This Collection takes you back to my hometown, back to my roots in Breda in the Netherlands. I’ve lived in this city for 18 years, but only started to explore by bike a few years ago. These Tours bring together the most beautiful places around Breda – they’re my favourite routes for good reason.
Around Breda, there’s a great network of bike paths ranging from smooth tarmac to hard-packed gravel and quiet car-free lanes. You ride through spectacular surroundings on winding roads through woodlands and meadows such as the Strijbeekse Heide and the Chaamse Bossen south of Breda. There is a good chance that you will spot some deer, hares and birds of prey along the way, especially early in the morning or just at the end of the day.
I’ve also included gems such as the Slingerdreef (a lovely wide road through the woods), the Bels Lijntje (a cycle path over a former railway line between Tilburg and Turnhout) and the path along the Mark, a beautiful little river that flows through the Markdal.
With its picturesque surroundings, natural beauty and wealth of wildlife, this Collection contains some of my favorite cycling routes around Breda. Will you join me on the ride? 💚

This route is slightly different from the others in this Collection. Instead of a loop from Breda, this is a 100-kilometer route that takes you to a completely different part of the Netherlands, namely to Veenendaal on the edge of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug.
If you drive 100 kilometers to the north from…
