Leiden is indicated with Key City - referring to the city coat of arms with a white shield and two crossed red keys. The city's history goes back to at least the year 860, when it was still a dike village built at the foot of an artificial hill. Today's Leiden is primarily a center of scientific knowledge and new technology. It is not for nothing that Leiden has the oldest university in the Netherlands. On this tour you will not only encounter the large scale of cities, but you will also get to know the smaller villages, such as Roelofarendsveen. This small village supplies 25 percent of the Dutch tulip production. During the fair there is an annual beautiful flower parade, a procession with wagons decorated with flowers. Because of the tulip production, the village is aptly referred to as'the tulip of the Randstad\\\'. And you cross a beautiful system of peat lakes near Leiden: the Kagerplassen. It is the oldest water sports area in the Netherlands and sailing, rowing and motor sports association De Kaag provides the necessary life here. This association has played a significant role in the development of water tourism around the lakes and in the area you will be immersed in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. The route starts at Profile De Klokpoort. If there is something wrong with your bike or if you want to have your bike checked, this is your perfect opportunity. With your bicycle discount pass you get a 10.00 euro discount on maintenance and repairs here. You can start your cycling tour with a bike that is in tiptop condition. In Oude Ade you can view the windmill Vrouw Venne. This seesaw mill was built in 1835, but originally dates from the seventeenth century. In 1835, Vrouw Venne was almost completely renovated and an electric pumping station was installed in 1954, after the king's spindle had broken. In 1961 the mill had fallen into disrepair and it was bought up by the Rijnlandse Molenstichting, which had it restored in 1963. Another restoration took place in 1998. You then cycle towards Jachthaven de Brasem NV This marina is a perfect place to enjoy a drink on the terrace when the weather is nice. Many water sports enthusiasts are sailing and windsurfing here when the weather is nice, which creates a cozy atmosphere. Or you can view the beautiful boats that are anchored there. There is always something to see in the cozy marina.
