Direct Cycle Routes ~ Wagenbuur on NL Bikeways

Thanks to David Hembrow for spotting Mark Wagenbuur's Direct cycle routes in old and new towns...
"...illustrating how direct cycle routes can be accommodated in both new and old towns. [...] cycle routes can be planned to be faster and more direct than the roads in the Netherlands. Some of the better examples are from Assen, Groningen and Houten. Making cycle routes shorter makes cycling a lot more attractive, and is a good part of the reason why the Dutch cycle more than people of any other nation."
