Spring cycle routes on Texel
A visit to Texel in spring will perhaps reveal the island in its most beautiful season and if you are on the bike, you have even more opportunity to watch the lambs that populate Texel’s meadows and to view the bulbs fields as they burst into colour. Our bike trails will guide you along the right paths!
VVV Texel’s Little Lambs bike trail is a 35-kilometre path along the areas of island with the most sheep, so it’s even more fun to go in spring when the lambs fill the meadows!
The accompanying booklet also answers all conceivable questions about the breed of Texel sheep and lambing. For instance, do you know the best way of getting a sheep back on its feet or what the daubs of colour on their fleeces mean?
Do you want to discover the island in a unique way? With the routes in the Eilandroutes (Island Routes) booklet you will arrive at the most beautiful places of the island and you will read the nicest background information.
The route booklets Little Lambs bike trail and the Eilandroutes are available in the store of VVV Texel.
