    The second stage promises to be another tough day. The 88-kilometer stage is a varied mix of single tracks and unpaved trails. The scenic void slowly gives way to dense afforestation.There is hardly any time for a warm-up today. The day starts immediately with a challenging single trail between Gieten and Borger. The trails run over the hills and slopes of the Hondsrug that originated in the Ice Age. About 150,000 years ago, a large ice shelf from the North Sea slid across Drenthe, leaving behind a pattern of higher ridges.Just outside Gieten you pass a place that looks a lot like a tropical holiday destination. The swimming lake 't Gasselterveld has unbelievably blue water and a beautiful view of forests. The 50-meter deep pool was created as a result of sand extraction. The part on the east side has been made "ready for swimming" by Staatsbosbeheer. Time for a refreshing swim!At Borger, the route nods westward and then descends again. Along the way you pass another beautiful lake with clear water: the Ellertshaar forest lake. Near Emmen are the trails of the next mountain bike trail of this stage. The single tracks of Sleen run along the edge of the forest. Some tough climbs await here. The height differences are caused by blown-up drifting sand from the period when the surrounding area still consisted entirely of heather landscape.At junction Holsloot you dive under the Rijksweg A37. Direction Coevorden you drive a bit right along the Dutch-German border. Coevorden is a medium-sized city with a rich history. The fortified city was regularly conquered, destroyed and rebuilt in the past. Here are plenty of options to stock up on food and drink for the last part of this stage.Just 10 kilometers outside of Hardenberg, the finish line for today, you reach province number three on the route. Overijssel is home to the Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park and the Lemelerberg National Park. The Hardenberg area has plenty of accommodations in the form of bed & breakfasts, campsites and hotels. There is also no shortage of terraces and restaurants.
