Splügenpass - Border between Switzerland and Italy, August 2016On two wheels (Op twee wielen). Just turning the pedals around and some steering here and there. That's it. Is there a more beautiful way to explore the world? You determine the distance and speed. You feel, taste, smell, see and hear nature and culture around you.

My ideal way to spend a vacation. Gain physical strength en relax mentally. Maximum enjoyment.

The more serious travels by bicycle I started on my own in 2007. In 2010 Mr. Right came riding in my life literally and since then we travel together. On this website you'll find stories/reports, photos and maps of our route about these travels. It's meant to inspire others and to supply information.

About me...

20191013 120330My name is Gea van Veen. I am 47 years old and live with Remy on the coast of South-Holland. On this site you will find a record of one of my great passions: cycling holidays.

I would like to thank Ania Lentz-Michaelis and Remy Bosch for translating it specially for my Danish and Japanese friends, and all the other who prefer English.

For building this website, I would like to thank Joris Lange of Smart Joomla Websites. He was my navigator along the digital roads of a html landscape.
