Basisschool de Hoeven is a primary school in the suburban town of Beuningen. It is situated on the fast cycling route Nijmegen – Beuningen. It is a 8 kilometer ride on both branches of the fast cycle route to the school. At the school you will meet the director who will explain the school’s situation and the way the pupils travel to school (which is mostly by foot and/or by bike). Parents dropping off kids by car have to park far away from the school. The fast cycling route created at first some concerns (speed, to many cyclists) but with the adjustments made, the school is now very cycling-friendly, even for Dutch standards. When traveling to the school you will use the fast cycling route Nijmegen – Beuningen.
