However wonderful Amsterdam may be, sometimes you want to get out of the city bustle and relax in peace. You want to ride a bicycle along the water, such as the Amstel and Vecht rivers, or enjoy the view of beautiful polder landscapes. You want to let the wind clear your head on the banks of IJsselmeer lake and explore authentic villages like De Rijp, Grootschermer or Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. And why not? Get on a bicycle and explore – there is nothing more enjoyable!
