    Certainly you are not allowed to cycle through the Westerschelde tunnel

    http://www.westerscheldetunnel.nl/

    I tried selecting a route 'on foot' from St Malo to Amsterdam using Google maps and the first thing it did was send me back on a ferry to Portsmouth! I zoomed in on the section Brugge - Amsterdam, selected 'on foot' and it seemed to find a way across various bridges etc.

    You might need to be a little creative with the final section of route and maybe take a ferry or two instead of going way inland. Example - the Breskens to Vlissingen ferry still operates but for foot passengers, bicycles and scooters only since the tunnel opened.

    I hope that helps.
