Stichting Vrienden op de Fiets likes to work together with organisations that share our goals. Our criteria for cooperation are clear: our interests should match and Friends and guest addresses should benefit from the partnership.
Stichting Vrienden op de Fiets of course maintains close ties with the Dutch Cyclists’ Union or Fietsersbond, which promotes the interests of the 13.5 million cyclists in the Netherlands. We carry announcements about each other’s activities and, where possible, support one another’s work. We are very happy with the Fietserbond route planner that offers guest adresses as a Point of Interest and gives you a simple way to navigate to your guest address. We are also in regular contact with the Belgian Cyclists' Union (Belgische Fietsersbond).
Also, we are friends with Landelijk Fietsplatform, partner in recreational cycling. The platform gives impulses to advocacy, product development & promotion and manages the long range LF-routes.
To serve the hikers among our Friends even better, we maintain ties with Wandelnet, the starting point for hikers in the Netherlands. Their planner is linked to our site as well. It allows you to find great trails for hiking to your guest address.
We would also like to draw your attention to special initiatives such as Rustpunten or Resting Points, where you can take a break and drink some coffee, tea or lemonade in return for a voluntary contribution. Many Resting Points also offer the use of a toilet or the possibility to recharge your e-bike. You will find Resting Points at private yards along biking or hiking routes.
Thanks to our partnerships, we are also able to offer our Friends discounts on, for example, admission to the yearly Fiets en Wandelbeurs (Cycling and Hiking Fair).
