The route starts at Hotel Kontakt der Kontinenten on the edge of Soesterberg. A great starting point, because you immediately start in the woods of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park. In this rolling landscape it is wonderful to drive for miles through alternating deciduous and coniferous forests. You will also pass through beautiful Amersfoort. In the Gelderse Vallei you drive through Woudenberg and Veenendaal, two beautiful places where you can admire a lot of heritage. In Renswoude, stop at Bike Totaal Van Wijk Fietsen. At the foot of the ridge you pass Den Treek, an estate whose history dates back to the fourteenth century. Further on you drive along the Valleikanaal, a watercourse that formed an important part of the Grebbe Line. You can still see some old casemates.
