Met up with Melvin (Elev12k) and Roy (Yoeddy) last weekend in Schoorl which provided top riding and evidence that while Holland is not hilly, it certainly is not flat.

Hopped up on a couple of cans of Rodeo and determination to show these fellows how we Brits 'ride dirty', the following pictures tell the story (PS Roy waiting for me at every intersection not documented and sadly my camera batteries ran out without recording my trials ability).

Good riding, top chat and whiskey to finish - these guys know how to roll!

Sorry Bas :oops: ..but.......do you actually bike? Just drop me a line and I'll show you around Schoorl anytime.
This little meet just started as a bike pick up by Ed (Melvin arranged a nice Colnago for him) but ended up actually riding it.... got all out of hand with Whisky in the end :D ... We had a great time, next time we'll make it a bigger event.
Cheers Roy
