In the Krimpenerwaard you can enjoy cycling through the polders and along the water. This route takes you along the Lek and along the IJssel. Along the way you can enjoy the peaceful landscape and the various cozy towns you drive through.

The windmills of Kinderdijk
The first part of the route runs along the banks of the Lek. You set course for Krimpen aan den IJssel through Nieuw-Lekkerland and Kinderdijk. Along the way you will pass several Kinderdijk windmills. In total you will find no less than nineteen polder mills at a short distance from each other, so take the time to take a look here if you like windmills. From Krimpen aan den IJssel you continue along the IJssel in the direction of Gouda. You will cycle along the Reinier Blok pumping station. This pumping station was built in 1868 to pump water from the polders to the IJssel.

The last part
The last part takes you through the polders to Berkenwoude and Bergambacht. You will eventually end your tour on the edge of the Lek. Ready for a snack and a drink? Then settle a little before the end point at Onder de Molen.

A historic duck decoy
In the Krimpenerwaard you will find duck decoys for centuries. Duck decoy Nooitgedacht is one of the remaining duck decoys. In the past the ducks were caught here for consumption, but now the ducks are collected here to provide them with a ring for scientific research and then released again.
