10 of the best: family cycling holidays in Europe
1/10 Amsterdam South, Holland
Amsterdam has 513km of dedicated cycle paths and several bike-only bridges with around 10,000 bicycles parked around Amsterdam Central Station each day. A great half-day ride into the leafy suburbs leads through the lesser-known Amsterdam Zuid district, visiting the stately Apollolaan area and the verdant public space of Vondelpark. Pick up an illustrated guide to the self-guided route from the Amsterdam Tourist Office and allow 2.5 hours to explore.
