Cheers for the tips. My trip itinerary has changed I think. I think I'm going to do it with a cycling buddy and stretch it out to maybe 4 nights with 50 - 70 mile days. The most he has ridden in a day is 55 miles but seeing as Holland is flat, an extra few won't kill him. My biggest dilemma at present would be whether to take our bikes on Easyjet at £40 each way pp or hire out there. How much would I be expecting to pay for a decent road bike for 4 days hire?
