Advice for mid-April Netherlands tulip bike tour

Jump to last reply

I am thinking about putting together a five to seven day bike trip through various tulip regions for April 2016. I'm fat and out of shape, but it's flat and we won't be doing many miles every day. We'll probably be arriving by ferry, so I can start in either The Hague or Leiden. My thinking is that we will start in Leiden and buy used bicycles.

I have an idea of what we might do for our first few days, namely start in Leiden, buy used bicycles, bike to Keukenhof and spend the night. Be at Keukenhof at rope drop the next morning, then on to Haarlem for the night. Two nights in Amsterdam. (or maybe skip the night in Haarlem).

Okay, now I'm a little lost. I want to go through Flevoland and think I want to end up in a community called Emmeloord. I really don't know much about the Netherlands in general, but this is just an area about which I know nothing. Also, is the area around Emmeloord more heavily planted with tulips than the rest of Flevoland? I've seen a tulip route maps that just criss-crosses the region, and if so, would I be better off just taking a train to Emmeloord and spending all our time there rather than biking from Amsterdam? Any towns we ought to stay in on the way?

One final question. Is is safe to bike from Haarlem to Amsterdam, and likewise to bike out of Amsterdam to the east? Or should we take a train until we get out of the city? I know a lot of people bike, but I just don't want to get caught in a traffic snarl.

Any advice is solicited, and I do hope PalenQ sees this!
