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.

Mikes Bikes.....This was the most enjoyable day, we had a fantastic guide knowable but a lot of fun I thoroughly recommend this to all, we are over 70's and had the most fabulous day trip...go book it now you will have the best time !!!
There were about 40 riders but you are divided into groups of 10 each with their own guide, very comfortable riding NO hills in Holland !
Other than the Rijks Museum this was our favourite day.

Please do yourself a favor and take this trip. This was the highlight of our whole trip. We had about 17 people on our tour. There were three separate tours that went out to the countryside. The people ranged from 25-65 and varying degrees of health. I would say if you can walk around a city for a day then you can probably do this tour as it's pretty flat. They took us through the city and then out to a windmill and onto the farm. The farmer is slightly odd but harmless. He hands out cheese to the ladies and makes fun of men. Slightly weird but I highly suggest getting something from him as it's the best souvenir that you'll have. The trip ended with another view of a windmill and a stop at a local biergarden. This will be a new tour next year from what they were saying. The craft beer was awesome with the view of the windmill is one I won't forget.

Our tour guide's name was Patrick and he was awesome. I can't say enough good things about Mike's Bike Tours and this particular tour. We did the city tour the next day too just because we had so much fun on this tour! The city tour is great but if you can only do one - do the countryside tour!.

Enjoy!

My favourite tourist experience of my trip! Bicycling is a serious business here in Amsterdam, and getting a taste of this local way of life while seeing different parts of the city and country side was unreal. Girl Mike was our super cool guide who was all lively and good vibes making for a great tour - Thank you!

This was my favorite tour of our whole 2-week trip! Our guide Aaron and the guys in the shop were really fun to be around. Aaron was charismatic, knowledgeable and clearly loves what he does, which are great assets to have as a tour guide. The bike ride was fun and the views were awesome. When we got to the cheese and clog farm, the dairy farmer there was hilarious and made the tour of the farm engaging and interesting. Knowing the tour was a whole 4 hours I was a bit apprehensive, thinking that would be too long for a single tour, but honestly the time flew by and it was fun the entire time! Thanks for the awesome day :D
