The Dutch royal family on the bike

Published on 25 April 2014 by Hilary Staples

Holland is a cycling nation. The the young and the old, the rich and the poor, everybody takes to the bike - even the Dutch royal family! And why shouldn't they enjoy one of the best things their country has to offer?

To mark the inauguration of Kind Willem-Alexander on 30 April 2013, Bicycle Dutch had a lovely blog post about five generations of Dutch royalty on a bicycle. A year later - as Holland is getting ready to celebrate its very fist King's Day on 26 April - we would like to share their video with you.

Royal Cycle Routes

Are you in Holland on King's Day (26 April)? If you want to join in the celebrations in royal style, here are a couple of cycle routes for you to try:

  • Zaanse Schans Cycle Route
    On 26 April you might meet King Willem-Alexander and his family along this route as they will be visiting the 17th-century fishing villages of Graft and De Rijp.

  • Apeldoon Cycle Route
    This route takes you to see Het Loo Palace, once the residence of the Dutch royal family and the Royal Forest.
