This cycling route of over 52 kilometers takes you criss-cross along the Loosdrechtse Plassen, a beautiful nature reserve in North Holland. Along the way you will pass the villages of Vinkeveen, Nieuw-Loosdrecht, Breukelen and Vreeland.

Loosdrechtse Plassen
This route takes you straight through the Loosdrechtse Plassen. Loved by water sports enthusiasts, it can get quite busy in the summer. But this puddle area also has a different face. In the quiet parts such as the Vuntus and Breukeleveense Plas many aquatic plants and birds live. Here you can really relax.

Mills on the way
During the route you cycle past three mills that are fairly close to each other. The Garstenmolen in Nigtevecht was built in 1876 on the site of an earlier mill that had burned down. Until 1960, this mill drained the Garstenpolder. The Hoekermolen was thoroughly restored in 2006, so that the mill can now also handle the lowered polder level. Molen De Ruiter is a flour mill that was built here in 1910. This mill served as a replacement for an earlier mill that had burned down. The mill is still in working order.

The nature around
The area around the lakes is a beautiful setting. Enjoy the flora and fauna while your hair is blowing in the wind. There is too much to tell about this route, there is so much to see! After you have completed this beautiful cycling route, you can settle down at Café Restaurant De Otter, an atmospheric place in a beautiful location on the Loosdrechtse Plassen. You can have a nice lunch here, eat out or have a drink by the water.
