Description

This route will quickly lead you to De Krom Cozy food and drink for a cup of coffee. Then you discover the Lek. Since the Rhine canalisation in 1970, the water level from the Hagestein weir has been under the influence of ebb and flow for most of the year. Just before Streefkerk you will pass the Broekmolen, dating from 1581, which was used to drain the polder. You will also visit ancient villages, such as Oud-Alblas, Groot-Ammers and Molenaarsgraaf. Wijngaarden is the lowest situated village in the Alblasserwaard, during the flood disaster of 1953 the village was flooded. You also cycle through Nieuwpoort. This old fortified city has an illustrious history. After 1672 the town became part of the Old Dutch Waterline. The historic center has been beautifully preserved.
