TTT 2006 01 Diemen Nieuwerbrug
Published: 03/03/2019
rp 14 - De Hoef (Utrecht)
This TTT starts in Diemen at the McDonalds and goes over mainly beautiful roads via Abcoude around the Vinkeveense Plassen * to Vinkeveen. Then you drive towards the Nieuwkoopse Plassen **. You are now about halfway along the route, so time to have a bite to eat. You can do this in North.

* The Vinkeveense Plassen is a nature and water sports area in the northwest of the Dutch province of Utrecht, northeast of the village of Vinkeveen. (Source: Wikipedia)
** The Nieuwkoopse Plassen is a nature reserve of 1400 ha in South Holland near the towns of Nieuwkoop, Noorden and De Meije. Of this more than 1000 ha is owned by the Vereniging Natuurmonumenten. The ponds have been created from the 16th century by pealing the area. (Source: Wikipedia).

After lunch you go towards the "Kromme Mijdrecht" *** and you keep following this until just after De Hoef.
*** The Kromme Mijdrecht is a meandering river that runs from the Grecht in Woerdense Verlaat, via De Hoef, to the Amstel near Amstelhoek. It has a length of just over ten kilometers. On this river is a village in the municipality De Ronde Venen named after the river: Kromme Mijdrecht. (Source: Wikipedia)

Then you go in a sort of eight around the Langeraarse Plassen and tap Leimuiden briefly. You then drive back to the Nieuwkoopse Plassen to drive via Zwammerdam and Woerden to the terminus in Nieuwerbrug.

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