This route takes you in a circle around the Tjeukemeer. This is the largest inland lake in all of Friesland. Over the centuries, this lake grew larger due to drifting ice and storm tides. This is a real water sports area, but you can also enjoy cycling along the lake.

The Frisian Tsjûkemar

The starting point of this cycle route is in the Brekpolder. From here you cycle to the town of Eesterga. There used to be a church in this village, but it was demolished in 1740. You will still find a bell tower from 1617. Then you set course towards the Tjeukemeer, or as the Frisians say'Het Tsjûkemar\\\'. Over the years, the shape of the lake and its surface have changed considerably. The lake is widely used by water sports enthusiasts. There are several towns around the lake that you will cycle through during this bike tour, such as Sint Nicolaasga and Scharsterbrug.

The Skarrenmoune

On the edge of the village of Scharsterbrug you cycle past the Skarrenmoune windmill. This polder mill was probably built in 1888, but the construction date is not certain. The polder mill has drained the nearby polder for years and also ground grain. You can visit the mill when the blades are turning, but you can also make an appointment to admire the mill from the inside.
