Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

Hi,

Im off to visit my freinds in 's-Hertogenbosch in a couple of weeks and may take my bike. Anyone got any good 40-50 mile routes from here? Can I drive anywhere for a ride? Is there any special precautions to take when riding in Holand?

Thanks,

James

It will not be hard to find a place to ride, bike paths are everywhere, although I am not sure about any specific routes though in that area (i am in The Hague). I get on google maps to plot out a journey in my area. Put a bell on your bike because the cloggies tend to ride two or even three wide on the paths but a quick ring on your bell and they move over for you. Also it's a fairly crappy time of the year with weather so a rain and/or wind proof jacket would be advised.

So no riding on the road? I have ridden on the paths before and they seem to be too slow for a decent ride. When you get out of town can you ride on the roads legally?

Hey James,

I live some 15 km's from 's-Hertogenbosch (or Den Bosch, as we mostly call it) and I log my routes with a Garmin. Maybe I can help you out? I always try to avoid small bicycle paths because I ride without a bell. Sites like gpsies.com also offer great possibilities for searching for routes in the neighborhood.

Let me know what I can do for you!

Cheers,

Sjoerd

Hi James,

Like Sjoerd said, do a search on "den bosch' on the gpsies.com website. I run a race- and mountainbike store just outside the city (Rijnstraat 28, 's Hertogenbosch). Me might meet and do a ride together. Roads are fairly good over here, yet it's all flat, yet windy.

Please let me know if I can do anything for you.

Kind regards,
Jip

As for cycling Amsterdam might not be the most ideal area, yet it's a very interesting and entertaining scenery. Enjoy your time and please don't bother to contact us if you're around.
