Are you cycling the best route?
Do you cycle the same route every day, or have you changed your route now that the last autumn leaves or even the first snowflakes have fallen? The Fietsersbond (Dutch cyclists’ union) route planner offers routes that account for the routes on which salt and grit is spread onto roads, routes with light car traffic, or routes that are easy to cycle. Navigate to www.routeplanner.fietsersbond.nl for the route planner.
You can also specify other preferences for the planner. For example, you can select recreational routes, nature routes, or routes that make use of cycling junctions to enjoy the beauty of autumn to its fullest. The routes are the result of the dedication of volunteers of the Fietsersbond and will continue to be developed.

Zuid-Limburg Bereikbaar is also working on ways to make cycling a more appealing option. For example, we are hard at work on a fast cycling route between Sittard and Maastricht while introducing people to e-bikes and ensuring that there are good bicycle parking facilities available.
