Famously as flat as a pancake, the Dutch countryside is a joy to cycle. This gentle bike tour reveals some of the best and most picturesque countryside beyond the city limits. The route is gentle, covering 30km (18.5 miles) and one that takes in quiet villages, fields filled with cows and windmills and glorious coastal pathways with sea breezes that will put a real spring in your step.
