WHAT’S THE WEATHER

AREA
INFORMATION

It's not called the lowlands for nothing with half the country being less than a metre above sea level. You can be assured of almost entirely flat riding from place to place and the experience of crossing the Dutch polders, land reclaimed from the sea and which help provide the Netherlands with such fertile land. 

Weather
INFORMATION

Given the country's small size, there is very little variation in Holland's climate. The best period to travel is late Spring to early autumn. Expect breezier conditions as you ride closer to the coast.

Your bike will come equipped with essential tools for you to repair a puncture, replace an inner tube or fix a slipped chain.
