Today is the last riding day of our big bike adventure. Tonight we will be in a studio apartment near the center of Haarlem for 6 days while we take care of getting the bikes back to the US or at least to the other side of the pond.
Today we rode our bikes up to Beverwijk, where our good friend Ernst van Zijl at Rijwielhandel van Tunen bike shop was ready for us. He packed up our bikes in their original boxes, which he had stored in his loft for us while we were traveling.
We spent a restful couple of days in our small charming house in Haarlem. Our house is very tiny with a minitaure coutryard out back, complete with occasional chickens, a stairway meant for midgits with size 4 feet, and a real Dutch door.
