Due to the great popularity of our Amsterdam cycling holiday, we're offering a 'second bite at the cherry' for those unable to make 'Amsterdam One'. This second tour will include a two night stay in Amsterdam - giving you more time to soak up the sights and sounds of this vibrant European city.

THE HOLIDAY WILL ONLY PROCEED IF WE ACHIEVE A MINIMUM NUMBER OF 25 PARTICIPANTS. To indicate your interest, or if you require further information, please email us at: amsterdamtwo@bike-events.com

With a new route for 2014, join us and enjoy cycling along tree-lined canals, through pretty villages and atop the dykes of the Dutch countryside (passing plenty of windmills too, of course!) on our way to the bright lights of Amsterdam for a two night stay before heading for the sun, surf and sparkling sands of the Dutch coastline.

Travelling Monday 4th August, the overnight ferry crossing onboard Stena Line's newly refurbished 'Superferry', with its comfortable cabins, two restaurants, two bars and a cinema, provides a great onboard experience meaning you're fresh from the start of this great cycling holiday. Riding through picturesque and varied countryside, you'll be welcomed with typically warm Dutch hospitality at the beautiful, clean and friendly hostels. Accommodation is in en-suite shared hostel rooms

"Safely back from Amsterdam... We rode 150 miles on the tandem - 50 miles in one day! Thanks to Bike Events for a superb trip." Gus Ferguson.

"I spent last week on the Amsterdam bike ride and I just wanted to say thank you to all the organising crew for a fantastic holiday! Weather was great, cycling and scenery was superb and there was a great sense of bonhomie & good feeling amongst all the cyclists. I'll definite recommend your events & tours to my friends and, hopefully, I'll be able to join you again on future trips." A. C.
