Planning another holiday!
Saddle Skedaddle made it very easy from the start. Making it simple to organise our holiday and offering good advice about travelling there. This put our minds at ease straight away as this was my families first cycling holiday. We were told not to expect luxury but were pleasantly surprised to find our cabin on the barge spacious with good quality beds, en suite, air con and plenty of space for storage. Definitely going on another cycling holiday. Bitten well and truly by the cycling holiday bug!
As seen in the press...
Free from troublesome gradients, Holland is the perfect choice for family escapes by pedal power. Saddle Skedaddle runs a regular “Windmills & Golden Beaches” group excursion specifically aimed at travellers with children. It takes eight days to progress through North Holland, the peninsula and province that juts out above Amsterdam, ticking off the coastal hotspot of Hoorn, the port of Den Helder and Texel island, with its windswept dunes.
The Telegraph (June 2015)
We could not fault the service provided by Ton and Annie, Ton in particular as he had led groups many times before, whereas it was the first time for Annie. She made up for lack of knowledge with lots of enthusiasm. The captain and the catering staff were great too.
Cabins were a little small but plenty of storage space with air con and free wifi. Lovely lounge/dining/communal area. All meals were delicious and plentiful too.
Loved Texel, a lovely island, like the Netherlands in miniature.

‘Bruges has always been on my list of places to see, so starting a Bike and Barge trip to Amsterdam from here seemed to be ideal… … it was lovely, from a luxury barge to great leisurely cycling! But meeting the group in Brugge was only the beginning of what was to become a superb week ...
