Interested.   I was just seeing how to get there and it looks like 20k from Hook of Holland.

There is a night ferry that arrives at 08:00 but it looks like that would be too late if the bunches leave between 06:00 and 08:00.

Like the look of that, but I'd put the chances of being able to travel by April 2021 without taking 6 weeks of holiday and spending most of it in Quarantine somewhere between Zero and None.

Can't see the route in Detail but the first loop sounds like I've ridden a fair whack of it, certainly most of from Hoek to Bergen-an-zee ish and part of the return may match what I did from Bergen to Delft.
I may have ridden some of the bit in Zeeland

There is a night ferry that arrives at 08:00 but it looks like that would be too late if the bunches leave between 06:00 and 08:00.

When we have used the ferry previously, we generally plan on getting away from the port by 8:30am. Generally you can be on the road earlier, but not reliably.

In any case, not making getting to the start on time a possibility. Maybe go the previous night, and spend a day sightseeing!

I've entered, plan on arriving the day before and camping nearby. ideally finding others to share the cabin cost if overnight crossing(s).

It's a lovely time of year to cycle in .NL. It's peak tulip season for starters...

You’re keen.  I’m really not planning that far ahead yet.  I did for this year and it didn’t turn out very well.

Think it took me a bit more than that to get out of Europoort last winter, that was without having to answer any of the arrival questions since I was still EU citizen at the time.
It could be the full set including "show me your hotel bookings for every night or prove you've got x per night in your bank account" by then

No surely that'll never ever happen!
Well, what I mean is: that wasn't written on the side of a bus.....
Besides, it wouldn't be audacious if success were guaranteed.

Thanks for posting this, looks interesting.  At the moment my 2020 RATN entry has been bumped to 2021, but something a little shorter could be more appealing next year...

In qualifying for PBP the BRM400 was around the same period. It is a good way to build up, where you can ride most / in its entirety in 3 days with daylight. The course is mainly flat.
