From a two-day itinerary to a grand tour, Holland is miles ahead when it comes to cycling holidays.
There are 26 Landelijke fietsroutes – LF-routes (long distance routes) that stretch throughout the country. The manageable scale and relatively flat terrain of the Netherlands makes it perfectly suited for a cycling holiday so you can cover plenty of ground and tick off your must-see destinations. Why not organise a trip for the whole family or an epic tour taking in a number of the LF-routes for a group of your cycle fanatic friends?
ANWB (The Royal Dutch Touring Club) produce a 1:300,000 map of the Netherlands showing all LF-routes, very useful when planning a tour. This map also includes 58 marked Mountain Biking Trails if you want to get a bit more adventurous and cost only €4.95 at most good travel book shops.
If you would rather leave your bike at home, you can hire a bike at many railway stations. Rental companies or the tourist information office will also be able to suggest some good local paths.
