Go out into Westfriesland and get to know this agricultural area full of long ribbon villages that is enclosed by the Westfriese Omringdijk, the only monumental dike in the world. A wonderful environment to discover by bike.

Be amazed along the way
On this route you can enjoy an ever-changing landscape with tulip fields, meadows full of sheep, typical Dutch windmills, numerous bird species and authentic bell-shaped farms. On top of the dike, along the IJsselmeer, you can be enchanted by a view that stretches to the end of the horizon. Also take a look at the water sports enthusiasts with their sailing yachts, surfboards or kiteboards on the water. If you are lucky you can spot a three-master of the brown fleet crossing over the water, a majestic sight.

Nice sights and regional products
Furthermore, the charming towns you cycle through on this route are also worthwhile. For example, take a look at Medemblik or Hoorn and enjoy all the interesting sights you can find here. How about the Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen or the Windmill Krijgsman? If you are looking for tasty regional products fresh from the land, you can visit roadside sales stalls at nearby farms.

With feet bare
In Bovenkarspel you will find a barefoot path near the recreation area Het Streekbos. This path runs over agricultural land and along the way you will encounter a windmill, a bird pond, a herb garden and a willow forest. Get off your bike, take off your shoes and explore this part of West Friesland barefoot. A unique experience that will stay with you for a long time.
