It is nice to pedal on the leafy and quiet path. Via the forest of the Resterheide you reach Hechtel, a pleasant village where you can admire a few mansions. On the Dorpsstraat you will see the Chapel of Our Lady of Assistance. The prayer house is said to date from the mid-nineteenth century.

Fragrant Pains
A little later you cycle for miles through the fragrant coniferous forests of the Pijnven. What is this enjoyment! From junction 245 you drive a bit through the Dommel valley. This protected landscape consists of fields with hedgerows, alder forests, poplar plantations and meadows. The Wedelse Molen is located on the river. According to some sources, the mill already existed in the 8th century, which would mean that it is the oldest water mill in the Benelux. You are welcome for a snack and a drink at the cozy and educational Breugelhoeve.
