The Dutch and their bicycles, they’re pretty legendary. While tour operators lure tourists to Holland for its tulips and windmills, it’s actually the unique Dutch cycle culture that stands out most. Bicycles everywhere.
To get around Amsterdam by bike, there are two dedicated cycle maps available: one covers the whole of the city, the other the Amsterdam region. What's the difference between the two maps? Which map should you choose?
Summer 2014 we cycled the Dutch section of the Limes Cycle Route which follows the northern border of the Roman Empire. How much can you still see of this Roman history? And is the guide book any use if you don't understand Dutch?
In June 2013 we cycled the Cyclists's Path. The only existing guide book is in Dutch. Is this a problem if you don’t understand the language? And what does the route have to offer? We decided to find out.
