|la mia olanda
tour started May 2006, submitted 24 September 2009
Organizzare un viaggio in bici in Olanda predispone a perdere la testa nel confrontare 260 itinerari per 15.000 km. - avete letto bene - tanti sono quelli proposti che vengono inviati su richiesta dall'ente turismo olandese.
Gli itinerari corrono tutti su vere e proprie piste preferenziali ciclabili a tutti gli effetti. Queste sono ovunque: nelle città nelle periferie, nei villaggi, nelle campagne. Dove c'è una strada, ai suoi lati esiste una corsia preferenziale per il traffico in bicicletta. Le biciclette sono migliaia. Le piste come tavole di biliardo.
|Our Cycling Trip from Den Haag to Amsterdam, Holland (1992)
, submitted 24 February 2009

|A family cycling trip in Netherlands

|So just how interesting can grass verges get?
tour started May 2007, submitted 16 December 2007
A three day trip through the loveliest middle bits of the Netherlands on recumbent trikes.
Ten minutes on KMX trikes at the Bikemotion Benelux Fair in Autumn 2006 convinced us that recumbent trikes were actually very cool. A few months later at another fair in Essen in Germany, we were able to try out an ICE Trice and a HP Velotechnik Scorpion. They were cool too!
We did, however, realise that there was a big difference between ten minute sessions in a crowded exhibition hall and using these HPV's on a daily basis. So, when Damae found a shop that hired out trikes, we picked a three day weekend in late May of 2007 and headed off towards the 'Hoge Veluwe' on a Trice and a Scorpion.
So how did it go and what have we learned? Well there are lots of thoughts and impressions in the travelogue of the trip together with videos and pictures. There is also a short comparative review of the Trice and Scorpion which draws our thoughts together. Last but not least, some conclusions and our recommendations. Do still think they are cool? Of course we do!
|Easter 2007: Four friends, four bikes and four provinces. From Hoek van Holland to Delfzijl in four days.
tour started April 2007, submitted 23 November 2007
We decided to do the Dutch NSCR from Hoek van Holland to Delfzijl in the Easter break just for fun. The North Sea Cycle website suggested it was only 320km, ``No problem'' we thought. However by the end of the third day we had passed that total and we still had some way to go. Fortunately we had good luck with the weather and managed to complete the tour. There was even time to drink coffee and eat lots of 'appelgebak' along the way.
The travelogue includes the story of each day's cycle, with pictures and trip statistics and a gallery. An Epilogue provides a summary of our long weekend and the NSCR in Holland. There is also extra report covering the remainder of the route, from Nieuweschans to Delfzijl, cycled on Bromptons one sunny day in September 2007.
The NSCR in the Netherlands is not only a good introduction to what the country has to offer as a cycling holiday destination, but also a great place to start your own North Sea Cycle Saga. We certainly enjoyed ourselves.

Descriptions of several short (1-3 days) bicycleroutes in the Netherlands.
|The Dutch Fashion - a 2-wheel tour of Holland
tour started 2000
The plan: Holland, children, bicycles. We figured the rest would evolve on its own.
So we gave up on the advance details, arranged for an Amsterdam apartment that came equipped with the owners' bicycles and landed on a breezy July morning at Schiphol Airport, which is grand and clean and extremely efficient; by lunch time, our bags piled up at the top of the apartment's staircase landing, we were bicycling. Before sundown the next day, we had grasped the essentials.
|Discover Amsterdam, City of bicycles
tour started 2000
This cycle tour is designed to show you Amsterdam's many varied and often surprising aspects. Not only does it take in the historic city centre, it also shows you other neighbourhoods, and demonstrates that Amsterdam is a city with 'green' credentials. The text provides information about Amsterdam and the measures that have been taken to make cycling in the city an enjoyable and safe experience.
The cycle tour is approximately 37 km long. Riding at a moderate pace, it should take you about 4 hours to complete. In Rembrandtpark in Amsterdam West, it is possible to take a short cut making it some 10 km shorter.
|A One Week Bike Trip in Holland
tour started 1998
After a long ride through the dunes we arrived in Den Haag[...] We rode to the Palace of Justice, arriving at 11 AM, just as they were starting their first tour. We quickly stashed our bikes by the guard's post at the gate, paid the fee (f10.00) and took the tour (conducted in English) though the Palace of the International Courts of Justice. After the tour, well worth the cost, we rode over to the ``old area'' near the Parliament buildings and bought our lunch at the place we came to know and love, McDonalds (f15.00).
tour started June 1993

|Amsterdam - City of Bikes
Then we saw the bikes. My God, the bikes.
How can I describe them? Should I even try? Well, why not. They were just normal bikes, after all. A bit clunky-looking. Fat and heavy, but not in a judgmental way. After all, they weren't meant for racing. They were meant for lumbering over cobblestones and kerbs and dumbstruck pedestrian tourists and tram tracks and probably along the bottoms of canals, should the need arise.
And they. Were. Everywhere. Even the city aquarium had one in a display tank, dangling like bait above a couple of uninterested fish, and graphically proving, to me at least, that the saying ``A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle'' really means something, at least to fish.

|Cycling in the Netherlands
Provisions for bicycling in Netherlands presents an inspiring ``alternate reality'' to what is found in the United States. While not a complete utopia, bicyclists' needs are routinely accommodated in a culture that recognizes human-powered transportation as a legitimate mode.
|Fietspad langs de digitale snelweg
