The national long-distance cycle network (LF routes) is a series of routes intended for cycling holidays. Together they form a network that takes you all across Holland. The LF routes are signposted in both directions. They are also marked on the online cycle route planner and every decent cycle map.

How does it work?

As they form a network, you can use the LF routes in different ways:

  • Independent route
  • Use the network to make your own route
  • Some routes connect with European Cycle Routes, e.g. Rhine Cycle Route and North Sea Cycle Route

Signposting

The LF routes are marked with green and white signposts in both directions. The signposts can vary per route and area you're cycling in.
