What is a bicycle highway (fietssnelweg)?

Since 2006 the Netherlands has over 20 special bicycle highways connecting cities, with 28 more under construction. Other countries are creating them too now that the E-Bike is uprising. Germany has also connected 10 cities & 4 universities with their 62 mi cycling highway, removing 50.000 cars from the road! Many other of the bigger cities in Germany are now also researching the possibilities. We say YES to cycling to work!

Though as much as we support the creation of these cycling highways you might only see a glimpse of them, as for our tours we prefer our carefully selected scenic cycling routes.
