After the refreshment break, continue to Ransdorp. Witness the beauty of this former capital of the Waterland region with its iconic flat church tower and fascinating history. Later, begin the journey back to the city. Before getting back, stop to see Holland's last chalk windmill for another iconic photo opportunity.

The route was absolutely stunning. A more beautiful ride I have never experienced. The equipment was good, the size of the group was appropriate, and our guide Pierce gave us most interesting explanations of everything we were seeing. He covered a range of topics including agriculture, water management, history, and more.

Loved this morning bike trip through North Amsterdam! We were gone for about 4 hours with lots of stops to listen and learn as well as a stop for coffee and food! We had a lot of fun and our guide Pierce (not sure how to spell, Irish guy!) was so nice! Thank you!

Excellent escape from Amsterdam city to the countryside. Our guide was authentic and entertaining. It was a great experience seeing the hustle of the morning commute on the ferry with our bikes, contrasted with farm life

Great opportunity to experience the country, to learn more about the city and to get some exercise.

the great countryside and introduction for Amsterdam
