Wednesday - Elfstedentoch in spring

The Elsftedentoch is the gruelling and spectacular ice skate marathon that many Dutch are hoping and praying for each winter, when the thermometer goes steadily below zero for a certain number of days.

Alas, there has not been an Elsftedentoch since 1997, however on the 20 May there's a spring version, along the same canals but for amateur and semi-professional cyclists.

The registration for 2013 is now closed, however no one forbids you to form your own peloton with friends and ride leisurely speed on your bike along the path, stopping for a picnic when the going gets tough or when you start craving your broodjes kaas.
