I have left the house for a week wearing odd shoes.
It was still a very nice cycle this morning.
I’ve cycled to/from Hoek van Holland a few times now, but today I picked up the green route; and how different it is.
First woodland, then hundreds of acres of greenhouses followed by the banks of the river punctuated with picturesque harbours.
I was even able to catch up on some barge racing.
However, just as I arrived in Rotterdam it clouded over and the temperature dropped, shortly before it started raining my hands began turning blue with cold.
Weird weather, but a brilliant route that I will use again should I be heading in the same direction some other time.
Speaking of lapping up:
I spent the rest of the day trying out some of the best craft beer in Rotterdam, and mentally preparing for what promises to be a big day of cycling tomorrow.
You can read about the beers here.
Antwerp here we come.
