Your route starts at Bike Totaal Kruijswijk Tweewielers in Castricum. Soon you drive into the North Holland Dune Reserve, one of the largest nature reserves in the Netherlands. If you want to know more about this special area, first drop by Visitor Center De Hoep. The route leads right past it. Special windmills can be seen in the hinterland. A beautiful cycle path leads you straight through the dunes to the nineteenth-century Varnebroek mill. The nine-metre-high mill was briefly moved from its place a few years ago due to a restoration by a mill builder. With a new auger and new rods'it looks proud again. Along the banks of the Limmergat and the Uitgeestermeer you drive back to Castricum, past the Woudaap: a beautiful polder mill from 1651.
