Flevopolder Dyke

Lelystad to Hilversum

(Above picture from today’s ride, 8 miles or 13 Km to the next turning)

I did visit this area last year (I Lived There), but I’m on a very different route this year and there’s bound to be some overlap.

Now we are getting a mini and not too extreme heatwave, though probably better described as some warmer weather after my earlier 40℃ days in France. But there are “orange” warnings out. And they are forecasting 38℃ for tomorrow.

So further south along the outskirts of the Flevopolder, along the Markermeer shore down to Almere (good place is Almere but I didn’t stop as it’s far to close to last night at Lelystad).

Tonight just south of Hilversum (I used to live in the western side).

Legs still tired but a good ride with varied scenery. Rode down from Lelystad to Almere on the Flevopolder dyke beside the Markermeer. Then over the bridge and inland and around Hilversum (avoiding the built-up areas).

Lelystad to Hilversum

Today 44 miles miles (70 Km).
