Netherlands April cycling advice

Jump to last reply

We are planning a 3 week trip starting in Bruges 3 nights, then train to Netherlands for 8-9 days, then train to Loire Valley for self-guided bike trip ending with 4 days in Paris. From what we read April weather is iffy and we wonder if we should book a self-guided cycle trip or base somewhere and take day trips and day/cycle trips when its not raining. We timed this trip to arrive in hope for cycling around the tulip fields. The parade seems to fall within our time in Netherlands, which will be April 18 or 19 until April 27.
Here are our questions:
- where would we base ourselves (1-3 locations, one being Amsterdam for at least 3 nights) so we can cycle early morning to the tulip fields (photographer here). And want to see the parade on the weekend of Apr 25)
- would those more experienced recommend a self-guided tour or day trips from a base? It looks easy enough to do.
- Or best to base in one place for the whole time?? This is our first trip to NL.
thanks in advance
