Rijnwaalpad Extended

The Rijnwaalpad should be a fast and comfortable bicycle path between Nijmegen and Arnhem. Besides its fast character, the Rijnwaalpad also emits a certain slowness: along the path, throughout the different landscapes there are stops to experience the environment. Additionally, these stops increase the recognisability of the Rijnwaalpad to give it a stronger identity than a standard bicycle path.

Both the path and the stops are carried out in red asphalt. Red represents the domain of the cyclist and activates positive associations to a sustainable use of the environment. The stops are designed as a family of elements along the Rijnwaalpad. Each stop embodies a unique response to the local environment.
