Random Evening Bike Ride Around Eindhoven, Netherlands

The weather in the Netherlands has been quite nice lately, so Hayley and I decided to go out for a spontaneous bike ride around where we live in a summer evening. We simply looked at the local map and decided to go somewhere random.

And it was a surprise to us. We came across all sorts of interesting farms and farm shops. Although they were all closed, we will visit them at some point in the future. Let’s just say, I was imagining the sizzling sounds of the barbeque sausages and burgers throughout the bike ride! Apart from the interesting farms, we also came across some interesting villages lined with old cobbled streets.

Yes, black and white striped animals are really cows! I’m not sure what breed they are. Prehaps some kind of rare breed? There is a farm shop down the lane. Maybe we can find some interesting cheese or beef?

Moo… give me food.

Hayley and I were cycling on a path along the river.

We cycled passed a strawberry farm, and it smelled delicious. Not far down the road, there was a small village where people sold their local fresh products outside their own home. We bought some green beans home for dinner.

This is a little village that we cycled through. Many of the old farm houses or the old blacksmith shops were turned into homes. Some people were selling fruits and vegs outside their homes.

Look at those horses, they were chilling out in the evening sun.

A typical Dutch canal with a swinging bridge. It opens up when a barge wants to sail passed that point.

Yey! Almost home!

  2. Looks lovely. Sometimes I forget about cool areas within walking distance. For me that’s the beach, though!
