Description

This cycling route through the Achterhoek takes you on a relaxed round west of Lichtenvoorde. The Achterhoek landscape is characterized by winding streams, small meadows between hedgerows, forests and heaths, many old estates and farms and very old trees. West of Lichtenvoorde you mainly experience the vastness and tranquility of the Achterhoek. You cycle in the middle of the vast fields and farmlands and past the small chapels and crosses that are scattered all over the landscape. The ride starts and ends in Lichtenvoorde. A castle and a chapel were built here in the early 14th century. A village arose near that castle and chapel: Lichtenvoorde. Lichtenvoorde is not a city, but it was moated and defensible. In 1735, Lichtenvoorde was completely burnt down by a fire that started during a fair. The village is known for the Zwarte Cross motocross and music festival and the flower parade, annual events that attract tens of thousands of visitors. On the market of Lichtenvoorde you will find a boulder weighing more than 20,000 kilos. The boulder was dragged there in 1874 by 99 shoemakers from Lichtenvoorde, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of King Willem III's reign. Lichtenvoorde owes the name'Keistad\\\' to it, and the inhabitants nicknamed'Keienslöppers\\\' (boulder tugs). On top of the stone is a lion holding the municipal coat of arms with its front paw.
