Province of Gelderland
The province of Gelderland has an unprecedented diversity in landscapes to enjoy. This bicycle friendly and accessible region focusses both on the maintenance of the Dutch cycling heritage and on the development of creative cycling innovations. One of the best practices is the realisation of fast cycling routes: direct, comfortable and safe routes over longer distances with priority for cyclists. Two recognizable Dutch bike manufactures are situated in this region: Gazelle and Van Hulsteijn. Besides, the region hosts several bicycle facilities such as the bicycle museum Velorama and Dutch Bicycle Centre, an incubator for cycling oriented businesses.
