Your route starts with a cup of coffee at Hotel Wymerts in Workum. Today you will cycle through the Frisian region of Gaasterland, a very different type of area than you would expect to find in the Frisian province: instead of a flat polder and meadow landscape, this nature reserve has richly sloping forests. The relief formed a natural protective wall against the water of the Zuiderzee, and now still against the water of the IJsselmeer. You will find beautiful windmills here, such as Doris Mooltsje: the oldest spider-head mill in Friesland. You can see the mill from afar and it is in a romantic location next to the water. The mill was probably built in the eighteenth century. The Nylânnermolen in Workum was probably built in 1784 as a polder mill.
