Cycling (Street Bikes)

The flat landscapes make the Netherlands an eminently suitable cycling country – there are even more bikes than people! That makes it an extremely popular sport in the Netherlands, with more than 1.5 million competitive cyclists. Cycling (Street Bikes) is taking place at two different locations in Rotterdam, both with excellent facilities and beautiful surroundings. In 2010, the Grand Départ of the Tour de France was held in Rotterdam. The Netherlands has many famous cycling heroes, including Joop Zoetemelk, Tom Dumoulin and Leontien Zijlaard-van Moorsel.
