Duvel on Tour
Cycled the Duvel On Tour today with the family.
Great fun, awesome weather and a quiet and enjoyable route throughout Northern Antwerp.
Only remark: they replaced the traditional collectors’ glass with a plastic drinking bottle.
I might be wrong but I assume most cyclists already have a drinking bottle, whereas an “exclusive” glass is always useful in the kitchen and/or collection.
In our case, this goodie will result in two plastic bottles in a closet forever, or probably, bottles in a landfill in a few years time.
Duvel, I’d rather have you giving out nothing than plastic. Especially in these times. So please lead by example next year and return to a more useful goodie, or maybe just.. nothing?
And yes, not accepting the item was an option, but accepting is the default for most.
