Hi, my group and I are biking from Amsterdam-right across the border from Antwerpn, any suggestions?

Easy, biking in the NL is so well structured, paths on the side of the road.
Take a map, alot of water and food and the patience of a saint!

Ok, thanks for asking, I'll probally be doing in summer of 09' (I know its far ahead, but we want planning early). We have about 2weeks total, with about biking to Amsterdam-The Hauge-Rotterdam-across the border from Antwerpn. With about 1 night in each city, (2 in Amsterdam). There will be about 12-15 of us.

cool trip!
you can buy books over here (and alot of other places i assume!) about biking in NL. there are tonnes of bike paths, theyre considered a normal part of traffic here so you can get anywhere with the bike... some bigger places tho, id recommend camping a little bit outside of town and taking public transport in, as a group your size will be a bit of a problem with all the cars/busses/trams/other bikers! You should def go and see the Keukenhof, which is a garden in Lisse which is very beautiful, theyre only open for a limited amt of time, but its sometime in the summer and its a really nice relaxing day outside!! there are crowds sometimes tho... its got every kinda tulip you can think of!!
