The cycle route
The 52 km long cycling tour starts and ends at Beachpark Vlugtenburg. You drive through the forest on the edge of Hoek van Holland, a little later you come across the boulevard. Here you have a beautiful view over the water, the many ships and the port of Rotterdam. Further along the Nieuwe Waterweg you will see some lighthouses on the quay. You drive along the Oranjeplassen, a bird-rich nature reserve. You also cycle along the Vlietlanden, a pristine lake area.
You cycle past both the Kraaiennest and the Wollebrand, two quiet recreational areas with a pond. A nice place to catch your breath and to cool off in the water or in the shade.
