More info about Mountain Biking in Netherlands:

In spite of its small size – just 41,873 square kilometers (16,167 square miles) – the Netherlands boast ample mountain biking opportunities. From half-day trips to week-long adventures, there is plenty to see and experience in the Low Country. Among the favorites for those looking to take a longer trip is heading on a five day tour of the country’s northern peninsula. As you circle around the peninsula from Alkmaar, you will be able to see the country’s famed dikes and canals, the sand dunes on the North Sea and visit the quaint towns of Edam and Volendam, famous for their clogs and cheese. For those individuals with less time on their hands, experiencing the countryside on a half-day cycling adventure is another great option. The mostly flat 50 kilometers (30 mile) Utrechtse Heuvelrug to Lage Vuursche takes cyclists through the verdant rolling hills and beautiful woodlands at the center of the country
