Haven/Harbour bike routes

Some of you might know Amsterdam has a deep-sea port, on the west side of the City. If you are curious to find out more about this often forgotten part of the city hop on your bike and start to explore with the new bike routes. The city has laid out four bike routes each with a special thematic topic displaying all the 'particularities' of port life. The maps are in Dutch, but are quite detailed about directions so as long as you know links en rechts (left and right) you should be fine.

Most interesting is the Ruigoord Route which brings you to the artists colony Ruigoord which has resisted the expansion of the harbour since the 1960s.
