Day 13 Tandem Rhine Tour Vienen to Rotterdam

Another scorching day and a shorter run into Rotterdam, only about 40 miles today.

We weave our way along canals and houses one of which is built on the site of a moated fort. To Nieuwpoort for a break.

We carried on towards Rotterdam to see nesting boxes for ducks and back to the river at Kinderdijk where there is the largest concentration of windmills in Holland.

The ride into Rotterdam was really good, better than all the cities we have encountered so far.

We are booked into the 5 Star Marriott with its tired and dated rooms. £208 is a rip off but it was the only hotel we could find when tired that would lock our bike away. Rotterdam is renowned for bike theft, it is worth researching hotels that can store them for you.
