    The first day immediately promises to be a tough one. In approximately 95 kilometers you cycle from the Wadden Sea into the Groningen interior. Enjoy the vastness and emptiness.
    The easiest way to reach De Noordkaap is by train from Roodeschool. The first kilometers of this monster tour run parallel to the Wadden Sea. After this the road bends in the direction of the Groningen polder land. The view here mainly consists of meadows and vast fields. The route starts on asphalt. This way your muscles can warm up a bit for the rest of the day.
    From Appingedam, the asphalt slowly gives way to gravel, sand and mud. The route curves between the Schildmeer and Dannemeer. At the height of the Zuidlaardermeer you pass the first provincial border of the tour.When you arrive in the province of Drenthe, it doesn't take long before you see the first dolmens. The route passes the only archaeological reserve in the Netherlands. There is a great density of archaeological monuments in the form of burial mounds, field roads and, of course, dolmens. This is also the province where the first official mountain bike trail of the entire tour is on the program.The Zuidlaren course has a total length of 9 kilometers, of which approximately 70 percent consists of single track. The Zuidlaren course overflows into the Anloo course, which is a lot longer at 39 kilometers.Further south you penetrate deeper into the Drentsche Aa National Landscape. Here you will find the best preserved ash village landscape of Western Europe. An area characterized by historic villages and ash trees. The rest of the day you cycle along moors, vast forests and sand lakes.
