The wide rivers are no obstacle for cyclists; they just add to the adventure. You can map out your bike trip on the well-marked cycling network that will take you to all parts of this beautiful river landscape. The ferry can carry both you and your bike across the river so that you can explore both banks.
To make things even easier for you, we’ve marked out two cycling routes, one covering 21km and the other 30km. You can pick up your free copy of the cycling map showing the numbered ‘nodes’ (knooppunt in Dutch: locations with signs) along the route at the VVV tourist office and on the ferry.
Ferries depart from Gorinchem to Sleeuwijk, Woudrichem, Werkendam, and Hardinxveld every day of the week. This form of transport is popular with daily commuters. You can bring your bike on the foot ferry for free.
During the tourist season, there is also a ferry service to Loevestein Castle and Fort Vuren. Check the website of Riveer for the departure times.
