Finding Norma Lou, the bike group gathered one by one until we were all there and the tour leaders as well. Boarding the tour bus, we took a tour of Leiden for some historical perspective. Near the city center is a square of townhomes where the Pilgrims lived and worked and made their plans to head off to the new world, via England. It's a spiritual thing to reach back four hundred years and touch the ground where the essence of liberties were fomented. Next a tour of an ancient windmill then off to our hotel, De Witte Raaf, in Noordwijk.
A short rest and then our first bike ride of our tour. The weather had been unseasonably cool and being the southern boy that I am, I wasn't prepared. Back to the hotel, a hot shower, a premium feast and a good nights sleep.
