Holland & Cycling routes
Holland is flat and has a unique infrastructure that includes 20,000 kilometres (12,000 miles) of specially designated cycling lanes and paths. Within a one-day cycling trip you will pedal your way through different varieties of landscapes, each with its own cultural and historical characteristics. The climate is moderate with April-September temperatures between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius (60-90 F).
The bicycle is a familiar everyday sight in Holland. Traffic systems are adapted to take cyclists into account and the system is supported by a comprehensive system of road signs. Biking is very safe, even young children commute to school by bike. The friendly and multilingual Dutch are always ready to show off their country and to share their paths with fellow cyclists. You will be surprised at the amount of consideration motorists give to cyclists. And the reason why? It is because most of them are cyclists themselves!
The most scenic and safest routes form an important part of your cycling tour. Your Tulip Cycling itinerary is based on our route manager's extensive knowledge of the Dutch cycling lanes and path infrastructure. We will guide you along the small, back roads of Holland, many of which are unknown to the majority of cyclists! There are plenty of opportunities en route to stop and have a rest at one of the many restaurants, terraces or designated picnic areas.
For self-guided tours our unique route guidance system uses a combination of GPS and cycling maps. The GPS gives your exact position at any given time, while the cycling map provides a route overview. You will find more information on the About Tulip Cycling, Support page.
