The approximately 62 kilometers long route starts well, because you cycle on a cultural monument. The planting along the J. Buiskoolweg dates back to about 1928. Landscape architect Vroom was then commissioned to plant the street with ornamental shrubs. This planting was exceptional and for this reason, the Dutch monument authority decided in 2001 to declare the entire way to the monument.Continue through a spacious landscape towards Sellingen. Afterwards, you cycle through Ter Borg, a peasantry that may have developed in the Middle Ages. It comprises four farms, three of which have the status of a national monument. Then you will pass the Theater van de Natuur. It underlines the importance of the new nature around Sellingen and is a concept by Adriaan Nette. In 1996, the artist started with the stairs. As of this year, almost every year, a new natural stone level with a text by a visiting director has been added.A little further on you see the forest Lieftinghsbroek, the only forest nature reserve in the province of Groningen. Behind the Metbroekbos, a beautiful nature reserve, you can reach the Vlagtwedde church and the 1950 Monument to the Allied Soldiers Monument. Then follow the last few kilometers through Veelerveen along Frank Sciarone's Moor. 1997), and back to De Entourage.
