Does not take away the fact that you have to charge your mobile phone every now and then, you understand that too.



Can I go with my bag on the go

No, that is NOT possible, during G-M 2017 this was not the case. The bags were then in the coach bus.

 

Advice: take the much needed with you in your skate shirt, this has 3 bags.



What then, if I have bad luck on the road

The organization has made an agreement with Stouwdam Wezep that material will be included on the route of the Geuzentocht 2020 Harlingen Vlissingen.

 

Such as tools and bearings, for example.

On the route where no cars may be allowed, a helmet has been arranged for first aiders.

This way they can go on the back of the bike during the Geuzentocht 2020.



Are there pictures and films made

We are also there, Lammert Lemmen and Hans Huizing are the photographers on the way to points to take pictures, Raoul Sellink and Richard van Herwijnen are also back with them they are on the go with a Drone so that from the air also movies and photos are taken.

 

Also a large number of participants in the peloton have already indicated that they also want to make photos and films of the total event.

PAY ATTENTION! But not during the skating, think about the accidents that may result.

 

Another important point: take enough distance in the peloton and do not push each other!

The organization has had telephone and personal contact with associations and entrepreneurs, during the 1st route exploration. Are you immediately received with open arms! Welcome organization Geuzentocht 2020, we also go for your ALS Foundation!
