Day of departure: join us for a wave-off ride

The departure date is set: Saturday 30 April is the day team Oufti will hit the road. Please join us for a relaxed morning coffee from 10.00am at Rapha Cycle Club Amsterdam, Wolvenstraat 10 in Amsterdam. Coffee and cake are graciously provided by Rapha in support of our big trip.

April-30-Calendar_Blog_0426123We will leave at 11.00am to cycle to Tokyo and we would really really (really!) like it if you could join us for the first modest 45km leg of this trip, from Amsterdam to Utrecht. We will be going at a slow pace, being heavily packed and all, so this is a ride that is open to all kinds of cyclists, and not just the experienced racers.

We’re getting slightly nervous as we’re getting closer to the leaving date. The Big One is becoming more of a reality than an abstraction, and we are becoming acutely aware of what a huge project it is we have taken on. We love seeing as much of our friends and family as we possibly can before we leave, and a group ride to Utrecht would be a sweet start of this crazy leap into the unknown.

  1. Wish I could join you for the first 45 km but being in northern Sweden it will be hard to arrange.
    Your route looks great and I dare to promise that you will have a great adventure. Looking forward to following you on the blog.

    1. Hi Joakim, thanks! Your blog has been a (budget 😉 inspiration to us as well! Enjoy the Swedish summer.

  2. Groetjes Vera & Cyril
    May tail winds & fair weather be with you!
    Lecker veer, sterk beenen & achter winds! (?)
