There are many things that the beautiful, spirited Netherlands is known for but cycling in Amsterdam surely trumps everything else. Cobbled streets, quaint bridges, canals and colourful terraces all blend together, making this magnetic capital a firm favourite for two-wheeling.
With over 60 miles (100 km) of canals as well as a lakeside position and close proximity to the North Sea, cycle routes throughout Amsterdam are very much defined by serene and charming waterways. With an outstanding network of cycle paths both in the capital and fanning outwards, you can ride for hours or days in the surrounding areas. Cycle along the coast northwards for views across the water and never encounter so much as a hill.
Traffic-free cycle paths abound and with understanding drivers, cycling in Amsterdam and it’s more rural surroundings is fantastic for families. In the south of the city, Amsterdam Forest is the place to get your fill of nature.
