Ride starting Sun Oct 16 05:42:06 2005

47.92 km 157208.60 feet 29.77 mi 18835.00 seconds 313.92 minutes 5.23 hours 5.69 mi/hr

I was in Amsterdam for EuroOSCON, and the airfare was $1,000 cheaper if I travelled over a Saturday night. That gave me an extra full day, so I rented a bike and went for a ride. MacBike calls the route "The Great Waterland Bicycle Tour". The map below is fairly uninteresting because Terraserver has no coverage for the Netherlands. However, if you click on the image, it will take you to a google maps version of the same thing. Switch to the satellite view and you'll see where I sent.

It was a fairly decent ride, almost 30 miles. The pace is horrible (5.69 mph) because I stopped for lunch, stopped in a little park to do taiji, and stopped to take photos. My map generator has no tiles for the Netherlands, but you can click through to the Google Maps mash-up.

Here's a scan of the brochure. Click on it for a very large rendition of it.
