Interesting chart showing when the Giro was won. Not the ‘drama and suspense’ INRNG had hoped for: «In terms of the chart above you want to see highs and lows rather than flat lines.»

On 29 April 1943, wildcat strikes broke out in the Netherlands to protest against the Nazi occupation. They started with a walkout at the Stork factory in Hengelo, and quickly spread across the country.

These strike density maps for 30 April and 1 and 2 May are from a report for the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation (P.J. Bouman 1950, De april-mei-stakingen van 1943).

Note that it’s allowed to place your regular bicycle in a dedicated bike share rack.
