The Netherlands

The Netherlands has a reputation of being a great cycling destination. There are even more bicycles than people here! The infrastructure is geared to cyclists: many roads have separate, dedicated cycle lanes for exclusive use by cyclists. Cyclists also have their own crossings and their own traffic lights. Landelijke Fietsroutes or LF-routes, long-distance routes, constitute a national network of approximately 4,500 kilometres, signposted in two directions. Some LF-routes are part of international Eurovelo routes: the EuroVelo 2, 4, 12 and 15.
