by bke and by train, cause my friend was tired…
Everything has gone in the best way!
We rode more or less 15 km everyday, with big backpacks on our shoulders .
We rode 24" unicycle, cause we don’t have bigger wheels… they’re not the best uni to do these trip, Klaas has a 29er and that’s really better, but with 24" it’s good too.
This is the trip we’ve done:
After arriving in Amsterdam, we rode until Haarlem.
In Haarlem we slept in Erik’s house, a friend of Klaas, and with him we rode a couple of km (he rides uni too!). The first big thank goes to Erik, who’s been very nice and helpful with us!
The following day we went to Leiden, and we rode between kms of tulips fields, on the left and on the right! The pic with tulips has been taken on that day.
Then we went to Den Haag, and the following day we went by train to Leiden, where we started the best ride of the holiday, with Klaas and without backpacks (we rode without them (and that was really better) cause we gave them to Klaas in the morning! ). We rode out of a city, along a river, then between fields and sheeps. Amazing!
We had dinner with Klaas and his family, we slept at Klaas house, and the morning after we went by uni to the train station, to take the train to Rotterdam.
The following days the weather was changeable, so we went to Gouda by train and to Utrecht by bike. We use the uni only to do local trips.
So, really thanks to Erik and Klaas, with their help our trip has been unforgettable!
And, Holland is the unicyclists paradise!
6000 KM of cycling routes… You can go everywhere with a uni!
WOW WOW WOW
Thanks again to Klaas Bil, he’s really a nice person.
