Leiden Rhine
You cycle to Rijnsburg along the edge of Leiden. You follow the course of the Leidse Rijn or Leidse Vaart. This was dug in the seventeenth century because the old course of the Rhine between Utrecht and Harmelen silted up more and more.

You pass windmill De Geregtigheid, whose bakery is open on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Then you cycle via the Pan van Persijn to the dunes at Wassenaar. It is wonderful to navigate through the rolling greenery here, the Randstad seems very far away. You drive past Meijendel to the romantic Oud-Wassenaar Castle, beautifully situated in the woods of Wassenaar. Today it is widely used as a wedding venue. Through the greenery you cycle back to your starting point at Voorschoten.
