For more than 100 years, around 15,000 participants have been cycling the Eleven Cities Bicycle Tour every Whit Monday. The start and finish of this 235-kilometre-long tour is in Bolsward. In the morning between 05.00 and 08.00, participants start in 23 different groups, in the centre of Bolsward. A group of around 650 participants starts every 8 minutes. The different groups are composed according to a lottery system. To complete the tour, the participants need to have collected all stamps from the different checkpoints and have passed the finish check in Bolsward by midnight.
