Dolce Tempo Journey from Amsterdam to Bruges

E-bike through these two bicycle-loving countries, where the bike paths are bustling and the roads are nearly an afterthought. You couldn’t design a better place to ride if you tried. From the backdrop of windmills and canals to the pancake-flat fields that are like riding into a Dutch School oil painting. End the day in a quaint village with a mouthwatering piece of chocolate or a draught of local beer, and you’ll understand why this is the land of wielersport.

Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Navigating Bike Paths

The Dutch and Belgians are famous for their love of bikes. And that love of bikes has created an amazing network of bike paths and routes that extend throughout each country. Many of the paths we utilize on this trip are the equivalent of scenic byways, linking quaint villages and big cities alike. Navigating these intricate bike routes may require more attention than usual—expect some stops to ensure you're on the right track!—as well as increased attention to cycling etiquette, laws and traffic as you share the "road" with the many locals going about their business by bike. Note that these paths vary in road surface, with some sections of gravel, dirt and cobblestones.
