Day One Arnhem Bike Tour

Today was my first day with the fifth graders out of AFNORTH ES. There was about a two hour drive up to the Youth Hostel. The Youth Hostel itself is one of the nicer I have stayed in.

The first day we did a walking tour of an open air museum. It has a bunch of historic buildings, equipment and artifacts depicting life in the Netherlands. All of the buildings are original having been pulled from across the Netherlands. The museum had an active – meaning made on site, bakery, papermill, weaver, blacksmith, shipwright, farmers (all sorts), trains (historic street cars circa 1910). I thought it was a great experience.

I got some good photos of windmills.

I spoke with several of the students and could not find from them a downside to the tour.

In the evening the children and adults were sized for bicycles.

I was quite surprised when I found out I would be pedaling a one speed for 50 KM tomorrow morning. The bike has a coaster brake only, no toe clips/cleats…. I am not sure I have been on a steel monster like this in 20 years. It will be an interesting ride. Up side I have 8 hours to do the ride.

that is all for now.
