In the gold mountains

For those who think that the Netherlands is flat, today's tour was definite proof that this is not the case.  We did over 500 meters climbing over a distance of 55km. It is not that the Goudsberg ('golden hill') is that big (it goes up to a massive 50 m above sea level), but the cleverly-chosen route took us up and down its steep slippery sides time after time (see below). And they were so steep and (especially) slippery that on quite a few a few of the ascents most people had to get off and push. There were a lot of people taking part as well, we had to queue for ten minutes to sign in at the begining. As usual the organisation and sign posting was perfect.
