Take the bike on a sunny day and cycle to Durgerdam. Take the ferry at Amsterdam central station to Noord and have a nice ride along the IJ river. Durgerdam is a typical old Dutch little village and a great place to escape the chaos of the city.
rent a bike and avoid dangerous Amsterdam city but head for Durgerdam. Endless bike lanes in the country.
Beautiful bike ride in the summer across the most scenic part of Holland. This old little down is situated perfectly along the water and farmer fields. Would definitely recommend to rent a bike in the summer and bike to Durgerdam.
