Cycle route highlights:
The Bloemenmarkt in Amsterdam is the only floating flower market in the world. As cycling is prohibited here, walk past the stalls pushing your bike. The market is built on barges dating back to the days when flowers were brought in from the countryside by boat.
If you've brought a picnic, the Vondelpark is the ideal place on the way out or on the return journey. It is also the perfect place to wander in search of unusual plants and flowers. In 2017, schoolchildren planted 30,000 tulip bulbs at the Vondelpark monument.
Aalsmeer has the world's largest flower auction. Every day, 12 million flowers are sold at Royal FloraHolland. You will also pass the old auction, the original venue where all the flowers were bought and sold.
