From the heart of Enkhuizen you drive up the dike along the Markermeer. Here you can get a breath of fresh air, while looking out over the rippling water. Time seems to have stood still a bit in Oosterleek, what a charming place! You cycle westward into the West Frisian polder. You will regularly see a characteristic farmhouse here. You drive through Hoogkarspel, further lies De Weelen: a rough nature reserve where you can see how West-Friesland was added before the reclamation. From Andijk you drive a bit over the West Frisian Omringdijk. Until a century ago, the water of the Zuiderzee splashed against the dike here, now you have beautiful views over the IJsselmeer. You pass Lighthouse De Ven from 1700, further on you enter the old center of Enkhuizen. The route ends at Herberg De Compagnie.
