Tour d'Utrecht

The finish. Or the start, it always confuses me

Today the Tour de France, World's biggest cycling event, will start in Utrecht. This city is located about 12 miles to the southwest of Amersfoort.

In a Dutch city canals are not hard to find

Utrecht is the child you'd get when Amsterdam and Amersfoort would marry. Its population is a bit larger (twice as much), and their tower is a bit higher than ours (45 feet difference), but besides that it's a nice city to visit on a Saturday afternoon.
