IJMuiden to Volendam

A gentle warm-up and shakedown today: 26 miles. Considering that this time last year I could hardly walk, I feel amazingly well. There are some niggles: my toes say they have worked. But we are working: Bruce and Elly are cycling!

There have been diversions through IJmeiden’s docks, some headwinds, long straight tracks. Quite a lot of smooth, cycle-friendly tarmac, but a fair proportion of red tiles with associated noise and loss of speed.
