Cycling The Netherlands

Cycling past the windmills of KinderdijkThe Netherlands (or Holland, as it’s commonly known) is arguably the best country in the world for a bicycle tour.

It’s a nation that’s absolutely crazy about the bicycle, with more bikes than people!

As a visiting bike tourist, this means you can benefit from a phenomenally well developed bicycle network, including thousands of dedicated paths and free guarded bike parking in cities.

While you’re here, you can also:

  • Brush up on the Dutch master painters. Museums across the country feature paintings by Rembrandt and Vermeer.
  • Sun yourself on the beaches of the North Sea. Or simply ride along the dunes on tranquil bike paths.
  • Waltz through the tulip fields. Come in mid April or early May for the best display of colour! Read more.
  • Fill up on apple cake and pancakes. Traditional Dutch food is hearty and comforting.

We’re so crazy about cycling here, that we created a free eBook with 20 Tips For Bike Touring In The Netherlands.

    I simply wanted to appreciate you again. I’m not certain the things I might have used in the absence of the type of recommendations discussed by you regarding such a question. This was the horrifying matter for me, but looking at the professional form you resolved that took me to jump with fulfillment. Extremely thankful for the information and as well , trust you recognize what a great job you are always putting in educating many people through the use of your websites. I am sure you haven’t encountered any of us.
