Today I changed my approach, I took a train in the morning to Groningen, on arrival I took of on my bike towards Amsterdam, on the ride I pass through Assen, Meppel, Kampen, Dronten and Almere.
In Kampen there was a celebration on of some kind, the city center was closed down for traffic and a number of tall ships was in the harbor. Took a picture of it from the bridge in to city centre.
Here is another shot of Kampen and tall ships that was in the harbor.
It was tuff ride, it started in rainy condition, so I dressed up in rain clothes, I did not have any rain socks for my bike shoes with me, so I took of my socks. Near Assen the weather cleared up, and up to Dronten the weather was fine, then after Dronten a heavy rain shower came in lasted for 20 minutes, the last 30 km was hard, I just had fumes left when I reach home.
