Cycling: Gouda – Uithoorn

Route of the 5th day: Gouda – Total km/day: 46.04 km – (gpx)
Accommodation: hotel by the Zijdelmeer lake

  • We had a good part of the trip on the countryside, we just stopped to eat some nuts and drink water in a park.
  • This time I peed on the road. Since it didn’t stop coming people from all directions, I made a “v” with the bikes and asked my father to stand closing the triangle.
  • We got a bit lost again because they changed the number 90 of the routes… It was visible the change, they just pasted a new number on the sign. We went on and it was wrong. As I mistrusted the way and checked the GPS. So we were able to get back on track with no major laps.
  • After that, part of the course was on the edge of the Kromme Mijdrecht river and Amstel river. Beautiful and peaceful. There were not as many people on the bike path as in previous days.
  • The arrival was super relaxing, the hotel was on the edge of Lake Zijdelmeer. It was a beautiful late afternoon.

No dia seguinte, estávamos iniciando um caminho de retorno à Amsterdam, passando por uma cidade muito simpática, chamada Uithoorn. Ao chegarmos, na metade da tarde, parecia que havia festa nas redondezas do hotel, mas, na verdade, era uma pequena feira, onde os vizinhos negociam suas coisas, artesanato, bebidas, comidas típicas, etc. O Hotel era na beira do rio, com uma vista muito bonita.

Depois de um passeio de reconhecimento pela cidade, voltamos ao Hotel para nos prepararmos para sair, indo jantar em um restaurante muito lindo, às margens do rio, quando tivemos a oportunidade de nos deliciar com o pôr do sol (por volta das 21 horas…).aspas_fecham
