This cycle route goes to the South of the Green Heart. Via Hazerswoude-Dorp you cycle via Moerkapelle to Zevenhuizen. Not through the peat meadow area, as is often the case in the Groene Hart, but along fields and farms. This is a cycling route with (often) a lot of wind. It is therefore recommended to drive it with a south-westerly wind, so that it is easier on the way back to Avifauna'winds\\\'. A first nice stopover is at Jeu de Boer in Hazerswoude-Dorp (junction 5, also a Tourist Transfer Point). This recreation farm is located near two nature reserves, the Spookverlaat and the Rietveld. There is a shop with regional products and you can enjoy a cup of coffee, drink or ice cream on the rural terrace. Various activities are organized such as farmer's golf. Kersengaard The route continues in the direction of Moerkapelle. Kersenkwekerij Jomajole is located on the Middelweg (between junction 7 and 6). I feasted on delicious cherries here and got a nice tour from the owner. It is a covered orchard, so fruit hangs on the trees very early and is of exceptional quality. Cherries are available from early May and from mid-June they also sell apricots, plums and other delicious fruits. It's a nice place to take a rest and have a drink. You continue in the direction of Zevenhuizen and cycle a short distance along the Rottemeren. In the Koornmolengat (near Cafe de Roerdomp) you might spot the bittern and the forest monkey (an almost extinct heron species). Bird species such as the reed warbler, the reed warbler and the wood warbler can be found in the reed. Optionally, you can extend your route from Cafe de Roerdomp towards junction 93 (Zevenhuizerzoom). A beautiful green strip along the banks of the Rotte with often beautiful views over the river. With the ferry you can sail from the Zevenhuizerzoom to Bleiswijk.
