The starting point of this route is Café De Kiosk in Loon op Zand. From here you will cycle through the Loonse and Drunense Dunes. In this national park you will find extensive moors and quiet forests. And of course the famous sand dunes to which this area owes its nickname: the Brabant Sahara. Then you arrive in Heusden, a beautiful fortified town. In the polders near the Maas you pass the Fort Hedikhuizen from 1862. Further on you drive along the Haarsteegse Wiel, which was created in 1610 when a dike burst. Via the Heidijk you drive through the Nieuwkuijkse Bosje, a former coppice forest. You cross the canal, after which you cycle along the meadows again. In Giersbergen time seems to have stood still a bit, the hamlet consists almost entirely of thatched long gable farms.
