During my visit of Netherlands this autum i plan to cycle Zuiderzee cycling tour (about 400 km long distance route consisting of national routes LF21, LF22 & LF23) - i plan to finish tour in about 5-6 days. Since i will visit the Netherlands with my car i have following dobuts:
- Where to start my cycling tour ? Namely, i look for possibility to safely par my car for few days, nearby hire a bike and return to the same place after few days. Do you have any idea what would be the best solution for this issue? I would like to avoid larger cities if possible and start in easter part of roure (preferable around cities of Kampen or Harderwijk)
- Where is the best option to hire a bike. I google it, but i have not found reliable information about what bikes they suggest for such tour, if it is possible to hire bike bags, etc. In some cases the prices were also high - since the Netherlands is known as cycling promoting county i expect that there should be also available to rent a proper bike for less than 100 Eur for 6 days.
- I assume that the safe during the night storage of bike during my tour (so in YH, BB, Hotels, Campings, etc.) is not an issue in Netherlands?
I am looking forward to your response and thank you in advance.
I am in Kampen for a weekend on business,in early April, and would like to extend my stay by exploring the area on a bike. Are there any companies that hire out bikes and arrange tours for a few days? Any help is much appreciated.
We will be in Amsterdam next April and plan on two nights in Kampen to explore my roots. My Great Grandparents were born in Hattem and made their home in Zalk, then Kamperveen, then Kampen (both are buried there).
Should we take a train to Kampen and rent a local car for two days? Or, should we rent a car in Amsterdam and drive to Kampen and then back to Amsterdam to get a train to our next stop - Bruges, Belguim.
Any advice is appreciated.
