What is wonderful about this book is that not only do you get detailed maps with good directions, but there are also overview maps so that you have a sense of where you are in the countries. Everything that you need for a great cycling trip is included, transportation to and within the countries, a few accomodations (and especially where there are no accomodations), noteworthy sites, restaurants and prices. The routes are generally circle routes with side trips and also connect with each other with both total mileage for the whole circle and sectional mileages. Because this book is well organized with excellent maps - I will definately go to Benelux for a leisurely cycle tour - and probably more than once.
This is a gem of a book for people looking for comprehensive suggestions for biking in the area. Given that local maps and guides in the Netherlands are usually published in Dutch, this book is a great help to English speakers. I was impressed when I followed a route in this book how it took me through especially beautiful areas that I wouldn't have found otherwise. Although it's already a few years old, this book is still worth seeking out.
