After a final 60km through Belgium, we enter the Netherlands, and get introduced to some serious cycle infrastructure. The route follows main roads, but, where it is safer to do so, we will use many of the dedicated cycle paths which run alongside the main road. Our route passes through two large towns Tilburg and Veghel, with a lunch stop in the pretty suburban town of Oisterwijk. After a final pitstop in Gennep, we enter the Lower Rhine region of Germany and the bustling city of Kleve.
