From the heart of Enkhuizen you drive up the dike along the Markermeer. Here you can enjoy 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 west, into the West Frisian polder. You regularly see a characteristic cloche farm. You drive through Hoogkarspel, further on is De Weelen: an overgrown nature reserve where you can see how West Friesland was before the reclamation. From Andijk you drive a bit over the West Frisian Omringdijk. Until a century ago, the water of the Zuiderzee lapped against the dike here, now you have beautiful views over the IJsselmeer. You pass Vuurtoren De Ven from 1700, further on you enter the old center of Enkhuizen.
