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. Langeafstand 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.

LF Maasroute

The Meuse River Route gives a good overview of the Dutch people's relationship with one of the most important rivers in the south of their country: the Meuse. You cycle from Maastricht, where the river (approximately) enters the country, to Hook of Holland, where it flows into the sea. Then a little inland to Maasstad Rotterdam. The signs show you the way.
