Cycling from the hook of holland to cologne

Hi, I'm new to warmshowers and the solo touring experience, I'll be travelling on the ferry to the hook of holland and will spend my first night in Utrech. When I look at the map there are several routes. Which route would you recommend. I prefer off road scenic route and since the ferry gets to Holland at 8 am i'll have plenty of time to travel the 100 km or so. Any advice greatly appreciated, thank you fellow cyclists!!!!
Also... what is the best app for android for offline maps? I won't have internet in Holland

I use Osmand offline maps for android. Also, Googlemaps let you save maps to make them available offline (mymaps from the android app). But honestly, in Holland you could do without any map and use the various cycle route networks.

Route: http://en.routeplanner.fietsersbond.nl/

Make sure to select a route type from the drop down menu. Alternatively, you could use the junction network which lets you connect the intersection nodes of your choice to create a route.

Or, use the long-distance cycle route network. Take the LF1 up to the Hague, and then LF4 east towards Utrecht. http://en.nederlandfietsland.nl/en/long-distance-cycle-routes

Thank you!

Thank you Jelte!!, I'll try google maps and see how it goes, really it is just for the first bit from Hook of HOlland to Utrecht then it shouldn't be a problem, For that stretch the route planners recommend several routes. Which one would you use?

You will see Rotterdam, Kinderdijk and Gouda as tourist attractions.
