This was a quick snap on a bridge overlooking a motorway somewhere in Holland
This was a photo taken straight from my bicycle after seizing an opportunity for a break disguised as a photo-opportunity!
when I am cycletouring in Western Europe, I always struggle because of the culture of cycle lanes….I always get hopelessly lost on cyclelanes because they stray away from the road network…and cyclists are not allowed on the roads where there are alternative cyclelanes…and car drivers will express their displeasure at seeing a cyclist on the road.
So, if you ever see someone on a heavily laden bicycle, with a camera, scratching his head….it might be me! I have never met anyone who has the same problem so I am assuming it must just be me. Local maps of course would resolve the problem, but they are really expensive and run out after a relatively short distance, and I like changing my mind. But I eventually get where I am going too…
