Last month I traveled through Holland with two friends on our bikes.
Here a little overview of the trip
As the whole trip was very spontaneous and we didn’t had much time, we every now and then used the train.
We were amazed of how nice the Netherlands actually are. We have been living here for 3 years and haven’t seen anything of it.
In the total costs of travel there are only 6 € for transportation because as working students in the Netherlands we don’t have to pay for public transport. But we had to pay for taking the bikes with us on the train. We didn’t spend money on accommodation because we spelt at places of our friends or used couchsurfing.com.

Holland is a great country for a bike tour. Generally it is very flat and easy to bike, except if you have really bad weather as we had.
Most cities are good connected and if you have a lot of time you can easily bike around the whole Netherlands by covering small distances every day.
