Snelbinder – one of Netherlands’ longest bicycle bridges, connects Nijmegen to Lent

Snelbinder takes you over the river Waal in Nijmegen and it has a total length of 2 kilometres (almost 1 1/4 mile) with a main span of 235 metres (771 ft). The bridge was attached to the railway bridge that had already been there since 1879.

In Dutch its name means to connect quickly – and that’s what this bridge does.  It connects Nijmegen with its suburb, Lent, by giving a convenient crossing path over the river.
