Nice pics, Timon. I like those bike signs, they are all across Switzerland too, here we don't have them. Where did you go from that end of the bike path?

Cool snowy video, Chris. There's even a tunnel! And that overpass at the end is übercool.

Turn left onto the grass and then make a U-turn onto the viaduct

A traffic warning has been issued. They expect 500+ kilometers of traffic jam (tomTom: 1000 - 1500 km range probably) tomorrowmorning.

That's just madness... when these politicans and ecoterrorists will understand that new routes and widenings are needed

Are you sure?

In the Netherlands we fortunately have a lot of sings for cycling, although some of them contain..well, a lot of information. Fortunately it is easier to stop with a bike for reading on a crossing than with a car





As you see, we even have 'roadnumbers' for cyclists. These numbers here are in the Rotterdam area. Route no 10 for example runs from Ridderkerk to Maasvlakte (the Northsea-coast).
In the are there are informational signs with the routes listed on them. Click here for an example (3,2 Mb, 4000x3000). I really like cycling this way in my country. You'll find those signs everywhere in the Netherlands.

The advantage if cycling is that you sometimes can get close to the motorway to make photos like this one I made some months ago at the Heinenoordtunnel (which was closed due to an accident).


Also very well known in the Netherlands are the "paddestoelen"-signs. A "paddestoel" is a mushroom. For example:


As you have seen on the previous picture, some "LF-Routes" exist. Those are cycling routes for long distances. A sign can look like this:


And at last: The interchanges ("knooppunten") for cyclists: You can buy a map where the several interchanges are indicated. You can choose a route and just hop from one interchange to another. Such signs look like this:


So far the lesson "Cycling in the Netherlands for dummies" More pictures can be found here.

There is a sign of the LF-7 in Abcoude indicating Alkmaar (70 km) and Maastricht (230 km)

And on my way to school I follow the LF-7 for a few kms

A1 in Wintertime!



I didn't drive in my own car, so I had to hold the camera in one hand, and signal+steering with the other hand

Nice pics, Chris. Much more snow than we had over here

By the way, your descriptions are in Dutch

-edit- That was probably for the thread in the Dutch forums

Dutch and German are quite "ähnlich", yes. However, as a Dutchman you should be carefull using Dutch words in German. The Dutch word "bellen", for instance (which means "to call") means "to moo" in German. So when a Dutchman says "Ich belle nach Hause" he will see some weird German faces
