Cycling in Amsterdam and The Netherlands

The very best routes in the cyclist's paradise


£15.99 
 

There is no happier cyclist than a Dutch cyclist. This is not only because The Netherlands is mainly flat, but also because the Dutch enjoy the most extensive cycle network in the world. Amsterdam is famous for its cyclists and with this guidebook you'll cycle on those routes the locals love themselves. Whether you are a novice cyclist, want to give children a safe and fun cycling experience, want to do some serious mileage or want to embark on a study trip to experience the Dutch cycling infrastructure, this second and fully revised edition caters for all!

With 1064 km (656 miles) of routes, this book can provide up to three weeks of cycling fun. Six circular day rides, all with various distance itineraries, explore Amsterdam and its direct surroundings. A circular touring route of 337 km (208 miles) provides a highlights route of Dutch landmarks. From Amsterdam, you'll explore the Dutch windmill reserves and tulip fields, the amazing coastal sand dune reserves, splendid inland waterway routes, unspoilt countryside, medieval towns like Gouda, Edam, Delft and great cities like The Hague, Utrecht and Haarlem. More routes heading north, east and south provide further route variety on what The Netherlands has on offer. Utrecht Ridge National Park, the River Rhine, the famous Delta Dams, the world's largest reclaimed island and even some real Dutch hills are all part of the pack!

The routes in the book have full connectivity with all main Dutch ferry ports, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Amsterdam, The Hague and Utrecht Central railway stations. This allows you to start cycling straight away, whether you arrive by plane, ferry or train. 300 listed facilities include bike rentals, bike shops, B&Bs, hotels, hostels and campsites. This guidebook fits easily in a standard handlebar map holder, with maps and directions that make navigating easier than ever before. Additional chapters about the history of the Dutch cycling culture and the unique Dutch cycle route system make this book a must for anyone who loves cycling!

Eric van der Horst is the author of various specialised cycling guidebooks for those who love cycling, but don't like traffic and caters for an international audience. Just as for his London-Land's End Cycle Route book he also runs an updates page and GPS-tracks service for this book, see cyclinginholland.com.
