Cycling in Holland
Holland, land of bicycles,
 
Holland has more bicycles than residents.
And it shows!
 
There are 40,000 kilometers of cycling routes
which are clearly marked with the ANWBs red and white signs and mushroom shaped posts, indicating the quickest and  or most scenic routes.
 
The Dutch use the bicycle as a means of
transportation rather than just a recreational sport, daily shopping and commute to work.
The moderate climate, the short distances and flat roads all serve to make Holland an excellent cycling friendly country.
 
While cycling through Holland you will notice wide open spaces like polders, beautiful forests bulb
fields, attractive towns and villages.
En route there are plenty of opportunities to have
a rest on the terraces of restaurants and cafes
Specially built picnic-area or anywhere along the
side of the road.
