Teams must fly to Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Upon arrival, teams must travel by train to Amsterdam Centraal railway station. Once there, teams must find Melkmeisjesbrug to search for their next clue.

Choice A: Hoist It
Teams must use a traditional rope and pulley system to hoist five pieces of furniture up a typical Amsterdam apartment. Once all of the items loaded in the apartment, the head tenant would receive their next clue

Kynt & Vyxsin, Lorena & Jason, Nathan & Jennifer, Shana & Jennifer, and TK & Rachel chose this task.

Choice B: Hunt It
Teams must made their way on foot several blocks to a bicycle parking lot called Fietsflat to search through thousands of bicycles for two bikes tagged with a specific color designated in their clue. After finding their bikes, teams had to ride them five miles to an attendant who would give them their next clue.

Azaria & Hendekea, Kate & Pat, Marianna & Julia, Nicolas & Donald, and Ron & Christina chose this task.

Teams must travel by bus to Ransdorp and find the marked field to search for their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to play a sport called fierljeppen by completing a single vault over a 12 feet (3.7 m) wide irrigation ditch and landing on both feet on the marshy grass at the other side. Once the vaulting ditch is cleared, they must vault back to the other side to pick up their next clue and vault back with their partner.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must choose a bakfiets and ride to Durgerdam Yacht Club to check in.

For coming in first, Lorena & Jason won a sport bike for each racer.
