After a selection of green, quiet and hard-surfaced routes, we’ve mapped out loop-like, interconnecting cycle routes. The routes that have been coloured green, red, purple, brown or yellow meet for 90% the standard “green, quiet and hard-surfaced”. For 10% of the routes we had to look for alternatives in certain regions. All routes are linked with orange-coloured routes that for 80% meet the standard “hard-surfaced, quiet and green”. All these routes build up an easy-reference cycle route network that makes it possible; depending on weather conditions, time, fitness or the presence of small children, to expand or adapt every cycle route easily by switching from one route to another. In other words: if you follow the same colour, you’re fine. These coloured cycle routes can easily be followed, thanks to the many streets names, quite a lot of symbols and the use of a large scale, namely 1: 50 000 (1 cm on the route-map=500 meters on the ground).
This series of maps is unique in the colouring of the contour lines. In this way, the landscape can be better visualised. We start from green progressing to yellow, orange and red. If you want to trace out a manageable cycle route, avoid the red zones! If the colours are close together, you can expect a steep incline. If you stay within a dark orange zone, you may expect a manageable route of rolling hill tops with magnificent views. Cyclists who buy a double series of the maps and lay the maps upon each other, will get a unique survey of the valleys and the hills. At the same time, they will se that flood-areas can be avoided, if relief is taken into account at the planning stage.
