The ride from @patagoniaeurope in Amsterdam to the climate conference in Bonn on friday was a little harder than anticipated.
Wet roads, colder temperatures than expected and occasional showers. Single tracks. Gravel sections through forests. Glimmering tarmac with puddles, spraying the cyclists in your path behind you. Every half an hour one of us had a flat tyre.
That may sound gruesome but in truth we were just out and about with a group of twelve. Challenging eachother and laughing. Second breakfast consisted of a pancake feast and pre-dinner of cake with a custom logo.
After 17 hours, 305k and 15 flat tyres we reached Bonn. Our twelve faces looked a little worned out, but we were still smiling. Still better than a day at the office. The best news was that we reached our crowdfunding goal for @fossielvrijnl (and the pizza and beers were already waiting for us!🤘) #BonnOrBust #arewelive #fossilfree
