Traditional Costume Trail

(41,0 km)
The Traditional Costume Trail is a varied bike route where you cycle through a real Dutch landscape of birds and bees and magnificent panoramas.

You will come across a couple of very old Dutch dress styles. On the Marken peninsula for example, one of the few places in the Netherlands where, only on special occasions, traditional costumes are still worn. Nowadays, only a few older inhabitants of Marken still proudly wear their traditional costume every day, though guides regularly brighten up the streets with their traditional costumes as they give their tours. Thankfully so, because the Marker traditional costume is beautiful. It is multi-colored and richly decorated with handmade embroidery and still based on sixteenth century fashion.

How it works
You cycle the trail with the help of the so-called junction system. A junction is a uniquely numbered spot where two cycle paths cross each other. The trails in this book are set out on the basis of these numbers. The only thing you have to do is follow the numbers in the sequence in which they are presented. You can recognise the junctions by the green and white signs along the way.

How do I get there?
Public transportation from Amsterdam CS. Bus line 314 in the direction of Hoorn. Get off at 'Bus station Edam'. 

From the bus stop to the bicycle rental: Walk in the direction of restaurant Hof van Holland. Walk over the bridge and take a right onto the Lingerzijde. Follow the road to the left and stay on the Lingerzijde, this road leads to the Kleine Kerkstraat. Take a right at the end of this street onto the Spuistraat and right away take left to the Spui. Take the first street to the left onto the Grote Kerkstraat. After one minute you'll see the bicycle rental on your left. 

From the bicycle rental to the first junction: Return to the restaurant Hof van Holland. On this streetcorner you will find junction 95.
