The node system
The node system, which is already nationwide in the Benelux is very practical, and is also used in a large part of the northwestern region.
Imagine a cycle path network like a spider web. All intersections of cycle paths in the network are numbered; the intersections are also called nodes. The signage is shown in both directions. On the map you can search for your starting point, i.e. a node. From this junction, everyone can set their route by simply noting the numbers of the junction they want to go to. The advantage of the system is that a large number of circular routes are possible from any node and that the route can still be changed at each node. The number of kilometers (shown on the maps and on the information boards) is easily calculated by adding the distances from node to node. As a cyclist, you can use this system for your tour planning. All nodes on the selected route are simply noted and approached. The node system will be seen as an addition to the existing signage and will not replace it.
