Cycling for the braves!

What a good weather we had in 2017, 2018 and 2019. No rain, no wind, just cycling through the countryside on our way to the windmills of Kinderdijk. But in 2020 it was raining cats and dogs.  Or Cows? Will we have have good weather during the 2020 SummerSchool cycling day!? This time no sneaky…

A brief but complicated Dutch history lesson
