ROUTE 
Changed due to construction!

The start and finish is in the village of Amerongen, located at the Utrechtse Heuvelrug at the famous cycling cafe De Proloog. The route takes us first along the rivers Neder-Rijn and the Waal to the historic cities of Nijmegen and Arnhem (known from the film “A Bridge Too Far” about the Operation Market Garden). Next you leave the beautiful river landscape and the historic cities behind and the route takes you through the National Park Veluwezoom. The National Park is known for its endless heath fields, imposing country estates and of course one of the most famous hills in the Netherlands, the Posbank.

You will pass through the heart of Enschede and along the Dolmens in the province of Drenthe, prehistoric burial chambers where the cycle route passes by. After which the route leads you through the city of Groningen.

The wind starts to get stronger and you get closer to one of the icons of the Dutch flood defense, the Afsluitdijk. A dam that closes off the Waddenzee from the IJsselmeer which is 32 kilometers long.

The route takes you south along the Dutch coast. Beautiful beaches and dunes with little to no buildings, towards the port of Rotterdam, the largest port in Europe. First you will cycle through the city of Rotterdam and across the Erasmus bridge towards the Maasvlakte.

The route takes you further south over the Delta Park Neeltje Jans, which is part of the Dutch flood defense, in the direction of Vlissingen. A historic city due to its strategic location. In the Eighty Years’ War between the Netherlands and Spain, the city was in Spanish hands for a while.

You cycle along the Belgian border towards the hills in the province of Limburg. Where you hit one of the iconic Dutch hills, the Keutenberg with a maximum gradient of 16%.

If you have conquered the hills you cycle back through the beautiful river landscape of the Maas towards Nijmegen. Via the southern side of the rivers over the dikes you will finish at the cafe De Proloog.

Biography:

I started cycling when I was 12 years old, as training for speedskating. The first years I cycled with my skating club or my family. A few years later I joined a cycling club for 2 years and tried some road races. Soon I found out that this was not really something for me, as I didn't like the chaos of riding in a peloton. I continued with cycling with friends, especially with my best friend Wendy. Together we rode a lot of cyclo's in the Netherlands. In 2016 we had our biggest cycling adventure so far, cycling up the Mont Ventoux 3 times on 1 day with 'Klimmen tegen MS'.

After following the Transcontinal race in 2016 we both got interested in bikepacking. A lot of dotwachting followed and this year we made our first small bikepacking trips! I made a 4 day trip in the Netherlands and Belgium and together we cycled coast 2 coast in England. I also cycled my first BRM, 200km. Now we're ready for our first race! I'm really looking forward to this new challenge! It will be an awesome adventure!

After cycling around Nijmegen and Amsterdam for years and riding some cyclo's every year, I came across the Transcontinental race in 2016.
That looked so awesome, I wanted to take part in it. I rode TCRno5 in 2017 and managed to finish it. Training for it got me into the longer rides, BRM 300, 400, 600 and 1200 km.
For RATN I want to step up my bivvy-skills and look forward to seeing new parts of my home-country.

I live with my partner in Delft and started biking again somewhere in 2016/2017.
Biking is something out of my past, started racing at my 16th, quit racing later on and switched to bikepacking around Europe.
For lots of reasons I stopped biking the long rides, started karate,swimming, running and did some quarter and half triathlons
Somewhere in my end twenties I stopped this all, but …….. As said started a couple of years ago with my first love: Biking.
Looking forward now for participating the RATN!

As a cyclist I started as a mountain biker. This resulted in marathon mountain biking which made me participate a lot of events througout Europe like the Transalp for example. The best one was the TransBelgium mtb in 2012 were I discovered the world of bikepacking/ultra riding and also the adventure feel of being out on the road all day. So now I'm back hoping to get that feeling again!

Hello everybody! I’m a grandmother from two lovely kids Fay and Duuk, mother from 2 grownup kids and also partner from a lovely man. For living I've a fulltime job as a healthylifestylecoach and Bootcampinstructor. In My free time I started cycling in June 2016. In the beginning I was a little bit scared but also like it to discover my own country.. 99% off my rides are solorides. Cycling is for me a feeling to be free, some kind off me time, enjoy the lovely view and nature, totally relaxing while I'm cycling. But also that feeling to be strong and sometimes very small in this great World when there is a lot off wind. This challenge is for me to know my self better when I've to do every thing alone. This is also my first bikepacking adventure and an extreme challenge before I became 50. I really appriciated when you encourage me on my challenge. For all the other riders I hope that you have a nice challenge at the RATN even when it gets tough.

Biography:

My cycling adventure started on June 3, 2017. On that date, my brother and his daughter started the Trans Am Bike Race. He loaned me a bike and I agreed to ride it every day while they were on course. The 2 km on day one was brutal but with every day my distance increased, I got stronger and to my delight I started to lose weight.
This marked the beginning of an active decision to exercise regularly, improve my dietary choices and eating habits, and a commitment to healthy living. I dropped from 123 kg (270 lb) and a waist of 112 cm (45 in) to 89 kg (196 lb) and a waist of 92 cm (36 in). I feel great.
A friend watching my progress suggested I might join the Race Denmark Bike Race. Of the 20 registered riders, 16 started and 13 days, 10 hours and 8 minutes later, I was the last competitor to cross the finish line and ended up in 7th. place.
The Race Around the Netherlands has a shorter time line and I plan to be among the finishers. It will be a challenge but one I look forward to with excitement and enthusiasm.

Biography:

As an experienced ultrarunner and long distance hiker I'm more of a pedestrian than a cyclist. Most of my life my bikes were used to take me to the next icecream shop, not for serious riding.
In 2018 I decided to try something new. With only a few shorter rides under my belt I went all the way from Bonn/ Germany across the Alps down to Nice/ France in completely selfsupported bikepacker style. With a riding time of 54 hours I thought "Well, that was fun! What's next?".
The RaTN will be my first official bike race. Due to my background as an adventurer I'm not much of a racer. But that doesn't mean I'm not used to kick myself to go long and fast.

I have been a dot-watcher for many years, vicariously experiencing endurance racing through other people's experiences on TCR, TransAm, and other racers. In 2018 I decided that it is finally time for my own adventure, and to see if I can ride my bike for a week!

Before I started training, my longest ever ride was 160km. Training for this race has made me push this number higher and higher, and it has also introduced me to new roads and friends via audax and long-distance brevet events. Looking forward to meeting all the other racers of ratn2019!

Biography:

My name is Wendy, I am from The Netherlands. I got my first roadbike when I was 7 years old. I cycled a lot with my dad and my brother. The last 6 years after I learned to walk again and an ankle operation I became more active in cycling. I started to ride longer distances and made a lot of cycling friends. Together with Aukje I started to get more interest in bikepacking and endurance racing.

Last summer I rode my bike to the Mosel River, 700km in 6 days. This was my first step into bikepacking and I had heaps of fun. End of September I rode coast2coast with Aukje. 200km headwinds, hopefully that will be a bit better when we race in May. The Race Around The Netherlands will be my first race and a new big challenge for me. My biggest challenge so far was becoming Cinglé du Ventoux for Klimmen tegen MS.

The 2nd day of the race will be my Birthday :)
