Ancient Landmarks
The starting point of this cycling tour is on the outskirts of Zuidlaren. From here you set course for the Zuidlaardermeer, where it is regularly pleasantly busy with water holidaymakers. Sunbathers on the beach pavilion, water sports enthusiasts on the lake and boats in the marina, you will find it all here. In the woods and nature on the rest of the route you can escape the crowds for a while. Wander in peace through these beautiful areas and clear your head completely. Along the way you can take a look at ancient dolmens and burial mounds that were the final resting place for the dead from Antiquity. The small dolmen D09 in Annen is small and incomplete, but it is still special to see this 5000 year old structure.
