Sorry for the confusion. I know them for their bicycle map - they have a
motorbike and walking map, too, it seems.

Here's the Babelfish-translation of http://www.onroute.nl/fiets/112,
edited by me to have one meaning. (I didn't fix the computer translation
at all, I just made the meaning of the text clear, it's stil computer
generated English).

"By who were the OnRoute bicycle map developed?

The OnRoute bicycle card were developed by a shop named WayPoint.
WayPoint a shop is, specialised in leisure navigation. Started from the
hobby, but nowadays we have three shops. Beside the main shop in Twentse
Notter, there are two in Moordrecht (Gouda) and Vessem (Eindhoven).

Waypoint sells GPS devices for a lot of years especially for walk and
bicycles. But observed thereby that these devices for many people are
too technical. This is what Waypoint has wanted to change with their
OnRoute bicycle map.

The map was made in association with the Belgian company RouteYou.
RouteYou introduced especially technical mapping knowledge, which it
made possible to connect our "beautiful roads network" to the maps of
TeleAtlas. The conversion to Garmin-kaarten did WayPoint themselves. The
"beautiful roads network" work came about on the basis of several
sources, especially on the basis of the collected tracks of people who
themselves cycled a certain route. Thus the site www.gpstracks.nl have
for example made an important contribution. "
