If wind force is below 4 and temp above 20, do bike!
A round trip Amsterdam - Marken - Volendam - Marken will be around 50km. For me it would be a reasonable and easy thing to do. You are the only one who can decide whether or not it would be reasonable for you.
Thanks! If it's not raining I think we'll go for it.
ASW33 Thank you for the advice! I speak Dutch, so signs should be easy to follow?
Really looking forward to this!
The area is fairly easy to navigate it's almost impossible to get lost you can just bring google maps or similar as back up. Signs will have names of villages /towns on it so language shouldn't make much difference. On Marken go to the lighthouse too on the end of the island and visit one of the tiny villages like rozenwerf.

As you speak Dutch... look under "Meer opties". There you can choose the type of route (shortest, via junctions, via nature, ...)
besides the normal signs (with names of villages on them) you'll also see signs with numbers of the numbered junction system. These will usually lead you via more scenic routes:
Awesome!! Thanks so much for the details. This will help a ton. Haven’t been “home” for 20 years,so this is loooong overdue;)
