BAC Bike and Barge - Netherlands 2014

April 23 - Fourth Riding Day - Gouda - Leiden

Riding out of Gouda felt like being in a nature preserve. We saw lots of water birds and people enjoying the fresh air and sunshine including four men in a shell who had to duck down when passing under bridges. The highlight of the ride was passing through several woody plant and perennial nurseries near Boskoop.


When we reached Leiden we rode to the De Volk Windmill which is now a museum. We spent time there to tour the windmill which gave us an idea of what life was like while living in one of these monsters.

After we cleaned up back in port, we went on a walking tour of Leiden led by Sietse. Dinner was on our own tonight. We ate at a small restaurant in the town center with three other couples.
