People of all ages enjoying the fietsvierdaagse in Drenthe. This is a non competitive cycling event, which requires people to take four days covering routes around Assen.

The routes vary from 40 to 100 km (you choose the length that is most suitable for you).

It has very wide appeal. You will see small children through to pensioners in this photo and video. The video is taken about 10 km from the end of the ride, well out in the countryside, and shows a grandparent pushing a child while holding a balloon. They're closely following behind a mother pulling small babies in a child trailer. This is the sort of relaxed cycling by normal people which is made possible by good quality segregated cycling facilities.

The event has attracted up to 40000 people in some years and there are 60 other similar events in other cities around the Netherlands.
