TTT 1996 03 Over de Utrechtse Heuvelrug
Slot Zeist
The route starts in Leusden at "De Gezelligheid" and has the terminus at "Pannenkoekenhuis Bergzicht" in Woudenberg. In the meantime you drive over the Utrechtse Heuvelrug.

The Utrechtse Heuvelrug is a sand ridge in the landscape of the Dutch provinces Utrecht and Noord-Holland between the peripheral lakes in the northwest and the Rhine in the southeast. The contours of the long ridge running from Huizen to Rhenen are clearly visible everywhere. The Utrechtse Heuvelrug has several 'peaks' above 50 meters. The highest point is the Amerongse Berg with 69.2 meters above sea level. The southernmost point is the Grebbeberg.
The Utrechtse Heuvelrug has a lot of forest. In addition, we find a number of heathlands and some shifting sands. The area stretches from the Gooimeer to the Nederrijn over a total length of approximately 50 km. The total area is approximately 23,000 hectares. This makes it the largest forest area in the Netherlands after the Veluwe.

You will pass include Soesterberg Air Base:

Soesterberg Air Base was a military airfield near Soesterberg, between Utrecht and Amersfoort. The airport was the cradle of military aviation in the Netherlands; in 1913 the Aviation Department (LVA) of the army made its first flights here. Due to cuts in defense, the base was closed and closed in November 2008. The largest part of it has since been managed as a nature reserve: the Park Vliegbasis Soesterberg.

Soesterberg air base has been laid out on the Sandr van Soesterberg, an almost flat range of sand and gravel, which has been rinsed out during the Saalian, the penultimate ice age.

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

About this region
Utrecht ( YOO-trekt, also UK: yoo-TREKHT, Dutch: [ˈytrɛxt] (listen)) is the fourth-largest city and a municipality of the Netherlands, capital and most populous city of the province of Utrecht. It is located in the eastern corner of the Randstad conurbation, in the very centre of mainland Netherlands; it had a population of 357,179 as of 2019.Utrecht's ancient city centre features many buildings and structures, several dating as far back as the High Middle Ages. It has been the religious centre of the Netherlands since the 8th century. It lost the status of prince-bishopric but remains the main religious centre in the country. Utrecht was the most important city in the Netherlands until the Dutch Golden Age, when it was surpassed by Amsterdam as the country's cultural centre and most populous city. Utrecht is host to Utrecht University, the largest university in the Netherlands, as well as several other institutions of higher education. Due to its central position within the country, it is an important transport hub for both rail and road transport; the busiest train station in the Netherlands, Utrecht Centraal, is in the city of Utrecht. It has the second highest number of cultural events in the Netherlands, after Amsterdam. In 2012, Lonely Planet included Utrecht in the top 10 of the world's unsung places.

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.
