Preparing for Under-Construction

About two weeks ago I started my preparations for a new trip: Road to Under-Construction. 

Thankfully I won't have to climb nearly as much this time around. The trip will be roughly the same distance as Road to Revision (520km) but without the Ardennes in between, which made the trip to Saarbrücken quite the challenge and delayed my arrival at the demoparty with a day. This past summer I learned that cycling along a river means taking the path of least resistance. Although, as you can see in the picture below, I will be cycling uphill towards the river's source.

The plan is to leave The Hague on the 18th of December and arrive in Gernsheim on the 26th. This means travelling about 60 kilometers a day; not a whole lot but this will give me time to shoot and edit video as well.

Hopefully I'll arrive in Cologne after about 5 days.

After Cologne I'll just have to follow the Rhine to get to Gernsheim.

In order to prepare for the trip I'm currently sorting out my gear. I'm investing in winter clothes because it's likely to get very cold and possibly wet. I'm also looking into revising my camera equipment as I misplaced my GoPro and crashed my drone in England... I'll post more about this soon!
