Eindhoven cyclists are on their way from Normandy to Eindhoven with the freedom flame.

They left just after 06:00 this morning (Tuesday) from the Boulevard d’Eindhoven in the French city of Bayeux. The trip will take a day and a half. They were seen off by the Eindhoven Councillor for Finance and Operations, Marcel Oosterveer, two municipal councillors, and a delegation from the Oost-Brabant police force.

The bicycle tour carrying the flame of peace is a tradition that has existed since 1945. The torch will arrive at Eindhoven’s Stadshuisplein on Wednesday evening.
