Resurfacing a cyclepath, Dutch style. This four kilometre long, four metre wide cycle path is being resurfaced. There's room for two rollers next to each other. The sign reads "Fietspad - dus niet brommen". i.e. "Cyclepath - therefore ... [more]

Resurfacing a cycle path, Dutch style. Another layer is applied to a four kilometre long four metre wide cyclepath.

Resurfacing of a cycle path. This path is 4 m wide and four kilometres long without interruption, providing part of a fast cycle route around Assen. The new surface is several inches of asphalt laid on top of proper foundations. The same ma ... [more]

Bicycle Road (fietsstraat) in Assen. Cyclists are all on one side of the canal while drivers use the other side. This side is a through road only if you ride a bike, and provides part of a direct and very nearly completely car free route fr ... [more]

It's -7 C, there's snow and ice everywhere and has been for days, but the cycle superhighway between Assen and Vries has just occasional patches of difficult to shift ice. ... [more]

It's -7 C this morning, the 1st of December. Quite windy too, the the wind-chill adds considerably to how cold it feels. However, while the canal is frozen, the cycle paths are regularly gritted and salted and remain clear of ice.

Heading into Glimmen near Groningen in the Netherlands. There is snow all around again, but the cycle path is clear. As I took this photo I was gaining quite rapidly on the snow plough that you see in the photo. The cycle path between Gron ... [more]

While the snow has mostly gone, it was -4 C today and the canals were still completely frozen. These children went skating after school, travelling by bike, of course.

Another day, another snowy ride. A picture from the Northern Velomobile Ride, in Drenthe, Netherlands. Entering a village on a nice gritted minor road. Note the 30 km/h speed limit which is in most villages. 60 km/h is the speed limit for c ... [more]

A cycle and pedestrian bridge in Assen. The temperature stays stubbornly below zero and this bridge hasn't been cleared quite so well as it could have been (see other photos tagged snow for a comparison)

Another day, another sweeper. Leaves being removed from a 4 metre wide main cycle path in Assen

To me the cycle path already looked adequately empty of leaves. In the Netherlands cycle paths always do. All the time. However, here comes the leaf sweeper again just to make sure. 3 metre wide secondary cycle path behind a residential ... [more]

Shared Space in Haren. It's a quiet Sunday (no shops open on Sundays), but still the cyclist is about to be overtaken too close by the dark coloured car.

It's the 21st of December, -4 C, about half past mid-day on a working day. The bike racks are more than full as usual. Watch this video to get an idea of how many cyclists you see here, even on cold days. The paths have, of course, all b ... [more]
