|Wim Blonk's Bicycling Tour 2005|
Every summer since 1999 I undertake a trans-European bicycling tour. In the first year I biked from Brussels to Santiago de Compostela in the north-west of Spain (2.349 km); in 2000 to Rome and Athens (2.934 km); in 2001 to Gibraltar and Seville (3.073 km); in 2002 to Vienna, Budapest via Ljubljana, Strasbourg and Luxemburg back to Brussels ( 3.870 km) and in 2003 the Hundred Cols Tour in France (4.599 km).
This year it will be the sixth time that I am leaving
As already indicated in the letter to my sponsors (see below), I like biking because apart from the physical exertion it allows to relax the spirit and to get away from the daily stress.

It also allows meeting interesting people, specifically when you bike solo as I am doing.
However, there is another reason why I like biking. It gives me the chance to raise funds by way of a sponsor action for the social projects I like to support. The proceeds of this year’s sponsor action will be used to support Close the
Visitors of my website are kindly requested not to forget to sponsor my trip.
