Anyone who has ever been on a bicycle in the Netherlands knows the special feeling:
Everything is different here - and the bicycle has the right of way. On average, people here make more journeys by bicycle than in any other country in Europe. Especially in the southeast of the Netherlands, the often quoted Dutch Switzerland, the love for bicycles is particularly strong. Because once you have mastered the famous climbs of the Amstel Gold Race, you will take this region to your heart forever.
During a Pannenkoeken stop in Valkenburg, you can observe the countless cycling enthusiasts, whether on road bikes, mountain bikes or e-bikes.
Minor spoiler alert: The ramps of the famous Amstel Gold Race have driven many a professional cyclist to despair. Reason enough to head for them on the 3RIDES festival tours as well.
Foothills of the Ardennes, cycling tradition, legendary routes, waffles and frites.
