BAC Bike and Barge - Netherlands 2014
April 24 - Fifth Riding Day - Leiden - Keukenhof - Haarlem
We had another breakfast cruise this morning from Leiden to Lisse. We then mounted our bicycles and rode for a couple of miles to Keukenhof. This was the MAJOR destination for our tour. The tulips in this Garden of Europe were in full bloom. We spent several hours meandering through its 79 acres taking photos and being amazed at the different varieties of tulips and how well they were displayed.
After our walking tour of Keukenhof, we got onto our bicycles and continued our ride into Haarlem. We rode past colorful tulip fields and had an afternoon snack in a forested park. Once in the city, we had to ride carefully and close to our leader to find our way to our dock.
