O.K. So now you want windmills… well, we’ve definitely got windmills!

Today’s ride was only about 38 kilometres bit what it lacked in distance it more than made up for in WINDMILLS!

Over two-dozen of them lined the cycle paths as we dropped down below sea level between Schoonhoven and Rotterdam. Most have been lovingly restored and a few were even turning powerfully in the stiff breeze.

They are a mightily impressive sight, especially when you have as beautiful a day as we enjoyed today. The stretch along the canal, as Rotterdam appeared upon the horizon, is rightfully considered an iconic Dutch landscape. Absolutely brilliant!
