Description

This route starts with a drink on the terrace of Manege - Grandcafé De Molenberg. Via the authentic hamlet of Leenderstrijp you drive into the Leenderbos. Sand drifts and trees adorn the landscape here. The forests are becoming more and more varied and more and more forest animals find their way there. In De Malpie you cycle close to fens and a stream. You can view two windmills along the way. The Heimolen was built on a drifting sand mountain and bought by the Forestry Commission. In 1940, a severe storm destroyed the mill, which would not be rebuilt until the 21st century. The Venbergse Watermill was first mentioned in 1227, when the mill was owned by a sister order. In Soerendonk you get off for a cup of coffee at the beautiful café De Bout.
