Anyone who wants to get to know the forests and heaths of the Southwest Veluwe will find what they are looking for during this cycling route. You cycle through or along the following nature reserves: Wageningse Berg, De Sysselt, Edese Bos, Edese Hei, Ginkelse Hei, Roekel, Wekeromse Zand, Noord Ginkel, Zuid Ginkel and Renkumse Beekdal. Vast forests, sand dunes, fens and heaths, which you can explore by bike. The Ginkelse and Eder Heide are well known, where the shepherds with their flocks of sheep can be found almost every day.
