Overview
Leave the bustle of the city behind on a 4-5 hour countryside bike tour from Amsterdam. Take a leisurely ride along the banks of the Amstel River, explore the Dutch polders and Amsterdamse Bos while you hear about local history and rural Dutch traditions, and admire the scenery of the city’s green spaces.

The majority of the tour is spent riding along the Amstel River beyond the edge of town and through the polder landscape with its rectilinear ditches and dikes. We’ll show you one of the few remaining authentic windmills and we visit a lovely Dutch couple at their cheese farm and clog factory.  At the farm they will demonstrate the traditional art of making wooden shoes and famous Gouda cheese. Afterwards you’ll be able to have a look around in their little gift shop and taste some free samples of authentic Dutch cheese.
