Somewhere on the LF7 between Amsterdam and Utrecht

Comments:

There is a series of bicycle maps from ANWB. They have both local and long distance cycle routes. The Netherlands has great cycle routes, but the signage was not always accurate, so we found it was better to follow the maps. Cycling is so popular that you shouldn’t have a problem finding bike shops, and places to lock up your bike. However, be aware there is lots of local bike thieves.
We travelled the LF7 to Utrecht, onto the LF4 into Arnhem and then the 22 into Germany.
