Tour d’Afrique at BikeMotion Benelux 2010
Dirk Van Asselt's book about his experiences on Vuelta Sudamericana 2009 – will be presented to Dutch cycling legend, Steven Rooks, at the Tour d'Afrique booth at Bikemotion.
Our intrepid leader, Henry Gold, is off to the Netherlands today to spread the news of Tour d’Afrique’s nine bicycle adventures in 2011 to the ‘Dutchies’.
First stop will be an Info Evening and screening of the Tour d’Afrique film ‘Where Are You Go’, in Leusden – kindly hosted by TDA veteran Arthur Rijk. If you’re in the area and would like to meet Henry and see the film, you can contact Arthur on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next up is the BikeMotion Expo in Utrecht, where Henry and Dirk van Asselt (one of the participants of the 2009 Vuelta Sudamericana) will manage the booth. To add to the excitement, Dirk will be promoting his hot-off-the-press book “Volg je Hart _ 12.000 kilometer door Zuid-Amerika’’ and will present his first signed copy to legendary Dutch cyclist, Steven Rooks, at the Tour d'Afrique booth.
