I shall be departing on a trip through France, Belgium & The Netherlands soon and I was hoping someone could advise me (or post links) the cycling laws of each of those countries.
In particular I'd like to know if helmets are compulsory and which type of roads bicycles are allowed to cycle on (for example, in the UK all roads are OK apart from motorways). Moreover, are there any laws that are particular for the country, e.g. France has something about wearing a reflective vest?
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
