  • The Netherlands

  • 52.45 km (Approximately 03:05 u)
  • Cycling route 984270
This cycling route takes you along the Vinkeveense and Loosdrechtse Plassen. First you cycle through Demmerik. Thanks to the long and cross house farms, Demmerik still looks like a peat village. After Vinkeveen you drive over the Baambrugse Zuwe. This hamlet consists of one road: the former reclamation axis that runs right through the Vinkeveense Plassen. Thanks to the marinas and villas, this road is nicknamed the Millionaire Mile. Further on you cycle along the Vecht. You pass three old mills here: the Garstenmolen, the Hoekermolen and Molen De Ruiter. You then drive over a dike along the Loosdrechtse Plassen. In between you make a stop in Oud-Loosdrecht at Brasserie Wetterwille. You can enjoy a delicious meal here on the cozy terrace. Towards the end of your route you will pass Fort Tienhoven from 1850.

The most famous windmill type in the Netherlands. Windmills were not only used to produce flour from cereals, but also for draining polder areas. Natural energy. The most famous windmills can be found in Kinderdijk, really set up as a polder model. A must see!
