Tulips and Others: Biking in the Netherlands

Jump to last reply

We'll be in the Netherlands (first trip) next month based out of Amsterdam for two weeks with our adult son who moved there this past spring. I've been researching this trip for months and haven't gotten as much of a plan as I've had in the past when we've been fortunate enough to travel to Europe partly because we know we've got our own local guide.

That said we are looking for a couple of trips overnight for one or two nights just to see the country a bit more and to get out of his hair. Tulips I was reading your response to another thread recently and you suggested this biking route http://www.routeyou.com/nl-nl/route/view/780379/fietsroute/genieten-rondom-utrecht-langs-vecht-en-loosdrechtse-plassen-49-km. I did google translate on the page and the information on the side is making my head hurt :)

Would you give me a more Fodor-style summary of the route? Where would you recommend an overnight? Any tips from your own experience? I would be quite happy with specific information as in: take XXX train at XXXX time from Amsterdam, arrive in Utrecht and go to XXXX cycle, ask for XXX (BTW husband is 6'9' tall, 300 lbs---I know that's a consideration) bike and whatever, ...... That's the kind of stuff I normally like to figure for myself but I don't have the time this trip and I'm getting anxious about our lack of direction.

I have a couple of other similar questions which I'll post separately and try to preserve this to cycling.

Thank you all very much!
