Why that title?
Then I first make a comparison with my previous ride "Zandhaas". The "Zandhaas" route is mainly sandy with limited real (firm) gravel. With this route today, Ascension Day, it was the other way around. A lot of gravel and little loose sand. According to Komoot 74% unpaved. I see that Komoot… read more

The route goes through beautiful area 🥰. Woods, open fields, heathland landscape. However, it is a more challenging route than most of my gravel routes. Because of the many loose/loose sand, this is really not a real gravel route, even though there are also kilometers of it. The route is about 65% unpaved… read more

Another beautiful ride through the area De Gelderse Poort. I take my rides here more often and love it. For example, see this collection: komoot.nl/collection/1161615/-gelderse-poort
It was warm, that took some getting used to. Along the way I refilled a water bottle with friends (I had already used 2… read more

A route on gravel roads and paths and parts MTB route. Subsurface 45% unpaved, that proportion is mainly unpaved due to the start and end part (through the city and the part from and through Mook to the end has few unpaved kilometres).
The route has a limited shelf life, because it partly follows themtb-rijkvannijmegen.nl/route-overzicht… read more

Finally participated in an organized tour again and finally this gravel ride by TC Liemers continued after a few postponements due to corona.
I would have liked to have ridden the long route of 125 km, but due to recovery from a bad cold it had become the shorter route. The shorter one was 85 km according… read more

This is another very nice gravel ride!
In the same area as this ride from 26/02/22: komoot.nl/tour/684292541
Both rides are very nice and in terms of the amount of unpaved surface, the ride from Feb 26, '22 has more unpaved, namely 74%. Today's 64%. However, in today's stage the proportion of real gravel… read more

Today it was really shorts weather (also short sleeves by the way). Fantastically sunny.
I was on the road again with my racing bike. Now again through the Ooij and Düffel. I made another variation on previous rides. See this collection of my other routes in this beautiful area: komoot.nl/collection/1161615/-gelderse-poort… read more

Looking for the sun. I found it in Wanssum and took it back to Nijmegen
Until Wanssum, the turning point of the route, it was mainly very cool and cloudy. A single splash from the sky, but that was not allowed to have a name. The way back was sunny. That made a difference to the temperature, in a positive… read more

I often think of a title of a ride during the ride. So now. It's a good thing Komoot can't give the smell 😜, because for the word "Farmland" I was inspired by the many manure that was released over the fields 🤢
Unfortunately, when I got on my bike after work, the sun had already disappeared. Moderate… read more
