High time to crank up the pedals!! I start from Bungalow Park Het Verscholen Dorp (junction 48) with the medieval fortified town of Elburg as final destination.
Cycling in an easterly direction, I connect via Hierden, with many beautiful farms and neatly landscaped gardens and imposing villas, to the long-distance route"the Zuiderzeeroute\\\". This route goes along the water and through the woods. By the way, the route is ideally suited to expand into a complete (possibly multi-day) cycling tour around the Randmeren, a route of approximately 150 kilometers where cycling enthusiasts can indulge themselves, but more about that another time??
Every time I am impressed by the versatility of the Veluwe, on the left is the wide water of the Veluwemeer with a beautiful view of a series of natural islands and on my right is the beautiful outlying area of the municipality of Nunspeet with many agricultural businesses. The cycling tour continues past meadows with sheep, cows and horses and eventually leads past the foundations of the old St. Ludgerus Church in Elburg. (The church was demolished after heavy damage by a storm in February 1825 and a fire in October 1825.) Once I arrived in the picturesque town of Elburg, I lock my bicycle at the fish-rich canal and walk along the beautiful ramparts and pieces of the city wall to the pleasant shopping streets with countless restaurants and terraces that are located in the city center. So, now first strengthen the inner man with a delicious cup of coffee latte with a tasty Elburger bone mmmm. This delicious cake in the shape of a fish has been made for almost 100 years and is not only popular with the Elburgers, but also with tourists. So if you want to take something original from Elburg home, visit the bakery Docter on the Beekstraat. Success at home guaranteed
