Ameland lends itself perfectly to cycling. The island boasts about 100 km bicycle paths through the villages, along the salt marshes, the Wadden sea, pastures and obviously the dunes.
(Bicycle) paths do have to be maintained and this is also planned for the bicycle path stretch in the dunes between the Ballumer Blinkert and the Westerpad. From September 14th 2020 until mid March 2021 this part of the path, marked red on the map, will therefore be closed.
As an alternative for this part of the bicycle path it is possible to take the Verbindingsweg to cover this stretch between Ballumer Blinkert and the Westerpad. This alternative route has been marked blue on the map.
