110.000 Kms by Bicycle in 6 Years

In 1997 Herb van Drongelen went on a daring adventure. He took his bike down the narrow stairs of his Amsterdam home and started 6 years of cycling around the World.

Earlier today we went to De Cantine in Amsterdam to see his exhibition. Just an outstanding, fantastic, fascinating exhibition.

  2. I am going to do it!!!
    I trained already for one year and eat only good food.
    Try to let go all western habits like watching tv, junk food, do stupid things because I don’t know what to do now, the west is the best, western society can’t learn from ancient cultures etc.

    By the way, when is the book of H. v. Dongelen arriving on the market???

    See you in future cause I go all around!!!

  3. I was traveling thru Amsterdam on my way back to Florida on Oct 7th and went to the museum to see the exhibit. I was extremely excited, and then found out it had been postponed due to scheduling conflicts???
    Will the exhibit be coming to the USA??
    Thank you,

  4. Jakob,

    I saw your post on my blog, so I came by your blog to check out. Lot’s to see here, I’ll have to keep digging. I found this page and was most impressed, so I had to comment.

  5. Hello Herb, will your exhibit be coming to the United States? Any plans on compiling a book with all of your photos from the bike trip?
    Thank you,

  6. Hi Herb.
