27 juli 2012 - Amsterdam (FBI HQ)- With the lonkeroa this Finnish favourite was first created for the Helsinki Olympic Games in 1952, arriving in the DAM we are ready to party.

We wish all traveling to the FBI a save journey and see you soon. Let the games begin.
26 juni 2012 - Amsterdam (FBI HQ)- First day start of the cruise is in Amersfoort, meetingpoint Amersfoort trainstation.To be there at 12.00 so you don't miss the start make sure to leave in time from Amsterdam central station by train. It takes 35-45 minutes to get to Amersfoort by train and will cost you +/- 15 euro. One way ticket for yourself is 7.70 euro and you need one for your bike which is about the same price.

The train to Amersfoort leaving Amsterdam at 10.06, 10.26, 10.36, 10.56 and 11.06 will get you in time in Amersfoort. Don't all try to get the last train as space for bikes on the train in limited and being a bit early in Amersfoort is not a bad idea as the nearby old centre is worth a visit.

And you must fill in the personal name of the person. So you must introduce yourself to the person and ask his name and perhaps something about his bicycle. So there is more interaction between the people, and you have a conversation with a person you never would speak to perhaps. On the Saturday we get your card back and on the end of the day at the Vliegenbos the Chopperdome have some nice things for first, second and third place winners. So everybody is in the COTY and can join the COTY.
