Bicycle ride to Sluis, NetherlandsThe map indicated that the Netherlands wasn't far away and it seemed that it would be a nice ride to go out to the closest town and then return. There was a bike path along the canal and so I hired a bike for the day to do a bit of exploring on two wheels. Real brakes on this bike rather than the death trap from Utö.
As I approached Sluis I got off the bike path and onto the main road, which had a cycle lane, and took some photos of the border. In Sluis the wildlife wanted to tell me off for some reason, perhaps for staying in Belgium rather than the Netherlands :-) I had a late lunch on the way back to Brugge at a place recommended to me by the owners of the hotel. Very nice quiche, tart and good coffee.
