体验内容

Your cycling adventure starts in the historic town centre. I will make sure everyone feels comfortable with their bikes and shortly brief you about what you can expect. You will ride in a small group at a relaxed pace.

Utrecht has much to offer. Following quiet paths and alleyways we will make our way through Utrecht, showing you many interest sights and telling great stories.

Nevertheless, I will take you off the beaten track. On the outskirts of town, we will stop at the forts of Lunetten. Here I will tell you all about the New Dutch Waterline, our largest national monument nominated for Unesco’s world heritage list. As we continue, I will show you group shelters and explore other forts as well.

However, it is not only about forts and history. You will ride in the green countryside with imposing farmhouses, rich flora & fauna and great views. You might see a hare, barnacle goose, kingfisher, or even a roe deer. Depending on its opening hours, we can visit an eco-friendly farm.

About halfway, we’ll take a coffee break at a picturesque location near the water. This place is often visited by locals, but foreigners are rarely seen. Toilet facilities are available here.

On our way back, I will show you some impressive examples of early 20th-century architecture, such as the Rietveld Schröder House (Unesco). After nearly 25km and 4hrs, we’ll be back where it all started.

My co-Host Marcus van den Boom and I once were boring bankers. In our new life, we are passionate cyclists, travellers and storytellers with a profound interest in nature, culture and history. For years, we have been organizing amazing tours on self-made bamboo bikes in Asia. Now we bring our experience, tall stories and passion to our hometown Utrecht.

Most tours show you just the city highlights, we prefer to do things differently. We guide you to the beautiful countryside just outside Utrecht. Knowing the area by heart, we unveil its hidden gems including secluded forts, imposing farmhouses and rich flora & fauna. Moreover, your unique vintage bike has been completely refurbished by ourselves, offering you the best ride in town. We love showing you our favourite places by using quiet roads and secret alleys. We make history fun!

体验地点

Most Utrecht tours just show the city highlights, we also go to the beautiful countryside.

We visit several monumental forts and take a short nature trail through the abundant vegetation.

Subject to opening times and season, a farm visit could be included.

A break at a beautiful tea shop, nicely located near the river. Popular with locals.

We’ll pass the Rietveld Schröder Huis and other great examples of 20th-century architecture.
