Dinner - tbd

Day 3

Ride home. Due to the little windy roads the average speed will only be around 50km/h, so the net

riding time for 300km is 6 hours plus. With breaks expected riding time is 7,5 hours. I plan to start at

09:30.

Remark: We will go highways at 120 km/h and very little roads in cruising mode. You should be an

experienced and safe rider.
