Tour is only offered May- September lasting approximately 5 hours.
All one need do is cycle about 20 minuets and quickly you’ll reach the waterlands, the country-side just north of Amsterdam. Soon it’s cows and signs offering up farmer’s freshly made ice-cream or milk.
Because the Netherlands is relatively flat one does not be need to be in top shape to partake. Even so, we’ll bike roughly 25Km and if you are not use to riding you may feel it a bit the following day.
At the back side of Central Station where we’ll find a Free ferry boat to take us across the bay ‘t IJ into Noord (north) Amsterdam. We’ll discuss water and land management, see an old school windmill, discuss why the Dutch are so bike crazed and how they used these paths during the second world war in search of goods. There will be plenty of photo opportunities along the way. We’ll cruise through a few villages and stop for a beverage along the Ijsselmeer. Since we’ll spend most of our time outside the cities the stress of biking in Amsterdam will be minimized.
Meet at the Wheel Good Bike shop: Oudezijds Armsteeg 22; 1012GP Amsterdam before 1015am (unless otherwise scheduled).
