I’m going to make this post super short and mostly pictures. On Monday we left the city and biked around the Amsterdamse Bos. An urban forest just south of the city it is in some ways like Forest Park combined with Washington Park and Hayden Meadows as it has lots of hiking trails and cycling paths but also a huge man made lake for crew races and other sports fields, a couple restaurants (one with goats and other animals) and even a spa.
I haven’t been recording (on Ride with GPS and perhaps that’s a mistake, oh well) any of my rides have have taken within cities although I definitely used by bike to get around Ghent, Antwerp, Gouda, and now Amsterdam too. In fact I haven’t taken a single tram yet though they are plentiful. But this day was sort of halfway between a biking day and a city day so I did record it in 2 parts and you can find my RWGPS links in the sidebar here. It’d be nice to embed each Ride with each blog post but they are pretty easy to match up. Also I’ve never even done it with RWGPS though I would guess you can since you can with Strava. Anyway, I might do this later but, truly, blogging from my phone using the WordPress app has been quite a nightmare. Some days I’ve fought with it more than others but I foresee a fair amount of cleanup when I do some day get back to a real computer. Still they look pretty good for on the road posts no?
I digress. Back to the pictures.
