Cycling infrastructure should not only be good on the main routes, you need to be able to cycle everywhere in a city. When the Dutch designate certain routes as main cycle routes it doesn’t mean that you cannot cycle safely on other roads, you can. All main thoroughfares have cycling infrastructure and you can also cycle very well in the traffic calmed 30km/h zones. This week I show you a recently updated cycleway on a through route in ʼs-Hertogenbosch, that is not a part of the city’s main cycle route network, but that does connect to it on both ends.
