Description

Cycling through the Gelderse Vallei means cycling between meadows. Bluegrasslands once reigned supreme here, but now they are encapsulated by farmland and fields worked by farmers. Yet the scraps of blue grassland that are left are breathtakingly beautiful and in very good condition. Meadow birds seek refuge between blue sedge, bluebell gentian and the many orchids. In 2010 a tuft of curled sickle moss was found for the first time in forty years.

Snack point't Meeting point
The wide panorama\\\'s attract many cyclists, who can enjoy breathtakingly beautiful views. You can park your car for free at't Trefpunt. You cycle from the parking lot to Renswoude, located outside Ederveen. This knightly court town used to be called Borchwal, presumably referring to the bailey that used to surround the castle. The first house on the estate probably dates from the late 14th century. The current house was built on the medieval foundations of this first house, when it was built in 1654. The next point of interest on the route is the Walderveense Mill. This octagonal wind corn mill was built in 1895 on the site of an earlier post mill. The scaffolding mill has a stone substructure and a wooden, thatched superstructure. There are two pairs of millstones in the mill, both of which are still in use.

Windmill the Doesburgermolen
When you continue you will come to one of the oldest windmills in the Netherlands: the Doesburgermolen was built around 1620. The closed post flour mill still has an old tail construction and probably used to be an open post mill. The ground sailor - the tips of the blades almost touch the ground - was built to replace an even older mill, which could be seen on a map in 1568. After all the impressions you have gained on the bike ride, it is wonderful to choose something delicious from the menu at't Trefpunt. You can relax in the cafeteria or in the cozy bar. Larger groups are also very welcome, so you can end the tour with the entire cycling club at't Trefpunt!
