Bike trails

Texel is the ultimate cycling island. Take your own bike, or rent one from any of the many bike-hire outlets on the island. You can choose between normal bikes, electric bikes or bikes for kids. Together with friends of family, Texel is ready and waiting for you to discover it along the many cycle-paths the island features.

Cycling on Texel

There are so many wonderful cycling routes on the island. Texel has no less than 140 kilometres of cycle-paths, including plenty of absolutely stunning stretches. Not to be missed is the bike route along the Waddenzee. Here you cycle over the dyke with a view across the water.

The Waalenburgerdijkje between De Koog and Den Burg is also a must. Or experience the pleasure of pedalling past the dune edges near De Koog and Den Hoorn. Along the way you’ll always come across a cosy outdoor café where you can pause and relax. You’ll find all the cycling routes on the Texel map.

Texel’s cycling network

The cycling network couldn’t be easier to use: just follow the signs from one numbered junction to the next. With Texel’s cycling network, you choose your own route and distance.  

How does it work?

Information panels along the route and the map of Texel give the numbers of the bike junctions. The distances between the junctions are listed on the special Fietsknooppuntenkaartje (bike-junction map), available from VVV Texel and other outlets.

Your personal route

You can also use this system to plan your personal route in advance. Simply choose the junction to start from and then mark out a route online, using the map of Texel or the ‘Fietsknooppuntenkaartje’ bike-junction map. Make a note of the junction numbers in the right order and you’re off – just follow the numbers.

Tip: remember the number of the place where you began your cycle trip, so that you can finish back where you started again.
