The suggested route depends on your selected flavour (shortest/fastest/nicest)

Most routeplanner show you the shortest and the fastest route. We provide you also the nicest (depending on your selected activity). Read here about what we mean with the "nicest route". And how we do this using the RouteYou Network.

The suggested route depends on your selected road/path condition (unpaved/paved)

Some cyclist prefer to stay on paved roads and paths (e.g. race cyclists). Other like to be more adventurous and don't mind an unpaved roads. But maybe only in summer. And others prefer the unpaved roads all the time (MTBers).

The RoutePlanner also allows you to plan via specific reference networks such as the Bike Node Network in the Netherlands and Belgium. Read more about it here.

But it looks like you are using Google Maps

We show the route on top of GoogleMaps but the "intelligent routing" has been tuned and developed by RouteYou, using the RouteYou Netwerk.
