    My June departure is approaching, I'll try again: My family is planning on a 2 week cycling vacation
    in the netherlands this summer; 2 adults, kids 12 & 14. We will ride for about 10 days and do 35- 40
    miles/ day, say 400 miles or 675 km total.We fly from L.
    A. and start and finish in Amsterdam.

    I've received the Netherlands cycling map. We could take two of the national mapped loops, or do
    something more unique. No camping for us, We'll stay in hotels.

    Any suggestions for especially fabulous towns/ locations/ Hotels or tours we should go to? Thanks.

    Two highlights come to mind for me: -- The "Deltaworks" site, south of Rotterdam. Quite amazing
    engineering, and a nice visitor center here. -- Some of the Islands in the Wadden Zee (Texel,
    Vlieland, Ameland, Terschillingen, Shiermonnikoog); peaceful and relaxed, though probably busy in
    the summer.

    I bicycled 18 days and 1440km through the Netherlands a decade ago. My trip report is:
