The Plan

The Plan: Two months of unassisted cycling and camping through Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and wherever else our legs may take us.

The Route: Starting in Brussels and flying out of Berlin are the only given at this point. We plan to cycle parts of the Flanders Cycle Route, Rhine River and the Danube River. We will also be using the EuroVelo and regional cycling routes.

Accommodation: WarmShowers website (like couchsurfing for cyclists). We are also planning on staying at campsites, backyards of friendly locals or in the wilderness.

Day 10: Middleburg to Haamstede - 50km

We awoke to find that Elizabeth's rear rack had buckled under the weight of the panniers, probably on the cobblestone paths leading out of Belgium. We asked some local cyclists for a store, but it being Sunday, nothing was open. One of the cyclists  insisted on helping us and brought us to his garage where we were able to rig up the rack temporarily.

We headed north to Veere and marveled at the enormous church in town. 

We then cycled along the 5 mile long Oosterscheldekering, a man-made storm barrier that protects much of Zeelands inner waterways. We met a friendly old couple who ran a campsite in Haamstede, where we ended up staying for the night.
