We will meet under the Water Tower near Cafe Restaurant Amsterdam. I live right around the corner and will tell you a little about the neighborhood. After that we will take 10-15 minutes to make sure everyone is comfortable on their bike. Our first stop is Amsterdam’s most iconic windmill. From there we head to Westerpark and check out its beautiful art sculptures. Just behind Westerpark we'll visit a neighborhood called Spaarndammerbuurt. It is famous for its architectural style called The Amsterdam School, which greatly inspired Gaudí. Next we will visit the Houthavens (the former Lumber Port) which is currently under transition from an industrial and polluting part of town into a sustainable residential area. From there we'll take the ferry over the river IJ and head to the NDSM wharf in Amsterdam-North. We'll see loads of street art, graffiti and pop-up art from local prospective artists. Crossing back over the river IJ we will head to a completely untouched part of the old city. There we will see the canals and old canal houses in their authentic setting without so many people around. Finally, we'll head back to Westerpark and end the tour with a refreshing drink.

My name is Pim and I invite you to join me on a wonderful 4 hour bike tour through Amsterdam. I'll take you to some of my personal favorite spots away from the crowded tourist areas. I am passionate about art, history, culture and anything out of the ordinary, whether it be people, things or concepts. In my free time, I enjoy taking my road bike to explore the greater Amsterdam area. I have lived and worked in Amsterdam as a local tour guide and story teller for many years. I can't wait to share my passion about Amsterdam and my love for cycling with you. So hop on!
During the bike tour we will see a nice mix of art, architecture, history and my personal favourite hang outs in Amsterdam. We start with Amsterdam's iconic windmill. I love Westerpark for its many art sculptures. Spaarndammerbuurt showcases some of the finest architectural wonders of The Amsterdam School. Later we will cross the IJ river to check out the NDSM warf where many local underground artist come together. I love this place for its vibe.
