I don't use a bike for such distances Only inside the city.

And i took some pics of the very rural and straight-out N305. I goes from boomtown Almere to the rural small city of Dronten, right through the artificial Flevoland province. The speed limit is mostly 100km/h, except for the first part between A6 and A27.

The maximum speed is 100km/h, but most traffic is doing 120km/h.

There's some heavy traffic on that route!
By looking at a map, and taking into account the hgeavy traffic I would say that route would justify a motorway, not just a road with some stretches with 3 lanes...

In the seventies, the original goal was to build a motorway. But there isn´t one to date.

Further north, there is a 1x1 stretch, which has a median, and even shoulders! but just one lane per direction.

The A6 north of Emmeloord used to be named A50, the same number as south of Zwolle.

But to Dutch standards, that N50 is very quiet.

The 2+1 road wasn't build for more capacity, but to create safe passing possibilities.

I made again a video, this time of the so called "truck alley", the A1 motorway, a busy motorway between Apeldoorn and the German border.

This video does only cover the 6-laned part from Apeldoorn to Deventer. There weren't so many trucks today, because a long weekend is ahead.

How do you guys like the music which plays during the video? It's hard to find appropriate music everyone likes, and also matches the video. My opinion is that trance/dance/hiphop/rap music isn't appropriate for this kind of videos.

The music this time was good, especially the first track. To be frank, the music you chose in your previous videos sucked That is my opinion, of course, because I am typically biased against pop music.

I actually prefer when music is mixed with real sounds from the surrounding. It gives you a feeling of presence.

A1 - Deventer - Olst - Wijhe - Zwolle

This scenic route travels over the dikes of the IJssel river, one of the larger rivers in The Netherlands. Quite busy in the city of Deventer (97.000), and low traffic on the dike itself.

Zutphen - Eefde - Gorssel - Deventer - Wesepe - Raalte - Lemelerveld - Ommen

This road is one of the main transport axes in the Overijssel and Gelderland provinces, however it doesn't looks like that. Decades ago, this route was supposed to be the A48 motorway, but it was never build. Zutphen is despite it's small size, a busy city. The section Raalte - Ommen has a speed limit of 100km/h, but they want to downgrade it to 80km/h
