previous events & test runs
These are the test runs and attempts:
||did a test run (it was actually to receive the prize of a bet which I won: Achel Trappist № 5) and found out that the comfort limit of an untrained person will be about 60km a day, so best practice is to keep the complete tour under this amount.
||Herkenbosch to Heerlen; Great success! (xopr guesses)
||Da Syntax Xopr
||did the actual trip from Heerlen to Weert
||After a couple of beers (from all three countries we cycled through earlier that day) in Weert Da Syntax continued his journey Weert-Herkenbosch. This comes to a total of +/- 80km that day. So he guess it should be possible for a untrained person to cycle 80km in a day (maybe beer functions as a good motivator).
||repeated his Achelse kluis tradition.
||Went to Achel and Valkenswaard again without any hassle in an estimated 5 hours. Good position of the saddle is key.
||(cancelled) Pinknick edition. Trip was postponed due to weather conditions (13°C, 3-4bft NW, 65% @ 1.5mm, 40% sun)
||Went to Achel again to drink some trappist, and made the trip within 4 hours. Had to shorten the route due to unforeseen circumstances.
||Da Syntax Xopr
||Finally, finished Hackers on a Bike!
