    The slightly over 40-kilometer-long route is extremely varied, certainly also in terms of nature, because it leads through a small nature reserve in an old moorland, which was drained by hand before 1850 for peat extraction. The result was an agricultural area with small meadows, fields, young deciduous forest and here and there a house.De Lethe is also an old moorland that was drained in the 17th century. In the Eighty Years' War, military fortifications were built on the narrow sand back, but it was rarely fought. But the soldiers' paths were used by peat-cutters to smuggle contraband across the borders.After passing the castle of Wedde, you will soon arrive at the luxurious village of Bellingwolde, home of the Veldkamps Meul'n, a flour mill from 1855. The many beautiful manors in the village clearly show that the high grain prices between 1850 and 1875 brought great wealth. Along the main street is also the museum De Oude Wolden with changing, always special exhibitions.After a short hike, you will be back on the way back to the starting point, the old windmill De Korenbloem, where you can round off the nice bike ride in the cozy tearoom.
