Since we’ve been in the Netherlands we have taken full advantage of cycling almost everywhere. Compared to South Africa it’s safe and that’s because of the designated bicycle lanes.
One of my favourite routes is cycling from Haarlem to Spaarndam – in fact, we cycled further to see the Buitenhuizerbrug. We made our way back through the Spaarnwoude Golf Course. It took us quite a bit longer than 28 minutes only because we stopped regularly to take photos and cycled slowly to absorb our surroundings.
