Zeewolde, Biddinghuizen and Harderbos
60.92 km (Approximately 03:35 u)
Harderwijk is best known for the dolphinarium and wellness resort De Zwaluwhoeve, but the pleasant town has more to offer. Harderwijk is relatively small with an area of just over 48 square kilometers. More than one-eighth of this consists of water. In the past as now, that water played a major role in the lives of the inhabitants, who provided their livelihood with it. With the reclamation of the IJsselmeer, the focus has now shifted from fishing and fish trade to tourism, industry and services, but the colorful history of the city is still clearly visible. Few city centers have been so well preserved as the historic center of Harderwijk, which is a protected cityscape. When you cycle in the direction of the Veluwemeer, you will pass through a semi-wild forest. The young Harderbos feels like a primeval forest, with a great diversity of inhabitants, trees, flowers and plants. A swampy area is interrupted by grasslands where flowers provide a vast sea of color. Birds chirp to their heart's content around the puddles, including the golden oriole and kingfisher. The hawk and marsh harrier soar over the fields in search of a tasty snack, while deer and foxes hide in the forest. The lucky cyclist is suddenly face to face with a wild Scottish Highlander and those who pay attention will also see gnawing marks on tree trunks, proof that beavers are nearby and working hard on their castles.
