Below is a list of the most striking dangerous cycling spots in The Hague.
The number one of the left places to go as a cyclist seems to be the Goudenregenstraat. We saw that name very often in our mailbox and on Facebook.

Cars that want to turn right regularly become impatient because they first have to give way to a whole row of straight-going cyclists. My son has already been hit twice.’
