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.

Can it get any better than getting exercise and learning about Amsterdam at the same time? Mateus, our guide , was extremely knowledgeable, charming and was very concerned about our safety and keeping our group together. We would recommend this group to all that enjoy biking while learning about the rich history of Amsterdam.

This tour was so much fun! I would highly recommend it. You learn a lot and you get to sample many cheeses. Riding through the countryside is a great way to see the life here.

We really enjoyed visiting the countryside by bike. The Cheese tasting and Clog demonstration session was super and very entertaining. The tour guide Mike was excellent! She was experienced in keeping the group together at the required pace and good fun as well.

Amazing time! It rained during our tour ponchos were provided- you would think this ruined the trip, but not at all. Our guide one of the Mikes had very amicable, he was full of insights, and very communicative about what the bike route was going to be. We kept a really steady pace and everyone in the group kept up nicely. We saw windmills, got a chance to try and buy cheese at the farm we stopped by, and we even visited a local biergarden they opened for our group! so it was really chill and got to buy snacks and try their brews. This tour was probably my favorite part of the trip.

We did this bike tour with Patrick not Swayze : and it was so much fun! He gave us good background history information without boring us with too many facts and the country side we rode through was beautiful. It was a pretty leisurely ride and didnt take someone incredibly fit. The local farm was neat as well. We got to pet and feed the cows and the cheese was absolutely delicious!! Highly recommend.

I would do this again. It was a fast pace and you will need to be assertive riding the bike in Amsterdam. The cheese farmer certainly loves little women. He was a character. The cheese and wooden shoe price was very reasonable. You should bring a lunch and bottled water with you. This is not a leisurely bike ride.
