This picture is in Bratislava, Slovakia, part of a 7-day cycle & boat trip from Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary, along the Danube River.

Beautiful countryside.  I highly recommend it.

 

Where in the world are Diane Trimming with Marg Dunphy?  Holland

Submitted by Diane Trimming with these comments:
The shirts did travel from Bruges, Belgium, to Amsterdam. It was quite cold so they were often covered up but they did attract some attention when we were on the boat or indoors for breaks.
Marg and I had to remove several layers to have this shot taken in Holland.  

Submit your photos to show travel destinations where your Old Spokes Club cycling shirt has stood out in the crowd!  

Does this remind you of 'Where's Waldo' - Old Spokes style??

ABOUT THE OLD SPOKES CYCLING CLUB:

We offer non-competitive rides for pleasure and socializing while exploring our city and environs.

  • A variety of rides are offered each week from April to October.
  • Cyclists are responsible for getting to variable start locations.
  • Annual registration with nominal fee required.

We have 3 levels of cycling so all can choose the level that suits their ability:

  • Level 1 – Cycle a minimum of 18 km on Tuesdays at a slower pace with fewer hills and more water breaks. Shorter rides of 10 km are available the first three weeks of the season for those of us wishing some preparation.
  • Level 2 – Cycle a minimum of 30 km on Tuesdays and Thursdays at a moderate pace with some hills and breaks as needed.
  • Level 3 – Cycle in smaller groups a minimum of 35 km on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at a somewhat faster pace on routes that may include hills. We regroup and stop for breaks as needed.
  • All Levels - Pedal assist E-Bikes are welcome. Watch for ride postings on days of the week beyond those designated.
