The Netherlands and water, the Dutch and the bicycle. Indisputably linked. The Hoek van Zuid-Holland is the perfect region to discover this water-rich province by bike. The many surrounding waters have provided prosperity for centuries, but also threats. You will experience the battle against the water at the end of the Delta Works; the Maeslant Barrier. This storm surge barrier is located on the Nieuwe Waterweg, one of the busiest waterways in the world. This gateway to the Port of Rotterdam has no fewer than 80,000 ship movements per year. You can discover all about this in the National Towage Museum in Maassluis. The vast polders and ditches in Midden Delfland are a Dutch oasis of tranquility. Experience the greenhouses in Westland from the bike and enjoy the stalls along the road.
