30 years of European bicycle routes by volunteers

“Europafietsers” (Europe Cyclists) is a non-profit organization of volunteers only. We want to inspire people of all ages to undertake cycling holidays in Europe. Our Long Distance Cycle Guides describe carefully designed routes on quiet roads.

These routes [Fietsweb©, see below] going in all directions, form a network over all off Europe, bringing you to various interesting places.

We apologize for not offering you a fully translated package, as both our website and the guides are in Dutch.

However, we hope to make our booklets useful for you by giving a translation of the most commonly used words, symbols and abbreviations that are needed to find your way.

In the download file symbols.pdf  we present you the symbols and abbreviations in the right format to cut out, and glue to the little flap at the backside cover of the guide. In rest.pdf  you find less frequently used terms and wordings.

The text describing landscape and cultural highlights, is only provided in Dutch. We nevertheless hope you will enjoy cycling with our “Europafietsers” guides and await yourcomments......! (below)


Please,  try a cycling holiday in Europe .......!

Fietsweb map

Our famous "Fietsweb" will help you to find your way.

The Fietsweb is a spiders web of documented cycle paths covering Europe ,
based on the works of mainly Dutch origin: 

Spokes penetrate Europe from the Netherlands;

Rings form circles centered around the Netherlands in ever increasing distances;

Knots between the former give you the opportunity to plan round trips.

The right hand sketch illustrates the general idea =>
The shape resembles a true spider web.


The map shows you all
routes that combine
to the actual Fietsweb. [Click  to enlarge]


N.B. For those of you just wanting to cycle in the Netherlands [Holland] there is a very good, dedicated website : holland-cycling
