HUM, last RTE in NL was on the Afsluitdijk a couple of years ago, around the same date.
It was minus 10C and had to stop fellow IBA (UK of course.. , you know that great nation of nautical blokes) ) riders to step on an icy pontoon for a picture, hence them falling in freezing water and me jumping after to save them .... remember Michieletje!
Had to fight with one snow storm on the way up and two on the return.
Arriving home my bike lights were like a Xmas tree because of the salt, snow and cold ( .. at some stage the German highway got closed down ...).
Had to change the electric torch on the bike!... but this allowed me to do an other 100'00km on the same bike, to my very grande surprise.
So all in all came in cheap in the end ...
Donated the bike, a couple of years ago to a friend who lost all his belongings in a divorce, as he had put them in his wife^s name for tax reasons.
Since the bike's average is only doing a 5'000km a year and I believe it stand presently at over a 270'000 km.
Perhaps this time I'll take my winter camping gear .... style Elephants, Marmottes, Pinguin et 1000 vaches, enzovoort ...

..... more on this in Andorra over some drinks ...

Remember John, there were two pontoons, one much larger and safer on which you are standing and one next to the restaurant much smaller, without a handrail!!

Sorry Philip - but you've got this all wrong. When I went down to take these pictures, I was on my own. You weren't down there with me at all. I had to set the camera up on the timer because no-one was with me.

You're remembering something that didn't happen !! Lol !!
