On this route you can get a breath of fresh air along the coast and you will be taken along all kinds of historic places around Zandvoort and Haarlem. Zandvoort fisherwomen used to walk barefoot with the fish caught by their tough men to the Vischmarkt in Haarlem. Here they tried to sell the fish. Get on your bike yourself and explore this authentic area.
