Test an e-bike for free on the star bike route from Leidschenveen

Published: 6 March 2018Modified: 6 March 2018

The star bike route from Leidschenveen to downtown The Hague is ready. To celebrate this residents of Leidschenveen can test out an e-bike for 10 days between 9 March and 22 June for free. See for yourself how fast, safe and comfortable the route is.

Better route

The largest portion of the route now has dedicated cycle paths or bike lanes. The Schrepelpad is now a bicycle street. A number of intersections have been made clearer and safer.  

Smart LED lights were installed on the Nieuweveensepad. This is energy efficient. There are also new trees along the paths.

This is the star bike route

  • Schrepelpad
