      What could be better than talking about cycling? That's right, cycling! The advantage of working from home and a lovely fresh but sunny spring day made me find a hole for a short round of climbing. 50 kilometers and yet more than 500 altimeters, it is not a given for many in the Netherlands, so I squeeze

    1. The true hell of the north, social ride - Saturday, April 8, 2023.


      The true hell of the north - sounds worse than it is - is a social ride for anyone with a penchant for the spring classics. Less than a week after the Tour of Flanders and a day before Paris-Roubaix, we gather in the beautiful green Drenthe

    1. For the launch of the new SuperSix EVO gen. 4 I went to cycling Valhalla Girona for Cannondale. Taking pictures while cycling on the new SuperSix dealers on the most beautiful roads in the lovely Spanish February sun. Steadily ascending climbs, wonderful descents and consistently good coffee. It's hard

    1. Kroondomein het Loo is famous for its fantastic gravel paths and double track forest paths, on which you can cycle freely for most of the year. The central gravel roads are great, a gravel strip like the Paalweg is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful gravel roads in the Netherlands.

    1. For years I explored the Veluwe and the desire arose to cycle from Arnhem completely green and unpaved as much as possible to Zwolle, the entire length of the Veluwe. The result may be known by now: the GREEN DIVIDE.


      Because cycling 300 km is a bit long for some, I cut the route into pieces: the Heuvelrug

    1. This gravel ride in Dwingelerveld National Park proves once again that Drenthe is an absolute cycling province. Although free cycling is not allowed in the entire area, I manage to make a beautifully varied route by combining the mountain bike route and gravel cycle paths.

    1. Just stomping on the pedals for 1.5 hours and cycling yourself completely empty, it's perfectly possible on the technically very nice MTB route of Schaarsbergen. The route is packed with banked turns and small elevation changes, which are not only fun to cycle, but also quite exhausting at speed. The

    1. Mountain bike routes Schaarsbergen and Arnhem were built not so long ago by the volunteers of MTB Veluwe South and are a real pleasure to cycle! Many sharp turns and fun playful height difference make the combination of the two routes quite tough... and there is much more to discover on MTB routes in

    1. WTSHNN is an absolute classic among Dutch gravel events. Its winter edition the most heroic ;-)


      With a date that coincided exactly with my girlfriend's due date, I was pretty sure in advance that I wouldn't be there this time. When the little one suddenly showed his face two weeks earlier, WTSHNN became

    1. The fact that the Veluwe is a beautiful place for cycling should no longer be a secret. This gravel tour through my backyard is therefore an absolute gem, full of wonderful paths and even more beautiful views, all in the middle of the most beautiful parts of the southern Veluwe.
