It is about a month ago since we had our last small cycling holiday.
On 14-15 october 2017 we had a very warm weekend in the Netherlands.
So we planned our small cycling trip. My son (9 years) would like to stay on a campsite with swimming pool.
After some searches we found “ Ardoer Camping Ackersate” to stay.
We planned our trip and try to get some quite roads and even some unpaved ones as well.
Due to the weather we had a great weekend and some nice cycling routes.
After a night sleep in the tent we did drove back to home.
The trip can be viewed below on the map.
And off course we had our camera with us to get some footage.
It is nice to have this weekend nearby our home.

Last year I saw a lot more fatbike.I always wondered how it would ride.
I can imagine in loose sand /snow it would be very handy. This week during our holiday in Switzerland I had the opportunity to try a fatbike.
I hired a fatbike at the local rental shop. This was just a basic fatbike with standard Shimano parts and a mechanical disc brake.
In the lower area the had the “winterwanderwege” ( winter trails) to bike on.
Most of the trails are good to ride. If you try to ride on a fresh snow part the big tyres are not floating anymore.

It was a nice experience. Perhaps next time a more excited trail.
