Lasting anywhere between half an hour to forty five minutes, it is a lot of fun and nowhere near as hard core as <a href="/contikipedia/articles/mountain-biking-hopfgarten">mountain biking</a> in <a href="/contikipedia/articles/austria">Austria</a>. It&#8217;s an easy ride as you travel through the Dutch village and it really gets you in the mood for doing as the Dutch do. On most tours this great way to see the famous cheese-producing village and breath the fresh Dutch sea breeze.</p> <p>The Amsterdam bike ride is weather dependent and is included on most Europe summer <a href="/contikipedia/articles/time-out-superior-hotel-tours">Time Out/Superior/Hotel Tours</a> and <a href="/contikipedia/articles/concept-budget-tours">Concept/Budget Tours</a> staying two nights in Amsterdam while on <a href="/contikipedia/articles/camping-tours">Camping Tours</a> it is a great optional excursion.</p> <p><img src="http://downloads.contiki.com/contikipedia/europe/lucky/people/bikes.jpg" class="leftwise" alt="" /></p>
