The route starts near the beautiful fifteenth-century Nicholas Church in Hauwert. It is wonderful to make kilometers in the wide polders. You regularly pass a characteristic farmhouse. You will also pass the former Twisk Station. This station dates from 1887 and is located on the Hoorn-Medemblik railway line, which was also opened that year. Until 1936, the operation was in the hands of the Hollandsche IJzeren Spoorweg-Maatschappij, the first railway company in the Netherlands. Nowadays a tourist steam train runs on this track.
Medemblik received city rights from Count Floris V as early as 1289. The town grew into a prosperous port city. You can still see this rich history in the many beautiful facades. Then you drive along the West Frisian Omringdijk for miles. From the saddle you have a beautiful view over the rippling water of the IJsselmeer.
