The ultimate guidebook to happy cycling

There is no happier cyclist than a Dutch cyclist. This is not only because The Netherlands is mainly flat, but also because the Dutch enjoy the most extensive cycle network in the world. This small country has over 25,000 miles of high quality traffic free cycle routes (!) and on many occasions cyclists have priority over motorised traffic. This is a cyclist’s paradise; whether you are a novice cyclist, want to give children a safe and fun cycling experience or want to do serious mileage in a unique cycling minded environment; the ultimate destination for the perfect cycling holiday!


The guidebook Cycling The Netherlands - The very best routes in a cyclist’s paradise contains over 700 kms (430 miles) of high quality cycling routes with full route descriptions, high profile mapping, visitor information and accommodation suggestions. Whether you fly to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport or arrive on a ferry from the United Kingdom, clear and concise travel information is included.
