On Two Wheels
On 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.
Have fun reading!
