Description

It is wonderful to cycle around the Alkmaarder and Uitgeestermeer. In some places you have a nice view over the rippling water. Feel free to step off to enjoy the peace and the view. There is also no shortage of cultural history. In West-Graftdijk you can see the village church, this building originally dates from 1651. Further on is East-Graftdijk. Here is a village church from 1840 with a wooden turret. Behind a completely wooden workers' house from 1877 is a unique hekel loft. Generations of Graftdijkers earned a living by berating hemp for rope-making. Just before Uitgeest you pass a few polder mills, such as the Woudaap from 1651. The Tweede Broekermolen dates from 1631. Via Castricum you cycle back to Landgoed Duin & Bosch. Here you can have a nice drink at De Oude Keuken.
