For ride number seven of nine I cycled the Greenport Bikeway again. This was the first fast cycle route to be opened in the province of Limburg in 2015. I decided to take a full day outing, the day I went to the bridge in my last post. I cycled the entire length of this fast cycle route before I filmed the bridge.
The Greenport Bikeway is now also known as the F167, at least that is what a bunch of new signs told me. There were some other things that had changed since I was here in 2015. At the time there had been a strange detour through a field near the crossing with Grubbenvorsterweg because some land had not been acquired yet. That temporary detour was one of the very few parts of the route to have black asphalt. The route was straightened out now and the temporary asphalt was removed. You could only see in the sand where the detour had been. More change is underway. Earlier this year newspapers reported that the Greenport Bikeway is to be expanded all the way to America. Yes, you read that right. I already cycled from the current end of the route to the new end-destination America. Which is in fact the name of the next village or a distance of about 5 kilometres. I went there now to film the before situation so I can make a before-and-after video after that extension has been finished.
In this post some more pictures of the Greenport Bikeway in 2020 with some further explanation and of course the video with the full 32 minute ride in real-time. Enjoy!
This week’s video shows the ride on the Greenport Bikeway in 2020. Date of filming Wednesday 26 August 2020.
