Van Oordt's Mersken
This TTT starts in Joure, at the McDonalds and goes over mostly beautiful roads through various smaller pictures through beautiful Friesland and has the end point in Heeg.

This TTT through the Frisian landscape takes you past some municipalities that are also visited during the Eleven Cities Tour. You also regularly pass a canal or a canal in Friesland, in Gorredijk you can visit the Regional Museum Opsterland, Museum Opsterlân was originally a public primary school for which the foundation stone was laid on 1 September 1887. The design of the school is by architect Jacobus Anthonie Meessen, then municipal architect of the municipality of Opsterland. Until 1955 classes were given in the classrooms, but even today knowledge is still central. Knowledge about the history of Gorredijk and the municipality of Opsterland.

About halfway along the route, you can stop at Café Rolbrêge for coffee or lunch, this Café is located on De Nieuwe Vaart (Frisian and officially: Nije Feart) is a canal in the province of Friesland and borders the protected nature reserve the Van Oordt's Mersken , this lies in the lower course of the Boorne (or Koningsdiep) on the transition from sandy soils to peat bogs and on the transition from the lateral gradient of the stream valley. The site has a small-scale variety of various types of grassland and swamps. The area is especially important because of the present blue grasslands, and there are also Dotterbloemhooilanden and large sedge vegetation. The lowest part is an important goose landing place. Of some importance as a breeding ground for species of herb-rich grasslands (papa).

After the stop, we continue through the Frisian landscape and you will pass places like Akkrum, Jirnsum, Poppenwier, Pikesyl, Oudega and finally Heeg.

Because I have not (yet) driven this route myself, this route gets 3 stars.

Ever since the early 90s of the last century, Promotor has been setting out the so-called Tank Bag Tours. You understand that the name still comes from the GPS-free era, when motorcyclists still searched their way on inland roads with a roadbook in the tank bag or router roll.
