Description

You start this fun bike ride at Brasserie Zo Simpel. Enjoy something tasty here, so that you drive through the peaceful Pettemerduinen with enough energy. Then you drive a bit through the Zijpe and Hazepolder. Until the twelfth century, this area was covered by raised bog, in the following centuries the land was reclaimed and subdivided into straight plots. You will pass through Mennonietenbuurt, a settlement founded by missionaries. You can make a pit stop at Restaurant de Watersnip, in the summer you can also visit mini beach pavilion The Sandbar. You cycle south along the coast and pass through the northern part of the Schoorlse Duinen. Further on you drive through the vast Hargerpolder. In this quiet and bird-rich area you pass two monumental polder mills: the Groetermolen and Hargermolen. The route ends in Petten.
