TTT 1997 03 Rondje Randstad
Published: 27/01/2019
Langs de Meije in Bodegraven
The route starts in Haastrecht and soon you will pass locks along nice narrow roads, past farms and villages. You go along the Oude Rijn to Woerden, along the Meije to Bodegraven, along the Amstel to Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, where it is time for coffee.
After coffee along the Waver in the direction of Waverveen, to drive between the Vinkeveense Plassen under the A2 to Baambrugge, along the Angstel to Loenersloot and then to Vreeland. Via Vreeland along the Vecht to Loenen aan de Vecht. Then you come through Nieuwersluis, Breukelen to turn right in Maarssen towards Haarzuilens for lunch, because of all that swinging you get a pull.
After lunch via Portengen and the Woerdens Verlaat to turn right in Zegveld to swing along the Meije to the Woerdens Verlaat. Along and between the Nieuwkoop lakes to Nieuwkoop to drive to Zwammerdam via Aarlanderveen. In Zwammerdam you cross the Oude Rijn once again to drive via Reeuwijk-Brug via narrow roads, you continue to Gouda to cross the Hollandsche Rijn and then continue to wind along until the terminus in Haastrecht.

Because I have driven large parts of this route myself, this route gets 4 stars.

Route details:
rp 22 - Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, various options for drinking coffee on the right side of the route. (+/- 1H36M driving time)
rp 37 - Haarzuilens, lunch possibility at "De Vier Balken". (+/- 2H50M driving time)
On the way more than enough moments to capture your bike with a nice background.
