Welcome to the Veluwe! This area is almost a thousand square kilometers in size and consists of various domains. This route connects the most beautiful gravel paths in the northern and southern parts of the nature park.Start the day with a coffee at the nearby mountain bike museum in Arnhem, a must see for the (mountain) bike enthusiast. You pass the mountain bike museum after 1.5 km. Owner Jeroen van Roekel collects hundreds of different brands of bicycles and likes to talk about them.You will reach the Veluwe around Apeldoorn over the most beautiful gravel strips through the Deelerwoud and Loenermark. In Loenen you can go to Bike and Eat for coffee or in one of the other cafes in the village.The last part of the route crosses the Crown Domain Loo. This beautiful estate is hunting grounds of the royal family and usually open to the public. There is a chance that you will spot wild boars, deer and deer. The royal family hunts here between September and Christmas. Check the website kroondomeinhetloo.nl to know when they will fire, because then you will not be able to cycle here.The day ends at Kootwijk in the heart of the Veluwe. You can sleep at nature camping Zanderdennen or a B&B in the village. If you want to interrupt the day earlier, you can camp at nature campsite Zegenoord in Loenen.

Lelystad. So cycle in the back to Harderwijk. And from there you can fully enjoy yourself. Both on the MTB and on the road bike.
