Update from Sam September 27th:
Quick update from my training session this weekend. 32km to work towards the Amsterdam Marathon.
Update from Jess September 22nd:
Just wanted to do my update… a little late with all the not so great happenings lately.
…. But, we did our wonderful mini TNI cycle event on Saturday past.
We went from the TNI office to the beach in Bloemendaal! And back!
A massive thank you to everyone who donated and supported. Although the final amount is showing 118 euros through FB with the direct donations to TNI i have raised 978.32!!! So almost hit the target. Still a few hours till it closes off.
I will do the big dam tot dam fiets classic next year. (hoping by then to do the 80 or i should do the 100km! Be rude not to. )
Thanks Katie, Sebas, John, Marga and Mike for being our official team photographer. Go team!
Update from Jeoffrey September 19th:
Despite the official event being cancelled, I rode 160k yesterday around the Markermeer. Had great weather and saw some great sites. It was tough, but i completed the ride faster than I thought, with an average of 28km/hour
Even threw in 10 extra k’s to ride to TNI to enjoy the BBQ for the other participants that also rode that day.
A big thank you to everyone that donated, I managed to raise nearly 300,- Euros !!!
Update from Fons September 18th:

Update from TNI August 19th:
On August 18th we learned that the activities due to take place on the 18th and 19th September have been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions in the Netherlands. With such a huge amount of people attending it was not possible to go ahead with the 1.5 meter rule. Our ideas into movement team registrations from the Dam tot Dam Loop, Wandletoch and Fiets Classic are moved to 2022. We plan to hold a scaled-down version with just the TNI team that weekend. The good news is that the Marathon in October will still be taking place. Collectively we would like to thank everyone who contributed so far.
Update from Jess August 15th:
Did some serious adulting in the east of the Netherlands over the last 2 weeks. Couldnt fit my oma fiets in the car so did my riding with a racebike. Total diffrent experience but i think i got the hang of it riding each day. Lots of zooming around and zigzagging to miss the many many giant slugs all over the bike paths. I added one photo of two weird hugging sluggies.
About 1 month till the big ride. Super looking forward to it.
Update from Katie August 4th:
Some pictures from Saturday’s (45 km) ride Leiden-Amsterdam, including a pretty hilarious warning sign in the suburbs of Schiphol. I resisted the temptation to take this shortcut ferry.
Update from Fons August 3rd:
Had a 62 km training ride this morning. Special was that one of my sponsors accompanied me. Ouderkerk – 2 x Ronde Hoep and back to Amsterdam. Oké for just another tuesday morning.
Update from Sebas August 3rd:
Update from Katie August 1st:
Last weekend’s rainy trip to the Hague – does it still count as training if the main goal is dinner on the beach? 38km loop Leiden-Scheveningen. Not pictured, 10,000 tiny frogs playing frogger in the bike lane. Thanks to Cynthia Schild for the excellent company!
Update from Jess July 30th:
Super excited for my new update. Bit late at night but just got home. Dropped back my rental bike this morning after 3 days of fun zooming around in Berlin. Gotta get practice in anyway you can even on holidays.
Also charmed my way out of trouble with one of those not cop travel cops so did not get a fine for overtaking a slow Berlin rider on a bridge. Woops!
If you have not had the chance to donate yet any amount would be awesome. You can directly at www.tni.org/support-jess
thx in advance
Update from Josephine July 22nd:
Cycling to vlietland on a hired OV fiets because when you get the chance to ride you take it!
Update from Jeoffrey July 22nd:
Another great quick afternoon ride with view on the IJsselmeer
Managed to go 42km/h at one point 😵💫.
Want me to go faster? Make a donation and I’ll give it my best shot!!
And yes, my selfie game is weak, but proud of that tbh
Update from Jess July 21st:
Super happy with the weather here, Sunny and great. Makes training for the big ride wayyyyy better then when it is raining. I still need to finish work for the day before I get out for a ride. Here is a cool short TNI fundraising video we collectively made not to long ago. I clicked on it again. Its pretty cool! Check it out. See why I am doing what I am doing.
Thanks to everyone who has supported through this fundraiser or direct with TNI so far. LOVE YOU AWESOME PEEPS!
Update from Sebas July 18th:
Cycling to leiden and back.
Update from Jeoffrey July 11th:
Great ride yesterday with these Duvel worshippers;) 115k with my dad and two uncles. Amazing scenery and lots of climbing @ hoge Veluwe. Good prep for September
Of course we enjoyed a nice cold one at the end
Update from Katie July 6th:
We were rewarded for an after-dinner training bikeride with this beautiful misty Dutch sunset.
Update from Jess July 6th:
Got a big ride planned tomorrow after work and I am downloading podcasts to re-listen to.
Here Peeps check out this one on Public Banks.
Taken from https://www.tni.org/en/state-of-power-podcast
In this episode we explore what role public banks can play in building alternative finance and how they can be democratised; we hear about the case of Belfius bank in Belgium which is facing re-privatization pressures; and we explore the role that art and culture can play in helping people to understand finance.
