Maas Cycle Route (Maasfietsroute)

The Maas Cycle Route is the Dutch section of the International Maas Cycle Route that takes you from the source of the River Maas in France through Belgium and to Hook of Holland. The main route follows the Oude Maas and is made up of sections of the LF3-3 and LF12.

Between the Biesbosch and Vlaardingen there is also an alternative version of the route that follows the Niewe Maas. This will take you via sections of the LF2 and LF11 to Dordrecht, the windmills at Kinderdijk and Rotterdam.

A website with information on the International Maas Cycle Route is to be launched in 2016.
