About Alfred Bollen 🍀
Liefhebber van racefiets en cyclocrosser. Deze laatste voornamelijk voor gravelritten, maar ik schrik niet terug voor beperkt technische single tracks en MTB-parcoursen. Veel routes zet ik zelf uit (racefiets en gravel). Sinds 2022 wandel ik ook. Als ik gebruik maak van routes van anderen, doe ik dat met bronvermelding.

The goal today was to go from Nijmegen to Albergen by racing bike, over the shortest possible distance, which could only be longer to avoid the boring and busy parts.
That worked out well. The route turned out even more beautiful than I expected. Only straight through the center of Almelo was not a good…2 days ago

The intention was a nice gravel ride, but a torn tire forced us to abandon the dirt road ride (don't tempt fate). With an emergency repair (tube patches on the inside of the tire) we managed to get home safely on asphalt. That return journey is not included in this trip registration (less interesting…6 days ago

Planned a route at home on the gamble, partly via the black lines on the Komoot map, without knowing what we would encounter and whether it was passable.
Positively surprised! Discovered paths, where I had never been (I have often been in the area). Planning something on the gamble can turn out wrong…May 19, 2023

On repeat, this ride minus a few miles:

Ideal cycling weather, nice in summer uniform 🤩May 6, 2023
A beautiful route, tough too, due to the many sand (proportion of real solid gravel was not very large) and bouncing over the many flint roads. Those flints fall under the category of vowel roads, but are absolutely not tight flat pavement (De Hel van het Noorden). If you're tired of the bouncing, or…April 29, 2023
Calm weather, some sun at the start and light clouds.
Walk on and around the Kuiperberg. Beautiful paths in the beautiful rolling landscape near Ootmarsum. The paths are mainly very firm gravel, except for a single softer path or grass track (with a piece of stepping stones; see photos).
Sometimes you…April 28, 2023

Nice ride and route, in sunny windy weather. For a large part along De Maas and further as much as possible through small roads and paths (sometimes less suitable for high speed, so take it easy).
By road bike, but the route is suitable for any type of bike.April 23, 2023
A nice tour from Zenderen by Monique. Nice paths (including Ganzepad), along meadows, Oude Bornse Beek, through Arboretum Kloostergaarde. Along the way beautiful breeds of cows, horses and donkeys.
Arboretum Kloostergaarde has a tea house, nice location for a stop.
Start/finish from a parking lot, from…April 15, 2023
From Nijmegen Lindenholt to Park Lingezegen in the Over-Betuwe. I have a collection of this, for more inspiration: komoot.com/nl-nl/collection/1145060/-over-betuwe
Today a ride in windy cloudy weather, but absolutely not cold.
There are a few mistakes in it. It took some searching in the neighborhood in…April 10, 2023
Inspired by a route on Komoot, which we largely followed. There are also marked hiking trails in this area. The MTB route is crossed very often.
On a short part the route went over the MTB route. Perhaps it would have been better to deviate from the route there as well. It wasn't a big problem today…
