Recreational cycling

Cycling can be a good break from the hard studying. Alone or with friends, for a short trip or a longer one to explore a new part of the country!

Recreational Cycle Network

Wageningen is linked to the large cycle network in the region ‘Veluwe’. It consists of 1600 kilometers of tracks in 19 municipalities. The cycle network has been developed in such a way that you can cycle from node to node, without having to consult complicated maps. All cycle track crossings have a specific number. Also, information boards were put down to help you choose your own route.
