In this region you can see the cope landscape with its characteristic narrow plots: an allotment pattern whose origins date back to the thirteenth century. The hamlet of Teckop through which you drive was founded during the reclamation period. Along the river Meije you can see beautiful old farms on the dike. From a distance you can also see the almost sixty meters high water tower from 1932, an iconic national monument that is also known locally as Pietje Pencil.

Relaxing at Geertjes Hoeve
Near Harmelen you cycle through orchards and along the fairytale Vijverbos. At Geertjes Hoeve you can fully recharge your batteries on the pleasant terrace of the farm restaurant. This cozy restaurant is located in Haarzuilens, a village just outside Utrecht. Enjoy a tasty snack and a drink here and gain new energy. Then immediately take a look at the cheese factory and the farm shop of Geertjes Hoeve and stock up on something delicious for home. Then you can think back on your trip for a long time and enjoy it.

Castle the hair
Time enough for a trip? Then visit Kasteel de Haar, the largest castle in the Netherlands.
