Bike friendly cafés in Zeeland
A bike café always has a visible special wall sign, and is always located on the bike route, or very close by. The bike hub system displays the location of all bike cafés. In Zeeland, they are all certified with the national ‘Fietsers Welkom’ label, issued by the national Fietsplatform, a partner of Routebureau Zeeland.
Find the nearest cycle café via the bike hub system.
Bike cafés are open most days. In school holidays, and from May through September, they’re open at least five days a week. The generally long opening times allow you to be out cycling all day, and take a break. They’re open for a sanitary stop, and you can freshen up without needing to buy anything. Filling your water bidon is free too.
Charging and repairs
Sometimes you need to recharge your batteries along the way. This can be done in one of the bicycle cafés along the way! Groups can also go to the bicycle café. There is plenty of room to park your bike. Had a little breakdown? The café has got a first-aid box, and a bike repair kit. And if the mechanicals are serious, the nice café people will point you towards the nearest bike shop.
You can buy route maps in any bike café and get information about the surrounding area. All bike cafés in Zeeland are located on bike routes marked out across the province. They’re also marked on the maps. That gives you loads of choice for a day’s cycling.
5-star bike province
The national bike platform judged us in May 2017 to be a 5-star bike province. There’s no higher award. Key factors were the overall quality of the bike hub system, network maintenance and the (many) bike cafés en route. The Zeeland Routebureau is always enhancing the system. Just so you can get the best cycling in the Land-On-Sea.
