    Beautiful road surface. Sloping. Fairly little traffic. You can accelerate here.

  • Antonie Fountain

    One of the most beautiful parts of the Netherlands by bicycle. First up the Elsterberg, wide cycle path separate from the road, up between the trees. Then the Defense Road, several climbs and technical bends in the descent. To top it off, the climbs between the trees on the Autoweg. Most beautiful cycling piece in the area, and that says a lot!

    Every cyclist in our area knows this one, so it is very populair(and crowded).
    Keep paying attention to the other people on this street.

  • Marinus van de Velde

    Great cycling environment with a relatively large amount of climbing and descending (for Dutch standards).
