What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Countryside Bike Tour Including Cheese Tasting and Clog Demonstration

Explore the Dutch countryside on this bike tour

Leave the bustle of the city behind on a 4-hour countryside bike tour from Amsterdam. Your 13.5- to 15-mile (22- to 25-kilometer) ride will take you the outskirts of the city and the countryside beyond, stopping along the way so your guide can share interesting anecdotes and background.

Your tour begins in central Amsterdam in the late morning, when your informative guide provides a brief introduction to Amsterdam’s history. Then, cycle through the bike-friendly city of Amsterdam, pedaling along narrow streets and canals and over beautiful bridges.

Slowly, your cityscape changes to tranquil pastures and peaceful waterways. Keep watch for colorful houseboats, as well as people fishing and rowing in the water.

At a local farmhouse, meet a farmer and enjoy some Dutch traditions: sample farm-produced cheese and watch a demonstration of how clogs are made. Stop at the iconic De Riekermolen windmill, one of only eight remaining authentic windmills in and around Amsterdam.

During your ride back to Amsterdam, cycle through some of the city’s parks including the lush Vondelpark, Amsterdam’s largest and most well-known park, and the woodland scenery of Amsterdamse Bos Park. Your tour ends in the afternoon.

This was a fantastic experience! First off, I haven't rode a bike in like 15 years so that was a concern of mine. Our guide and the bike company took time to make sure that I was on a proper bike, and also that I was comfortable before going out. Our guide also stated that at any time if she felt I was not riding safely she would send me back, and did appreciate that. All in all, I ended up doing well and having a wonderful experience. Seeing Amsterdam on a bike is how it is meant to be seen I think. The city riding was a bit more challenging, especially for this novice, but if I could do it, I think anyone could. Once you were out of the city, the path was a nice quiet path along the river. We rode to a windmill and then to a cheese farm. The farmer was very welcoming and funny and the cheese was delicious. After we took another side tour to a brewery in a windmill since our group was very small, only 3 people the last tour of the season in November 2016. It was a wonderful day that I still talk about. I would definitey recommend this experience.

A must do in Amsterdam!! Mike is funny, full of energy, and has an incredible grasp on the history of the areas through which you ride. She expertly guides you through the busy streets of the city and out into the gorgeous countryside, all at a manageable pace. The bikes are in great condition, and come with pouches for you to put small personal belongings in. We've traveled extensively and this tour is one of the best we have ever taken! The bike shop is easy to find, clean, and organized and all of the staff are super friendly and helpful. We plan on returning to Mike's if we're ever in Amsterdam to rent bikes and explore on our own. There is time to have lunch when you stop at the cheese farm, so I recommend bringing a light lunch or snack, as well as a bottle of water.

The guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We took the ride into the countryside. Amazing how close it was. The bikes were great and they provided rain caes which we needed for a quick shower. It was beautiful and from ages 9 to 66 in our family we all kept pace.

Excellent tour led by Lyle, or was it Kyle, an American transplant. He knew great amounts of Dutch and city history, a wealth of knowledge!!! It was a short but fun trip to the countryside. We got to see cheese making as well as wooden shoe making. The city is much more fun of 2 wheels.
