Tour de Utrecht

Today the ‘Grand Depart‘ of the Tour de France took place in Utrecht. On one of the hottest days in the Netherlands ever, the cyclists tour through the beautiful old city centre. It is not unique in Utrecht to have so many cyclists. Actually it is something you see every day. But today they are all wearing helmets, lean forward and wear sporty clothes.

With a David Attenborough type of nature film, BLIK filmcommunicatie shows us the specimen of Utrecht cyclists.

Utrecht is a beautiful old city just half an hour by train from Amsterdam. It is definitely worth a visit when you’re in the Netherlands!

The conversation

conversation2 by aude

Some people are gifted in the art of conversation. And they excel in it. Nothing would hinder them, not even a trip through the city. When you get them started, you can’t get them stop it. They are great company, unless they are too tall, they could be an obstacle to your driving capacity!
