After I was able to rest a little on the little “Austerlitz round”, the last tour was on the agenda today. On this lap, too, I finally decided to travel by car, which in the end turned out to be a stroke of luck. Two spokes on the rear wheel of my comrade-in-arms thought they had to refuse their service shortly before the finish line.This time the start and end point was Lelystad to be able to cross one of the two Dutch North Sea dams. The joy of driving up the dam, that the wind is coming from behind, evaporated when we were finally on the dam after a 90 degree turn. Now the wind was really coming from the front.There is no turning back and as later the tour turned out the right decision. Here, too, special thanks go to my locomotive, who did most of the management work.At the end of the dam we leave Enkhuizen on the right and continue following the coastline towards Amsterdam. Now we finally had a tailwind and we were able to cover a lot of kilometers with minimal effort.Even by my standards, we arrived in Amsterdam very relaxed and again a surprise, the ferry is free. Arrived on the other bank, we go to the final destination of the Def * Fahrrad * q at the Q-dance headquarters, which is a little outside of Amsterdam.When we arrive, we hear music from an open door. And indeed the studio door was open for ventilation and the live broadcast from DQ.1@Home was not exactly booming out of it. However, we could only catch a glimpse for a short time until a young lady started us. I would have liked to have taken a photo of the studio but it was forbidden. Only one thing, the studios are smaller than you might think. After exchanging a few words, we continued downtown to do some side-viewing. Then we went home.The round led us again via Almere, only this time we went along the dam to Lelystad. This ended with fun. Now it was time to bite because the wind came straight from the front again and had really picked up. Thanks to my “tractor”, behind which I was able to hide more and more, the last few kilometers were over at some point.

On the third day of Def * Fahrrad * qon, the legs from the previous day were still a bit worn. However, it shouldn't be a wasted day. We decided to do a "little lap". We have chosen the pyramid of Austerlitz as our destination. Of course, this location is also related to Defqon.1. Against the backdrop of the pyramid, Dr. Peacock held his concert last year at DQ.1@Home. That is why we come full circle here.I decided to get to the lap not by bike but by car, in contrast to my colleague who of course made the trip by bike.The start and end point was Amersfoort. It went to Austerlitz and the pyramid was already reached via a short gravel path. After we had looked around, we went back to sightseeing and a little refreshment. Thus a stress-free bridge day, because the "long" edge should still follow.

For me the first highlight of the Def * Fahrrad * qon.Our first point of arrival: at Biddinghuizen the area where the Defqon.1 Festival is held every year. It wasn't as quiet as I imagined, as the Walibi amusement park had opened its doors.
Our round then took us on via Kampen => Zwolle => Hattern => through an extensive heather area back to Harderwijk.
It is remarkable what good condition even the bike paths were in such a large forest area. Easy to ride on with a racing bike without raised roots or similar bumps, as you know them from the Elberadweg.Holland and bicycle that just fits.

Def * bike * qon day 1
So, it’s Defqon.1 weekend, for me it’s finally going to start today. This year I didn't want to cancel the hotel again. So I thought about what to do if this summer's primary event is postponed again.
I really wanted to do something for the hotel and gas power industry, to support you during this time. Ergo, canceling was out of the question this time.
If not partying, why not spend this time cycling in the Netherlands? And if so, why not pay a visit to the Holy Ground of Defqon.1 and the Q-Dance headquarters in Amsterdam? Which would definitely be a must on such a tour.
Told this to a real bicycle enthusiast and the * Fahrradqon * was born. Thanks to you @Andreas Glöckner for accompanying me. It's nice to have found an experienced colleague with whom you can share the slipstream. Even if in all likelihood you will be the locomotive for many kilometers.
For a long time even this venture was on the knife edge. But thanks to falling incidences, entry was possible without restrictions.On the first day you have to strap your bikes to your car and comfortably drive the 650km to the hotel in Harderwijk.When we arrived at our destination, the weather was so beautiful that we definitely wanted to get back on our bikes. It started freely without much planning. Always along an arm of the North Sea on very well-developed cycle paths. On the way home it went through endless landscapes, on bike paths that just ran straight for tens of kilometers. Past ponds with many gray geese and meadows with just as many sheep. At times nobody was to be seen far and wide. So it went into the sunset. Simply fantastic.
