In this episode of Bike Tour Adventures, I have the change to catch up with Arie Hugerbrugge and see how things have been going on with him since we first spoke in Episode 032.  A lot has happened, or, more correctly, a lot has happened since Arie and I last spoke. With all the changes to his tour that we first talked about, Arie has had to continually adapt his tour to the changing circumstances that Covid-19 has forced upon us this past year. Because of these changing circumstances, we weren’t able to meet up while cycling, as Arie had already modified and changed his route. Since we weren’t able to catch up in person, we figured we may as well make a podcast out of it.

Cheers Arie. Keep on pedalling.
