Mike’s Bike Countryside tour is great way to explore the Dutch landscape and see authentic windmills.

Booking information

On this fantastic countryside bike tour you’ll first bike through the city where you’ll get an explanation about the skinny bridge, crooked buildings and bike filled canals.  Then we cruise out to the beautiful countryside of Amstelland.

The majority of the tour is spent riding along the Amstel River beyond the edge of town and through the polder landscape with its rectilinear ditches and dikes. We’ll show you two of the few remaining authentic windmills and we visit an eccentric and entertaining Dutch farmer at his cheese farm/clog factory.  At the farm they will demonstrate the traditional art of making wooden shoes and famous Gouda cheese. Afterwards you’ll be able to have a look around in their little gift shop and taste some free samples of authentic Dutch cheese.
