  1. Thinking about some casual touring/travel in the Southern parts of .nl early this summer. There
    is a very nice route planner at http://planner.holland.com/fietsroutes/RouteTypeChoice.jsp - in
    Dutch though, but definitely worth checking out. I also have some other maps, but not
    specifically for biking...

    Which Dutch cycling map would you recommend? Seems there are multiple maps/guidebooks for sale in
    the online store.

    Hello Rista,

    The best series of maps is "Fietsatlas Nederland", which was published last week(!). So it's
    up-to-date, bu also complete and very accurate
    (1:75.000). All (yes: *all*) bicycle routes and route networks are clearly indicated, and there are
    a lot of them in the Netherlands. It's in Dutch, but because it's mostly maps this
    shouldn't be a problem. And you can ask almost everybody for directions; a lot of people
    speak English, so there you have an excuse to mingle with the locals. ;-) Price: 39.95
    Euro, more details (in Dutch): http://basic.anwb.nl/basic/sh_a605581.htm The book is
    available in all ANWB stores, large bookstores and department stores.

    And don't forget to visit the Netherlands page on my website:

    Useful links on that page: http://www.hsa.lr.tudelft.nl/~bvo/fiets/nlbybike.htm

    Have a great trip!

    We used "Cycling the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg", by Katherine and Jerry Widing. I would
    recommend the northern route, Amsterdam to Texel. Afterwards, we headed back to Amsterdam, then down
    to Utrecht where we took the train to Antwerp. Back on our bikes across Belgium to Brugge. -howard
