Even on cycleways, village and town borders are signed: here, I was leaving Duivendrecht and entering the suburb of Diemen, Amsterdam. This cycleway ('De Slinger') runs parallel to a secondary road called Van de Madeweg - bicycle access to Van de Madeweg is prohibited, but this is for a good reason: fast-moving motor vehicles hurt - if the cycleway here was below standard, I would feel very differently about being prohibited as a cyclist from using what I would consider a direct and quick route but, since there *is* a direct and quick route (cycleway; pictured), I'm not too bothered. The bridge pictured crossing De Slinger carries the S112: an urban 'autoweg' (nearing motorway status) with, I think, an 100 km/h speed limit.
