Cycling Holidays in Holland and Belgium
Is there any other country more suited for cycling than Holland? Colourfully painted windmills stand alongside idyllic canals, cows graze peacefully on green dyke land and picturesque little towns duck down behind the dykes. The Netherlands are the place to go for friends of the flats, canals and Holland bicycles. The sea is never very far away – sand, sea and waves as far as the eye can see.
