The Oliebollentocht event was cancelled for 2 years in a row and after this period of time it finally took place again in Reuver, Netherlands and the weather was awesome. Again, this was a great opportunity for the owners of various velomobile models from all around western Europe to meet, talk, admire each other rides and then ride together on a 67 km tour through the surrounding countrysides. This was a beautiful event with a lot of colors.

There are velomobiles here from all Europe, Sweden, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands.

Yeah, lots of bikes here, 150 people signed up, I'm not sure how many people actually showed up, but yeah it looks great. So we're going to go out for a ride together for about 67 kilometers, about 45 miles something like that.
All right, gotta get back to the bike, I guess that means we're getting ready to go, so ..."
