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.

National Coordination Centre

Fietsplatform

The Dutch National Cycling Platform (Stichting Landelijk Fietsplatform) designed and manages a network of through-going cycle routes throughout the Netherlands, with a total length of more than 4,500 km. All these LF-routes have already been signposted in both directions. The Cycling Platform also publishes practical LF-route guides.

Cycle Routes

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.

Cycle friendly services

With more than 1,100 'Fietsers Welkom!' (Cyclists Welcome!) companies in the Netherlands, there is always a welcoming place nearby.
