From De Meern you can easily cycle into the countryside around Utrecht. You drive through a typical landscape of rectangular meadows and ditches. In Montfoort you can take a look at the outer bailey of what was once a large castle. Further on you cycle into Woerden. Woerden Castle is located on Defense Island, a peninsula in the canal. The fortress originally dates from 1415. Along the Oude Rijn you drive back into the polders. It's wonderfully peaceful cycling here! Via Kockengen you drive to Breukelen. You can see some beautiful buildings on the Vecht. De Haar Castle is the end of this route: it is the largest castle in the Netherlands. After disembarking, enjoy a meal at Brazzerie Abrona.
