Ride from Huis ter Heide to station Driebergen-Zeist (Province of Utrecht)
This week’s ride takes us from one blog post location to another. Starting just south of Soesterberg Air Base, featured in last week’s post, on the provincial road N238 in the province of Utrecht. Officially that is in a town called Huis ter Heide. From there I cycle to the station Driebergen-Zeist, an intercity train station in the woods between those two towns, that will be the topic of an upcoming post. I started filming a bit later in the ride, just before the overpass of the motorway A28 from Utrecht to Amersfoort. I had used Driebergen-Zeist station, because on the day I filmed there were no trains running from ʼs-Hertogenbosch to Utrecht due to track works. My forced detour took me half way across the country via Nijmegen and Arnhem to Driebergen-Zeist, before I would reach Utrecht. Soesterberg Air Base is closer to Driebergen-Zeist than to Utrecht and so it made sense to leave the train there and get a rental bike. In addition, that station was completely reconstructed recently and this gave me the opportunity to film material for 3 posts in just one afternoon. With my current health issues, I have to be very careful with my energy and this is how I make sure I can still have posts for you with as little effort as possible. I alternate between posts with narrated videos and these rides with a photo post for the same reason: they require far less time for me to create. Thank you for your understanding and do enjoy this week’s ride and photo post.
