It’s a 40 km bike ride, around 24 miles and a great mix of different typical dutch landscapes. the Leiden-Keukenhof bike tour is definitely worth it and a great idea for a family outing as well. See for yourself.

What I love about the Leiden-Keukenhof bike tour is what happens when the first flower field is spotted. In the first part, from Leiden till the lake area Kagerplassen you see canals, windmills,  monumental houses. Here and there a beautiful garden full of spring flowers.

The power flower effect!

The first flower field comes into sight a 30 minutes cycling from Leiden.  A sparkle in the eyes, the corners of the mouth curl into a smile and suddenly the cycling seems to go much easier. Spotting the first flower field, breathing in the fresh air mixed with the perfume of hyacinth, it gives energy. That is thé power flower effect!
