In West Friesland you can get a breath of fresh air on the dikes. In the polders you will find peace and historical places such as Medemblik. Ideal for a day of cycling!

Twisk station
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. Today a tourist steam train runs on this track.

Picturesque Medemblik
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 for miles along the West Frisian Omringdijk. From the saddle you have a beautiful view over the rippling water of the IJsselmeer. Just past Andijk you make a stopover at Angel Creations, a bicycle café where you can book various arrangements and creative workshops.
