This route takes you through the northern part of the Walcheren peninsula, popular for its beaches and beautiful coastline. Natural sand dunes alternate with man-made sea dykes, protecting the low-lying island from the sea. Highlight of the route is the rich merchant town of Middelburg.

You cycle to the old fortified town of Veere. From here the route takes you along the now dammed off Veerse Meer to the North Sea. Via Breezand and Oostkapelle you reach the upper-class seaside resort of Domburg. Along the coast there are sandy beaches where you can stop for a swim. You return to Middelburg through the open polders.

This route can be combined with the Vlissingen Cycle Route, giving you a 57 km-trip around the whole of Walcheren. You can download this combined route as a GPX file.

Review of the Limes Cycle Route

Summer 2014 we cycled the Dutch section of the Limes Cycle Route which follows the northern border of the Roman Empire. How much can you still see of this Roman history? And is the guide book any use if you don't understand Dutch?

Bike accidents and phone use - is there a link?

Using your phone on the bike is dangerous. Or so we've been told for many years. Now a Dutch study has found that there is no direct link between bike accidents and phone use.
