I'm all set to go cycling in the Netherlands in September but I have questions.
1. Should I fly my own bike over there or rent one while I'm over there? I'm thinking of flying the Cannondale R700 over there. I'm worried about its suitability as a touring bike. More importantly, I'm worried about bicycle thief. I heard that's really bad in the Netherlands. I don't want to be tied down by worries over my bike while I'm over there.
2. If I do fly my bike over there, which airline should I use and how expensive is it to fly a bike over there? We'll have be making a few days stop in Iceland at the beginning. The Iceland part isn't cycling related though.
3. How available is the "Friends of Bicycle" network? Can we rely on being able to find lodging through them?
Thanks for the help.
