Arrival in Utrecht
Start cycling from the hart of Holland and travel south, you'll reach "Glass town Leerdam, a meeting place where glassblowers from many countries demonstrate their craft. Further on, you´ll come across two more Dutch Water Line fortresses: Asperen and Vuren. Before you'll reach Gorinchem you can cross the River Waal by ferry boat and you will reach infamous and interesting Loevesteijn Castle. The nearby fortified town of Woudrichem is also well worth a visit.
Gorinchems walled town centre has a long, turbulent history and over two hundred monuments to remember it by. It used to be big in fishery, markets and trade, but was often plagued by floods and conquerors (the town was the gateway to Holland). Gorinchem is pronounced gorcum, by the way. Today you will cycle back up north to the big city of Utrecht. In the heart of the old inner city lies the peaceful Oude Gracht (= Old Canal). Its characteristic quaysides are unique to Utrecht. Nowadays they are the pleasant setting for waterside cafes. Dont miss the pretty Museum Quarter. Utrecht is also great for shopping, especially on the quieter shopping streets.

....Wij hebben een heel leuke fietsvakantie gehad, mede dankzij het prachtige weer. Prima hotels en eten was ook goed. Hotel Gorinchem lag buiten centrum, niet erg maar je kunt niet even de mooie oude stad in lopen. Wel voldoende plaatsen onderweg om iets te gebruiken....
