puddin--your bike path map will take you right there...

So does that look like our Marina? If not--there are at least 2 more right near by....

Actually there are so many marinas that really we need one good landmark to identify something  :pull

What is the source of this cap? What I mean is, can the name of the boat be brought up? If you can find the boat, you might be able to find the slip.

AOL had a nice clear video but it doesn't work anymore and couldn't be downloaded. All we have is CBS's crappy youtube.

I like it! Plus we know they are right there anyway.

But darn it is hard getting all in this marina! puddin found the best pics so far...

Heee... I have to say that I'm just relieved that we all have found it! It is only Monday and I was tired of all those Marinas already!  And GE and I have a love-hate relationship so nice to be done with that part!

Now...what we REALLY need from our guys are some time shots!  :please:

Because we need to get a handle on who might be going out next.

And we have no idea WHAT the two detours in Amsterdam are, right? We sort of know where--but not what? So we need to ponder on that too!

And what else do we still need to know?

Did y'all see that they camped at the last pitstop? Wonder where they might have stayed this time?

I can't quite read the label on the side of the cart, but a little googling brought up Bakfiets, a Dutch bike that's apparently trendy here (I'd never heard of it  ???).
Detour Cargobike?

digs thorough pictures ---

rails? and then theres the blondes --

That could just be the train from Schipol to Central Station--although I am still holding out for the Thalys to Paris next week.

But there are bunches of cute places to go just a quick ride away.


And oh yes! Slowhatch's cute  cargo bike should be this week too! :happy:

 :angel:  Just throwing this out there as another piece of information.  The girls appear to be running past a train which may be "Sprinter" livery (railway stock).  Here's a blurb on the "sprinter" livery:

The Sprinter (SGM, Stads Gewestelijk Materieel) is a two or three car electric, used on small distances. They are named Sprinter because they're able to accelerate and brake quite fast, making them very suitable for 'stoptrein' services. They were also specifically designed for urban environments where they run commuter services. As a result, they are most commonly found in the Randstad area. The initial idea was that the Sprinter would provide somewhat of a subway/metro service but this plan failed as the cities of Amsterdam and Rotterdam continued to construct their own rapid transit systems. Nevertheless, in the densely populated Randstad, the Sprinters remain popular. Two car versions have been revised and are now named Citypendel. Three car versions can be seen in two versions: the old yellow version, and the refurbished ones in white/yellow/dark blue livery ("Vlaflip").

Good job on the Choo-Choo's Boingo!

So they use local transport to get around there--always fun!

okay--couple of ideas:

This is clearly on the way to the Pitstop by the Marina--can someone (Chateau?) pinpoint just where? then we could see exactly which way they are coming from. That radio tower or whatever it is in the back ground might help.


Also: where is this? It looks to me like it could possibly be taken on the deck of one of those Dutch canal boats! Giving us maybe an idea for another task?


And then--found another view also labelled Durgendam Haven:

Wind machine.

They are arriving from the North east.  So they are headed south west along the waterfront.

Thanks for the Video link puddin! Vyxsin looks to me like she could be  taking that deep breath just before you lift something heavy...

Noticed this for the first time on puddin's lovely screencaps:
Azaria bikes:


So I expect teams to travel by Train from Schiphol Airort to Central Station where they go here:

and choose a bike. They may need to bike to Werengouw.

Werengouw
: unknown task  or just collect clue?

Then local train to Ransdorp/Durgerdam where they pole vault a muddy canal: So far seen doing this are Gramps, Shana, and Jenny.

Then by local train again or the cargo bike to Durgerdam where they

--do something on a canal boat? Pick up something heavy?

--transport it and/or themselves using cargo bikes to Pitstop at Durgerdam Marina.

So it is bare bones but a start, right? :lol:

MAPS! available for this leg HERE
