The Dutch are bike-loving people, so it’s no surprise that there are plenty of opportunities for cycling in the area around the Defence Line of Amsterdam. Long and short-distance bike routes take you along different parts of the Defence Line. On the way you can enjoy green meadows, scenic dikes, flat polder landscapes and historic windmills.
