If you are preparing a trip to Holland and you want to live an unforgettable experience, that does not lack in your plan a route in bici by the towns of the IJsselmeer, bathed by the inner sea Zuiderzee. They are closely together of Amsterdam (the first a 15 km), reason why you can arrive directly in bici from the hotels in the city or, you prefer if it, in bus, soon to take bicis there.

The ideal route part of Monnickendam soon to go to Marken, Volendam, Edam and to return there to Monnickendam. It is a very simple route (there are no hills, they are Holland), calm and that is perfect for a day outdoors, far from the activity of the trepidante Amsterdam.

Monnickendam is a calm town of fishermen, with a precious port that is worth the pain to cross before raising bicis. Later bici (red posters) in the direction of Marken is only necessary to follow the indicator of the track. This section is going to be more tuna than you will see in all the day. Disfrútalo. Way surrounded by green, and after water by both sides, while you cross the Zuiderzee by the unique highway that communicates Marken (before it was an island) with the rest of Holland. There is a viewpoint where to stop a little and to observe the precious landscape. There are no words.

Marken is the typical Dutch, of green wood small houses, cows grazing, bicis parked and ambient pueblecito of peace. A jewel. Paseadlo calmly and you enter the one Of Hervormde Kerk, very peculiar church with scale models of fishing boats that hang of the ceiling. If you cross the town and you follow the highway you will arrive at a deflection that puts by the grass and takes until a light and a precious playita.

Later you go to the port (very tuna also, with its sailboats) and take a boat until Volendam. They let also raise bicis. This town has a boisterous port much more. You are useful to prove the herrings or frituras with fish.

From Volendam you follow the way towards Edam, last town before returning to Monnickendam. It is very tuna, with channels and houses that remember to those of Amsterdam, with its typical facades flamencas. The return way is perhaps less interesting, since it reasons parallel to the highway, but you will arrive soon at Monnickendam. In time to give back bicis and to rest the innkeepers!
