On the day of the Elite Men’s Road World Championships in Ponferrada, Spain we honored Joop Zoetemelk, our 1985 Dutch rainbow winner in Giavera del Montello, Italy. During our Sunday morning ride we rode by Rijpwetering -Zoetemelk’s town of birth- and took a  selfie shot at a street named after him with our full 19 rider crew.
We rode in championship style. Easy in the beginning and slowly turning on the heat thereafter. Yvo was today’s captain and with fixie chick Nathalie -this girl can ride!- we had another power woman in the group. Between Nathalie and Marianne they took home all the Strava silverware. Our Zoetemelk photo did not help the Dutch riders; they were pretty much invisible in today’s race. Michał Kwiatkowski made a decisive jump near the end and solo windjammed the last few k’s to the finish in grand style, bringing the rainbow jersey to Poland. Well deserved.

RIH resurrected. Master frame builder Wim van der Kaaij has been building RIH bikes since 1948. He has been doing that for both world champions as well as demanding Sunday morning warriors. The new and improved RIH Sport Amsterdam has settled in Amsterdam Noord where they started building high-end customized bikes again. To celebrate this happy news they organized a RIH ride, the Ronde van RIH. The 110k route was a tribute to RIH’s much heralded past which produced a staggering 63 world champions.
We rode by Velsen and the Bergweg where Ingrid Haringa, five times track world champion, logged her miles. We rumbled over Het Kopje where Gerrie Knetemann and the infamous Molenploeg tried to hurt each other. We rolled through the dunes along the coast, the playing fields of track legend and TI-Raleigh sport director Peter Post. And lastly we took the tailwind along the Ringvaart and remembered Gerit Schulte, one of post World War II cycling greats. All world champions, all RIH riders.
Today’s group of 50 riders was an eclectic bunch; all age groups, all fitness levels and on all sorts of bikes. We rode well together with the Windjammers on point for the 110k route. We managed to stay together until the very end where the versatile Lorenzo served a homemade pasta and red wine. It was a good Sunday. Roll on, RIH brothers.
