Day Five Ride to the Netherlands Complete

I finished the final 35 miles to arrive in The Netherlands.

Here are the quick statistics:

Total Travel Distance 35 Miles
Total Travel Time 3.25 Hours
Total Pedal Time 4 Hours
Killer Uphills 0
Killer Downhills 1*

* Hill was so good that I missed my turn and had about a mile corrective detour.

I am physically fatigued, however the biggest issues are my stiff fingers from holding the handle bars. Typing this is extremely problematic. I am glad there is automatic spell check. I guess I will have to change out glove brands.

It was nice to to see my wife once I got to the Hotel.

Overall, I am glad I did it. I had been wanting to do something big for a while. And I was not sure what I was waiting on, so I just went and completed the ride.

Not sure what is next for trips: I am thinking something by foot in October. Any Suggestions?

For the immediate future:
1. Move into new house tomorrow
2. Unpack when our belongings arrive (mid August?)
3. Write up my lessons learned on the tour and come up with next steps.
