...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With 676k views so-far this year, it's not just "avid cyclists" that this website reaches. But the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. This large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, but IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

We will be staying in Utrecht, with trips by train to Amsterdam on one day, and Nijmegen and Eindhoven on another. We will see the near-finished largest bicycle parking unit in the world, iconic bicycle overpasses and bridges, and the standard cycling infrastructure which supports Dutch cycling.

Arrival in Utrecht on the evening/night of Wednesday 26th of September, followed by three full days: Thursday 27th, Friday 28th, and Saturday 29th (also options for two days).

The main costs are travel and accommodation (both self booking) and train travel (available on the days of travel).
