Just back: Family cycling in Holland


Easter holidays and we’ve been away.

The girls and I spent last week in Holland, combining a family cycling trip with visits to Maurodam [pictured above] in The Hague, the Miffy house in Utrecht and a Brothers Grimm guesthouse from the Vrienden op de Fiets group of cycling-friendly homestays.

The stories will be out over the coming months – check my Twitter for updates.

Meanwhile, to get a flavour of the trip, here’s a Flickr album of images and a Vimeo page of video clips.

And a parting quote from Arthur Wieffering, the cycling-evangelist founder of The Hague’s Totzo cycle tours and Lola & Bikes cafe:

“Cycling is a piece of freedom. If you cycle every day, then you free your mind.”

* Update: The first piece from this trip is out now in National Geographic Traveller. Read the story, On your bike: a family cycling holiday in Holland.
