Okay, this route may not be extremely long, but you're going to need a whole day to drive it. Because with a stopover in Zutphen, among others, there is a lot to experience along the way.
From Hotel and Restaurant Hof van Gelre you first drive through Lochem, a pleasant town with a rich history. A little later you drive into a beautiful bocage landscape. The mosaic of fields, meadows, hedgerows, streams and forests never bores. It seems as if this landscape has been created especially for cyclists. Then you pass through Zutphen: the picturesque Hanseatic city on the IJssel. You will have no trouble spending your time here. Just before Vorden you pass Hackfort castle. On your route you will pass many historical sights, such as stately buildings, characteristic farms and old churches.

De Warkense Molen

Warkense Molen
7231PK Zutphen

The Warkense Molen was built in 1878. Fairly soon after construction, the mill was assisted by a petroleum engine to be able to grind even when there was no wind. This engine was installed in 1899 in a small engine room inside the mill. In 1922 a larger engine room was built outside the mill. This room is still there between the mill and the bakery museum. Yet for a long time wind power played the leading role in this mill. Later only in wartime milling was done exclusively on wind power. For the rest, milling was mainly done with machine grinding companies. In the 1980s, wind-powered milling was last used for the animal feed company when the machine mill was temporarily broken. The mill has been restored several times over the years. For example, the wooden blades of the mill were replaced by metal blades and the wooden mill shaft was replaced by a cast iron shaft.
