Floating bus stops with shelters on narrow islands in Stadskanaal. A two-way segregated pavement cycleway goes past behind the bus stop. There is no pavement at the bus stop on the opposite (canal) side of the road. See also #59413.

As many people are skating today as cycling. Photo shows the correct height for a windscreen to protect children from weather.

Cycle paths are also useful for joggers

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.

Sign for a dog walking path where dogs may be allowed off their leads. It isn't only cyclists who have segregation in the Netherlands. There are also dog walking paths like this, fishing paths, walking paths etc. Rarely does a cyclist ha ... [more]

A war memorial in the woods. I think it translates as "There is a knowledge of each other that time and distance overcomes". The names are all Dutch, and the 8th of April is not very long before this area was freed.

A gas pipeline is marked by these signs. This part of the Netherlands is on top of the largest underground gas field anywhere in Western Europe. Watch the video to see the marvellous rural bike path that this is next to.

Busy street in Groningen.

A less good than average treatment of a tunnel under a motorway, but still creditable as allowing cyclists to continue at a good pace without giving way to anything at all. The video continues to cross the bridge shown from the other sid ... [more]

A very urban bike path going around the back of some busy streets, and what a pleasure it is to use it, despite the temperature being -5 C. Assen in the Netherlands, 22nd of December.

It's the 21st of December, before mid-day on a work-day and -4 C. Assen in the winter. Plenty of bikes around. The white between the tiles is salt. All the paths are well salted and it's quite safe to cycle.

Memorial to the crew of Lancaster Mk III JB 154 which crashed at this site near Assen in the Netherlands on the 20th of October 1943 at 22:45 when returning from Leipzig. The grey path is a smooth cycle path to the memorial. You can also ... [more]

Nice little country lane. It's quite difficult to find anywhere without separate provision for cyclists, but it does exist where the speed limit is low and there is virtually no traffic. This road provides access to a couple of farm buil ... [more]
