Our book Cycling in Amsterdam and The Netherlands – The very best routes in the cyclist’s paradise features 1,064 kms (656 miles) of routes, so you can truly have up to three weeks of cycling fun; the perfect companion for one or multiple excellent cycling holidays!

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.

The book features six day rides in and around Amsterdam, all starting and ending at the Central Station, and with various distance itineraries to please everyone. These routes (total length 232 km - 143 miles) could all be cycled from one accommodation. Another important feature of the book is the Randstad Circle route (337 km - 208 miles), starting and ending in Amsterdam and connecting to all Dutch ferry ports to the United Kingdom. This route is in many respects a "best of The Netherlands route", allowing you to make a relaxed holiday of a week or so, with cycling from one accommodation to another. It features routes via the famous tulip fields, the Kinderdijk World Heritage windmills reserve, the coastal cycling highway (North Sea Cycle Route) and famous Dutch cities such as Haarlem, The Hague, Gouda, Delft and Utrecht. Inland routes via scenic waterways such as the River Vecht and the Green Heart provide further route variety.
