This cycle route along mills in the authentic Hoeksche Waard starts at the De Hoop corn mill from 1822. Originally built as a ground sailor, the mill was raised around 1870 into a scaffolding mill. The mill can be visited on Saturdays. The Antonymolen from 1749 drained the polder until 1957. With a flight of 28.6 meters, the ground sailor is still standing by as a reserve pumping station. Windlust windmill is located in Westmaas, which was closed in 2006 due to decay and has since been fully restored. The round stone smock mill was built in 1853 and milled grain for almost a hundred years. Now the mill is open regularly. Just after Mijnsheerenland you can get off at Eterij-Tapperij De Platte Reedijk for a cup of coffee or a bite to eat before you continue cycling to your starting point.

With great passion and pleasure Arie, Heleen and their three children work on this beautiful company. No day is the same. With a lot of love for the cows and the work, the Hoefsche Zuivel is a real family business to be proud of. They bring farm life back to the people with artisanal dairy products. The milk from the cows is the main ingredient here. Delicious farm yoghurt, milk, vanilla custard and buttermilk are made from this.
