- Cycle to all eleven cities along the Eleven Cities Tour.
- Enjoy the Frisian landscape with over 15,000 other cyclists.

Tour through Friesland
The first group starts at 5 AM from Bolsward, after which a new group of about 650 riders starts every 8 minutes. Contrary to the skating tour the Eleven Cities Cycling Tour is not a competition but a real tour. It even has a maximum speed of 25 km/hr. If you ride too fast, you may have to wait at one of the checkpoints.Cyclists must rely exclusively on their strength so e-bikes are not allowed!
Eleven cities on a bike
The itinerary takes you to the same eleven cities as the famous ice skating tour and is about 240 kilometers long. Quite a distance to ride in a single day. The deadline for finishing is midnight. If you arrive any later, you won’t receive the commemorative medal.
