Maliebaan – bike path
On September 15th, 1885, the first cycling road in the Netherlands was built here. In 1883, the Nederlansche Bond voor Vélocipčdisten was founded on Maliebaan 89.
Cycling was a new and popular leisure activity, but it still encountered resistance here and there. The association aimed to remove prejudices against cycling.
In 1885 it changed its name to the General Dutch Cyclist Association. At the request of 44 members, including one woman, the western path of the Maliebaan was made suitable by the municipality for the “Vélocipčde – or fast cycling sport”.
