I'm new in your forum, so let me introduce myself to all of you. I'm a cyclist from Holland. I made my first tours in 1964, and have been enjoying bicycle tours since then. My first tours outside Holland were back in 1969 when I was 18 years old.
I rode many tours all over Europe, especially in Belgium and France.
I have succeeded the Hundred Cols Tour , which is said to be the toughest bicycle ride in the world .
I'm not a world traveler (although I did some cycling in Cambodia, which was very exciting in those days when the Khmer Rouge was still active over there).
I do most of my traveling by bike, because I do not own a car, which is very rare in Holland.
