Beautiful scenery just outside of Amsterdam

The tour starts in Amsterdam, taking in the famous Skinny Bridge, the Blauwbrug and the locks. Grand historical houses and other famous landmarks reflect the town's prosperity in the Golden Age. As the scenery becomes more rural, the route passes a windmill before reaching a traditional 15th-century farm specialised in making cheese and clogs, and then returns to the city centre. Cycling through the rural Dutch polder landscape, it's hard to believe that one is only a short distance away from bustling Amsterdam.
