TTT 2000 01 Rondje Altena
Published: 08/02/2019
Noordwaard Weg in Werkendam
Restaurant (H) honest Eating & Drinking in Hank is the start and end point of this 1st TTT of 2000. Immediately after departure you will be in the National Park "De Biesbosch" and will spend almost the entire TTT on nice narrow roads. From KM 22 you have to deal with KM 30 with some differences between the Lord and the TomTom map *.

De Biesbosch National Park is the name for a very water-rich nature and recreation area in the Netherlands with freshwater tides, creeks and willow flood forests. It consists of a number of river islands and sand and mud flats in the provinces of Noord-Brabant and Zuid-Holland that lie between the rivers Boven-Merwede and Amer, and that are intersected by the artificial river Nieuwe Merwede. On the east side, the area is bordered by the Land of Heusden and Altena. It can be subdivided into the Brabantse Biesbosch and the Hollandse Biesbosch, the latter again consisting of the Sliedrechtse Biesbosch and the Dordtse Biesbosch. (Source: Wikipedia).

After 43 km you leave Werkendam again to set course in the direction of Almkerk, Wijk and Aalburg & Veen, then you cross the dammed mesh at Giessen in the direction of Poederoijen. You are now about halfway through the TTT, so time for a snack and a drink. You can do this at "De Kraay" in Zuilichem. After lunch you continue your tour through the "Land van Heusden and Altena".

The Land of Heusden and Altena is a region in the north of the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant that is bordered by the Merwede in the north, the Afgedamde Maas and the Heusdensch Kanaal in the east, the Biesbosch in the west and the Bergsche Maas in South. The largest place in the area is Werkendam with around 12,000 inhabitants. Woudrichem is the most historically important place, a fortified city with around 4500 inhabitants. The entire region used to be part of the Groote or Hollandsche Waard. The entire area is located in one municipality: Altena with the capital Almkerk. A total of around 55,000 people (2014) live in 21 villages. Until the opening of the Merwedebrug near Gorinchem in 1961 it was essentially an island with an isolated population. In terms of landscape, it forms the continuation of the Gelderland river area, in particular of the adjacent Bommelerwaard. The clay soil differs greatly from the sandy soil that is more familiar in Brabant. Since January 1, 2019, the entire Land of Heusden and Altena have belonged to a single municipality, namely the Altena merged municipality. In 1994 the region received the status of national park, since then officially called National Park De Biesbosch, and is on the list of protected nature reserves. The Biesbosch is partly used for agriculture, is designed for various forms of recreation and also offers space for the storage of clean surface water in specially constructed reservoirs for the continuity of the drinking water supply.

And then you drive along Aalst, Nederhemert, Velddriel, Hedel, Ammerzoden, Drongelen & Dussen to reach Hank again at the end point.

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

Route details:
The route has been made the same for TomTom, Garmin and MyRoute-app Navigation users. That has been successful everywhere except between the route points: 15, 16, 17, 18, 36 and 37 (Purple), where TomTom and Garmin do not agree with each other. Not a big problem, if you drive alone you just follow the instructions of your GPS, if you drive in a group then you follow the driver. At the route points 16, 18 and 37 the two come together again and your GPS will follow the route correctly again.
rp 32 - Lunch possibility at "De Kraay" in Zuilichem.

About this route collection
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 roads with a roadbook in the tank bag or router roll.

You have also seen the Tank Bag Tours of 2000 one by one, from now on also as a collection of 2000.

All routes in this collection have been checked and made equal for TomTom, Garmin and MyRoute-app Navigation by a RouteRpert MyRoute-app. The routes follow as much as possible the original route as it was made at the time.
