Haarlem or Gouda?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are in our late 60's and I have a physical limitation as well (limited walking). But, we can ride bikes although only on easy and fairly level terrain.

We'll be staying in Amsterdam for three nights in late August, but want to get into "the country" for one day to enjoy the sights and sounds and flavors of Holland. We planned to take the train either to Haarlem or Gouda and rent bikes there.

Can someone please comment on these two cities I have chosen or perhaps suggest a better place? I'd love to see either cheese being made, flowers or just riding among the windmills in the countryside.

Thanks, in advance.

Marty
