Not on Garmin GPS:

Appeldorn to Eersel (140km)

The next few days involved much cycling, sunshine and worry whether I was making enough progress towards Brussels. I eventually made it over the border to Holland on the morning of Sunday 19th June, legs weary and bottom getting progressively sorer. I was put to shame by a national cycle race that stopped the traffic as I passed through Helmond (I don’t think anyone would have mistaken me for one of the contenders) and I limped on to Eindhoven where I eventually gave up navigating by instinct and bought an overpriced map of Belgium/ Holland at a petrol station before camping right on the border with Belgium in a wonderful bit of tranquil pine forest near the small town of Eersel.
