Ride Afsluitdijk (140km) Updated

NEW DETAILS

After checking the forecast it would make sense to have the wind on our backs over the dijk. So, as Paula suggested, we should ride the opposite way around. The new details are listed below...

 

Details -
Meet at Centraal Station ferry point @ 08:00 (NEW TIME!!)

Ride to Stavoren - 140km (we have plenty extra time to stop on the dijk and grab a bite to eat afterwards)

Catch the 14:25 ferry back to Enkhuizen (price 10.60 for you & 5.20 for your bike)

http://www.veerboot.info/UK/index.php

Just in case they don't accept cards, have cash on you for coffee on the ferry.

Arrive in Enkhuizen @ 15:45 and take the train back to Amsterdam

WEATHER

Overcast, winds from the South West at 4Bft. High of 17'c

      To clean me of the curse you mean, or because I smell?

    You are welcome, it worked out great. Shame I lost my way a little, nothing too serious gladly. Some sections were new to me.

    Thanks for organizing. Great ride!

    Hey guys, I'm on my way but will probably be 10 minutes late, so please wait for me :)

    Hi everyone!! Very glad the direction was reversed: biking FIRST, and feeling the pride of "conquered kilometers" passing by on the boat/train back home AFTERWARDS is much more rewarding! ;-)

    Also very glad about the time change: 6:45 would have been brutal...! :-)

    Just in case, it's good to exchange a couple of phone numbers. Here's mine: 0644-006789. See you all tomorrow at 8:00.

      Too late, already 4am... I'm afraid I 'll have to skip it, sorry!

    More weather information... It the wind might be a little stronger in places than the ideal, but the only section affecting us will be between the end of the dijk (where we turn south) and Stavoren (30km approx). http://www.windfinder.com/weather-maps/forecast/netherlands

    Tomorrow's wind at the start of the dijk

    Hi Everyone, I've updated the ride details to take into account the weather. I hope this is ok with you all. Makes sense to have the wind behind us over the dijk. See you tomorrow.

    hi ronnie, if we have south wind, would be optional to do the traject amsterdam - stavoren and then take the train for the way back?

      Hi Paula, looking at the forecast this would be the sensible option. I'll keep an eye on it and re-post Saturday with an update. :)

    Hi Eveline, I can't do it the following week but there is nothing to stop us doing it again later in the year depending how it goes. Nice to meet you the other week.

  • Eveline

    hey Ron,
    I would love to go, but I can't sunday June 16. Would it be possible for you to postpone it to Sunday June 23?
    I would be in then!
