On your bike, from Vlissingen to Domburg
Written by: Marleen Brekelmans
“Are you sure”, I asked Harm at his Fietsen bike shop in Vlissingen, “it’s a good idea to cycling in this weather?”. His bemused look said it all, why on Earth not? “Well, it’s quite a gale, and the Met office has issued a yellow alert”. He was kind enough not to laugh at me. It always blows a bit here, pet, his eyes said.
No excuses, then. Off we go, yellow code or not, on our bikes along the coast route from Vlissingen to Domburg. Strengthened in our decision by being on our sturdy e-bikes.
I’m Marleen Brekelmans, your blogger for a bike ride to remember.
You, your e-bike, the dunes ... and the villages
The Met office was, I must admit, not wrong. The wind as good as wafts us back down to our wheeled friends. We kid ourselves we’re just flying in the gale, hey, just lapping up the airs of the clouds, the waves, the dunes, for ever and ever.
Off-pedal moments around Domburg
Domburg looms, a mere 22,000 metres later, and thanks you effusively for coming. Park your trusty fiets (bike) and hit, like hit, one of Zeeland’s nicest resorts around.
