Dictionary of Dutchness


The ANWB (Algemene Nederlandsche Wielrijders Bond) began in 1883 as a road safety organisation for cyclists, promoting the use of bicycle bells. It has since grown into a massive motoring organisation with four million members, offering roadside repairs (the yellow vans of the Wegenwacht), travel information and insurance.
