In "The other Holland", it is not only the inhabitants who are particularly fond of cycling (they have already voted the region one of the best cycling regions in the Netherlands on several occasions). Many day-trippers also take to the saddle to discover the region for themselves. Wide cycle paths and a bicycle junction system extending over almost six thousand miles (ten thousand kilometers) invite you to extensive two-wheel tours. On the way, you will pass a wide variety of landscapes. The river landscape is transformed into historic Hanseatic towns, heaths, meadows, wooded banks, and forests.
