Welcome to fietstocht.com! This site is organized by Mike Vermeulen and lists bicycle tours I have taken that are at least a week long.  These trips range in distance from 355 miles (Hawaii) to 17700 miles (US/Australia/NZ/India) and in time from a week to one year.  I'm still adding links and interesting trips to these pages.

Photo at right is me on one of my early training rides.
