A question from a visitor
Hey Holland Cycling team!
We will be in Amsterdam soon and want to go from Amsterdam to Marken by bike. Is the Uitdammerdijk still closed or is it possible to take this way?
Thank you in advance!
Unfortunately, the work on the Uitdammerdijk is taking longer than planned and it will remain closed until the end of 2024. It is possible to make a detour, but obviously it is not as nice as cycling over the dyke.
Another option to get to Marken is via our Volendam Cycle Route which starts in Purmerend. This means taking a ferry from Volendam to Marken. See our Volendam Cycle Route.
I am interested in the Round Netherlands route but I do not use GPX. Is there a list of the LF sections used so I can use the paper maps or is the route actually denoted on the paper maps?
Thank you, Iain
To see which parts of the LF routes are included in the Tour of Holland (Ronde van Nederland), go to: www.nederlandfietsland.nl/fietsroute/lf-ronde-van-nederland/.
Actually, there is also a guide book (Dutch only) with a map of the Tour of Holland. See: www.nederlandfietsland.nl/fietsgidsen/fietsgids-ronde-van-nederland-via-lf-routes/
Hello, just out walking near Amsterdam and was in a collision with a cyclist using the pedestrian lane. What’s the rules on this. Thanks.
Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, cyclists regularly use foot paths and pedestrian lanes, but this is illegal and they can be fined for doing this. I hope you're fine and there is no damage. If there is, it's the cyclist who was in the wrong and should take the responsibility.
Hello, last month (June 2023) myself and my partner visited the Netherlands for the first time. It was also our first cycling trip! We had a wonderful time cycling the Zuiderzee route. The cycling was easy and relaxing compared to here in Scotland, camping places were easy to find and the Dutch people we spoke to were friendly and helpful. We can't wait to return.
Finding this website was a stroke of luck, there is so much information it made planning our trip that much easier which allowed us to be less anxious.
Thank you and keep up the great work.
Thank you for sharing your experiences!!! Great to hear you had such a fantastic time in Holland. There is plenty more to see, so hope you will return soon.
Just completed the LF Waterline route. Did it south to north thinking we’d outwit the wind, but that failed spectacularly ???? It is a fascinating route and I enjoyed seeing all the old forts and the ingenious uses to which they’ve been put to more recently. Wished we’d had more time to spend at the fort in Edam as there was so much to see (and the volunteer guides were so helpful) but we had to dash back for the ferry back to Hull!
Cycling from south to north usually is your safest bet, but here you can never trust the wind:-) Pleased to hear you enjoyed your cycling trip and all the forts along the route. Time is always too short when you're having fun. Hope you manage to return to Holland for more cycling soon!
