A bike tour starts with the preparation at home. And with that, the anticipation also begins. What do I bring? Am I going by train to the starting point? Which bicycle guide is available? We are happy to answer these questions here.
Cycle guide LF KustrouteWhat are you looking for when you go cycling? Most of all a beautiful route. Preferably with a good map. And practical information for on the road. That’s what this LF cycle guide will offer you.
Follow the signsThe signposting of an LF route is simple and clear: the entire LF Kustroute is marked in both directions with signs that say ‘LF Kustroute’. This means that we can keep the instructions extremely short: “follow the signs”.
Take the road with the appLet the LF app guide you during your bike ride. Free and handy for on the road. It includes details of the LF Kustroute. And also of the ‘Fietsers Welkom!’ establishments and accommodations. The app even tells you the ferry schedules.
Certificate and frame stickerDid you ride the entire LF Kustroute? Then you can apply for a suitable souvenir: a shield to stick onto your frame, a personal certificate and a mention in the gallery of honour.
Check the current infoAlmost ready to hop on your bike? Check the latest info before you go. Maybe a road has been diverted, a ferry is out of service or there’s been another route change. (in Dutch)
Distance tableFor your convenience we have divided the LF Kustroute into eleven stages. If you’d rather plan your trip yourself, the distance table will get you started.
Take your bike with you on the trainIf you’d like to take your bike with you on the train, you have to make a reservation and buy a day ticket for bikes, which has a fixed rate regardless of the distance and destination.
Ferry Hoek van Holland - Maasvlakte out of service
Unfortunately, as of January 1, 2022, the ferry across the Maasvlakte will be out of service. This means that you have to cycle an alternative route. Namely via the ferry at Rozenburg. On the map you see the alternative route indicated in yellow between junction 01 at Oostvoorne and junction 94 at Hoek van Holland. You can partly follow the signs for the LF Maasroute. Here you can see in detail the alternative route to follow.
