The Clogs & Windmills tour will take you to the lovely city of Haarlem, just East of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The rides will let you explore the part of the Netherlands that is actually called Holland: the provinces of North and South Holland. You will be able to see clogs and windmills, as that where Holland is famous for. And although this part of the Netherlands is completely flat and even most of it below sea level, there is some nice riding to do over dikes and backroads, bringing you to some #1 tourist highlights in the Netherlands!

Ride 3 is the longest ride of the Clogs and Windmills tour: 190 km / 120 miles. There are plenty of possibilities to “cut it short”, but of course we do recommend to do the whole ride. The first stop is at the capital of cheese, with a nice walk around the city and of course if you want a coffee or tea in one of the cafes on the market square. For lunch, the ride will take you to a village you would not have found yourself, with a true gem just around the corner. There is a restaurant, but if you like to bring your own lunch for a picnic, this is the perfect spot to do so. You can have lunch with a view! And of course, the ride will end in the Haarlem area to enjoy another night on this Clogs and Windmills tour.
