It’s a tradition to ride from the last World Championships location to the new WC location, this year from Herning in Denmark to Oirschot in the Netherlands. Riders are welcome with well-trained and traffic proof Icelandic horses.
The Regional Associations organize the relay ride from the German Border. From Enschede to Oirschot from July 29th until August 6th. It’s 200 kilometers in a week. It will be a robust ride, 30 kilometers a day, camping and cooking. The river Rhine will be crossed by bicycle-ferry. Support is arranged: transport of luggage, a trainer, a blacksmith and a veterinarian are on stand bys.
