Pieterpad for cyclists - first three stages of the Pieterpad
The Pieterpad is a well-known long-distance walking route that runs all the way from the Groningen Wadden coast to Maastricht. Would you like to explore this route, but would you rather be on your bike than heading out in your walking shoes? Then set off on the Cyclists' Path. This path runs approximately the same as the Pieterpad route, but on roads where you can cycle. This route consists of the first three stages of the path.

The first stage
The first part of this route takes you from Pieterburen to Winsum. You can choose to get on your bike straight away, but you can also take a look around the Wadden village of Pieterburen. Here you will find, among other things, the seal sanctuary of Lenie't Hart. From here you cycle through the peaceful landscape to Eenrum, where you can take a look at the Laurentius Church. Then you cycle further to Winsum. There you can go to Marenland Recreatie for a well-deserved snack and a drink or an overnight stay. You can also take a look at Molen De Vriendschap in Winsum.

The second stage
Then you cycle from Winsum to Groningen. You will pass through Alinghuizen, Hekkum and many more small towns. Along the way you cycle through vast and quiet areas. Then you cross the pleasant center of Groningen. You will pass a Rainbow Path and the Groninger Museum.

The third stage
The last part of this route runs from Groningen to Zuidlaren. On the edge of the Paterswoldsemeer you will find the De Helper mill. You can also enjoy a snack and a drink at Pannenkoekhuis Paviljoen Appelbergen near Glimmen. On the way to Zuidlaren you will pass Hunebed G01 and you will end your tour at Tulip Inn Brinkhotel Zuidlaren.
