Bicycle highways in the Netherlands – BESV
Bicycle highways in the Netherlands
In no other country is there so much cycling as in the Netherlands. Together, we make around 5 billion trips every year, covering more than 15 billion kilometres. That’s from here to Pluto, and back! This is a good thing, because by cycling a lot we stay healthy and reduce our impact on the environment. It is therefore logical that our government is investing heavily in the bike path network. In recent years, a large number of cycling highways have been constructed and in the coming years, hundreds of kilometres of cycling highways will be added. At BESV we are very much in favour of this development. That’s why we like to tell you more about them and where you can find them.
