A lovely spring sunshine, a bicycle and a phenomenal bike ride; during May Bike Month the fixed routes go overboard. In the month of May, local route planners and tourist offices pull out all the stops to show what the region has to offer. This results in hundreds of bike routes that each offer something extra. Some even combine cycling with other activities.

Bicycle Activities in the Netherlands

Head out on a tandem and enjoy High Tea afterwards? It is possible in Bladel, Brabant. Are you in doubt between a day of cycling and a day of sailing...? Why not do both! In Friesland you can bike along the Frisian lakes and through the woods of Gaasterland, and then finish the day on the water with a 2.5 hour sailing cruise in a real skûtsje. Or take the inspiring tour from the tea garden in Delft to Midden Delfland along all kinds of shops selling antiques and high quality second hand goods. Or enjoy a culinary tour with the Taste Route through the Vecht Valley in Overijssel and stop somewhere to fill your bicycle basket with goodies. The trail features magnificent castles and ancient strongholds, combined with a number of culinary stops where you can literally taste the region.

Hundreds of thousands of cyclists

Perhaps the biggest difficulty of your day will be to chose which path to take from all those bike routes. Do not worry, the online route finder will surely help.
