Bike friendly cafés in Zeeland

When you’re out on your bike and you suddenly ‘hit the wall’, or get the ‘bonk’ (non-bikers call this hunger pangs), get some food inside you quickly. A snack. Or maybe you’re in for a lavish lunch? Or you need some facilities? This is when a bike café fits the bill. We call them ‘fietscafés’. They come in all shapes and sizes, from a ‘grand café’ to a modest coffee shop. Great for a short break, or as the starting point of your trip.

Wall sign

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.

Opening times

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.

Route maps

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.

One of the best-rated cycling provinces in the Netherlands

Zeeland has been nominated by the Dutch national cycle platform as one of the best-rated cycling provinces in the Netherlands. And that’s something we can be truly proud of! 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.
