this website shows you plenty of great cycling destinations : http://www.cyclingaroundtheworld.nl/
for the Netherlands : http://www.fietsen.123.nl/cycle%20routes%20netherlands.htm
bordering the Netherlands is the north-Belgian region of Flanders, where bicycles rule, like in the Netherlands : http://www.fietsroute.org/indexuk.htm
for trans-European cycling routes, click on one of the routes : http://www.ecf.com/3188_1
for country-per-country information in Europe, click on one of the flags : http://www.ecf.com/374_1

there is a huge amount of information available online on cycling in European countries, but often only in the local language : don't hesitate to ask me for help (particularly for the Netherlands & Flanders, because that's where I live.)

here in Belgium, I also know several tour operators that specialise in cycle trips throughout Europe, in group or individual. they're not cheap, but all information is provided, all your hotels are booked, and your luggage is transported to your next hotel. and if you run into trouble you can call for assistance. their websites are in Dutch, but they will always answer you in English if you email them. ask me if you want some email addresses.
this one even organises cycle trips worldwide : http://www.flyandbike.be/
