Around Utrecht

Utrecht, Netherlands

Loop - Easy

An easy ride around the Dutch city of Utrecht in mostly rural areas. Experience the well-maintained bike lanes and the typical flat Dutch landscape. On the east, it will follow part of the Dutch Water Line, a 19th century defence line including water and forts and in 2021 added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ride also goes by the Campus of the University of Utrecht and up north through some old peatlands. In the west, the ride goes through the Maxima Park, named after the Dutch Queen in a new area of the city. In this Central Park-Style area, you will meet a lot of cyclists, pedestrians and in-line skaters. Before you exit the park, you will see a reconstruction of a Roman fort, and you may want to watch out for Romans! The final part follows the Amsterdam Rhine Channel to the South.
