Cycling in Netherlands

Cycling in Netherlands: Uithoorn -> Amstelveen ->  Wervershoof -> Zuiderzeemuseum‎ -> Lelystad -> Amstelveen ->  Uithoorn

First day Cycling (17.Sep.2013)-

Uithoorn -> Amstelveen ->  Wervershoof  (Approximately 90 km)

We started early in the morning when it was dark.

First we reached Amstelveen, then we headed towards Hoorn. On the way we searched for a digital camera and finally found one camera shop...

Pictures taken from this camera are shown below - 

We stayed in hotel <>

Second day Cycling (18.Sep.2013)

Wervershoof -> Zuiderzeemuseum‎ -> Lelystad -> Amstelveen ->  Uithoorn (Approximately 130 km)

On the way from Wervershoof to Enkhuizen. This is on Enkhuizen Dyke. Spectacular morning sunlight setting ablaze the whole landscape - water on one side and land on the other. Green grass - fresh and vibrant with morning dew dripping from them. Breathtaking.



Exploring an old civilization in Zuiderzee Museum

 The return journey - From Zuiderzee museum to Amsterdam... consisted of unending cycling on the dyke - with sea on both sides. It was enchanting as well as strenuous.  

On Houtribdijk (NH 302)

The sea breeze in the late evening was making cycling all the more difficult and we soon got inside Almere and avoided the route alongside sea to get rid of the breeze against us. We reached home at 5:00 am in the morning the next day - i.e. 19th Sep'2013.
