I am affraid that offroad options in Suburbia (Randstad Amsterdam/The Hague/Haarlem etc) will be limited, but I leave it to the locals to give a final top tip... ;)

Trail riding meeting January

Hi guys and a merry christmas. I am fairly new to NL having come from Scotland. As yet I have not ridden with any of you but I hope that changes soon.

For most of you I guess you have been at home with your loved ones (bike) over the festive period, but for me I have been away in the big blue sea.
So when I get home in January I will be itching to get out on my bike and wondered if anybody would like to join me.
I propose riding a trail I have in the Brabant area, (or an other if someone has a suggestion) which is mainly flat easy tracks with the odd wooded section..
I will ride Wednesday 8th - Thursday 9th January and if some of you were up for it we could take an overnight in a local hotel to enjoy some good food and some even better beer.

In the mean time, enjoy the new year.
Ewan.

Gellukig nieuwjaar!

... Happy newyear to all Dutchies & Friends over there.

First day of the year 2014, beautiful weather. The Honda XL1000V Varadero still lies on the Optimate IV, but the good old 28yrs young XLV750RF lacks every form of modern technology and just does what it was meant to do... Turn the ignition, push the starter and RUN, with no additional help from outside; even if she was hibernating for the last 2 months... ;D

Had a wonderful 75km ride today on the Old Lady. I simply LOVE these rigged old Honda's!

Planning a bunch of trips for Spring/Summer if anyone is interested in Turkey, Scotland or Spain, let me know.

April 26 was mentioned. As I'll be watching the WSB at Assen on sunday, That would still be a fine date for me. And lots of campsites in Drente.

Edit: 2 weeks later and no reactions so I may plan something different that weekend. Anyone a later time in mind?

Meeting

Hi Wimj. Sorry for the late reply on this. I will be coming to Assen too but not until the Sunday morning as apparently I should be celebrating some special day on the Saturday. Something to do with a king I think.
Regarding a meeting I am still very interested to either meet in NL or possible ride together slightly further for some trail riding. Northern France for example.

Ok, just stumbled onto this thread. Dutchy from Goes, Zeeland. I have a Transalp and an XJ550 project. Not sure if I classify as an ADV rider, but I am trying to get a feel for what is on here. I have ridden the bike to London last year and hope to take it to the south of Germany at the end of this month.
