While the winter has not been cold enough to have the famous traditional ice skating tour "Elfstedentocht"in Friesland, one can of course cycle the 11 Cities in winter. The hard wind, continuous rain and temperature close to freezing made it very hard on the road cyclists. Many started suffering from hypothermia. The organisation decided that the tour had to be cancelled. Only 400 out of 1000 riders made the complete ride. The velomobile riders were clearly in the advantage, not just because of the streamline of their vehicles but also because they had no problems with the cold rain and hard wind. Fastest overall and velomobile rider was Ymte Sybrandy with a "world record" 200km in 6.35h. Me and Ludwig came in 8th I believe. `When this video stops we were still second after Ymte but Ludwig, who had no GPS, suffered from cramp in both legs and we were forced to slow down considerably. Consequently we were overtaken. Well, it wasn't a race anyway and you must stand by your friends when they are in trouble.
