105 Km on Skates

Saturday, 8-August-2009 - Oirschot, NL/Postel, BE - It was the farthest I ever skated in one day. Seventeen skaters and three moped riders made the trip from Oirschot to the Postel Abby in Belgium, and back--105 km! We had perfect weather, smooth routes through wooded areas. We departed at 0930 and returned at 1900. The more experienced and stronger skaters kept a good eye on the first-timers. Everyone made it back in good health. Fun-on-wheels skater Pieter Smits was our host and guide. He had a swimming pool and a barbecue waiting for us when got back. It was a truly a day to remember.
