Plan ahead and prepare. Travel and camp on durable surfaces. Dispose of waste properly. Leave what you find. Minimize campfire impacts (be careful with fire). Respect wildlife. Be considerate of other visitors.

How far?
- Roughly 70km out, and a little less back. Ridden at a chill-group-pace, or any pace you like if you’re feeling less social!

What about sleeping?
- It's up to to you how comfortable your sleeping will be. Camping will be at a primitive camping site, whether you sleep on the bare ground, or in a tent big enough for a wedding party is your own choice. Water and a toilet should be available, but you know, plan ahead and stuff.
*Important* Camping is always Leave No Trace, but especially when with a big group. Be prepared. Be respectful. Plan ahead.

What type of bike?
- Anything you’d like! The ride doesn’t stray far from the pristine asphalt roads of Zuid Holland.
