Texel cycle routes

Since 2011, Texel has an extensive cycle junction network. Handy for putting together your own route. The network consists of 57 well-organised junctions, with information boards with a network map spread across the island. As for cycle maps, try the Texel cycle junction map by VVV Texel or Falk’s cycle map with a themed cycle route across Texel. Several cycle routes are, of course, also available from our reception desks.

TIP: One of the most beautiful cycle trails in the old part of Texel is Skillepaadje, between 't Buurtje and Brakenstein. A trail on a small ‘dyke’ through the brackish Mielanden at the foot of Hoge Berg. 

Most De Krim Texel parks provide bike hire. Also, there are bike hire shops in most Texel villages. Quite a few them offer tandem bikes and e-bikes besides ordinary bikes. And across the island, at regular intervals, you will find places where you can relax for a while and recharge your electric bike!
