Fernwee is a YouTube channel following the Botje Racing Team in the Netherlands. Channel purveyor Martijn recently produced this three part video series documenting their most recent challenge: to cycle from the North to the South of the Netherlands on as much gravel as possible. They ended up with a 460km route. Along the way they passed by each of their grandparents’ homes to see them for the first time since Covid-19 started.
