One of my favorite routes, with, yeah, 2 tunnels in it.|
The beautiful old Maastunnel and the newer Beneluxtunnel. Both are an event, the Maastunnel with its long wooden escalators and the all concrete very steep Beneluxtunnel. It has a speed limit of 30 kmh. ? Yes, always ;)
Both specially made for bikes which is in fact impressive.
Admiring the sunset near the entrance to tunnel 1 (depending on the direction...), the Beneluxtunnel.
A small car emerged from a gate nearby. In it was a man who blocked the elevator and escalator. Maintenance. Tunnel closed.
Had I not been admiring the sunset, this would have been a different story. OK no problem, sometimes the unexpected can lead to interesting things.
Decided to make a loop back home to get my kms and came to this obscure bike path
next to a highway. (A4 near junction Vlaardingen-Oost)
It was getting dark but this path became very dark very quickly.
And there was light at the end of the tunnel.
Ah well at least some kind of tunnel...
