Description

The route starts from TOP Oud-Beijerland at restaurant Oude Tol. Alternative: from TOP Rhoonse Grienden you can take a bicycle-foot ferry to TOP Oud-Beijerland.
The cycle route runs through the lovely village of Oud-Beijerland, the largest core in the Hoeksche Waard. The area where Oud-Beijerland is now located became habitable in 1557. The Count Lamoraal van Egmond acquired the rights to this area and founded the village of Beijerland in 1559. The village is named after the Count's wife, Sabina of Bavaria. Because a village with almost the same name was founded in the new polder, Nieuw-Beijerland, Beijerland was given the name Oud-Beijerland. Later a village was founded in the south of the Hoeksche Waard called Zuid-Beijerland. You will pass many beautiful dikes, fields and creeks.
Ten measures
After 20 km from Oud-Beijerland you will arrive at the ferry for the crossing to the nature island of Tiengemeten, which is managed by Natuurmonumenten.
In 2006 Tiengemeten was transformed from agricultural land to nature. A hole has been dug in the dike on the south side; much of the island is now under the influence of the river on a daily basis. Further on, the water is still and a vast swamp is created. Natuurmonumenten is restoring the old cultural landscape in the island's oldest polder. In addition to nature, Tiengemeten also has several museums:
The Rien Poortvliet Museum and the Agricultural Museum.
