    Today you cycle through beautiful nature reserves from North Brabant to Limburg. You leave Eindhoven and cycle along the Eindhoven Canal to Mierlo. From there you cycle through the heath and fens. On the Strabrechtse Heide, the small bushes, fens and shifting sands alternate.The beautiful vast open landscape is almost un-Dutch. What a difference with the busy cities you cycled through the previous days. South of the Strabrechtse Heide you cycle along the Keelven on the Somerense Heide. This used to be a large heathland and it ran from the Strabrechtse Heide via the Pan to the Weerterbos. But as with many areas, and this area too, these have been converted into production forests for mining in the past. Fortunately, since the mines were closed, people have regained an eye for nature and these production forests are being restored to mixed forests and small-scale heathland with fens.After 45 kilometers you will cycle past De Groote Peel, a vast, wetland and quiet raised moor area that is mainly known for its many bird species and special history. At the Peelkiosk (with conservatory and outdoor terrace) you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee and lunch.Cycle further to the village of Eind and then Hulsen, after which you continue along the canal to the south. After the Schoorkuilenven you turn left, after which you cycle along the meadows, through small villages and large farms. Today's destination is the white town of Thorn: the white pearl of Limburg. Thorn is known for its whitewashed houses, monumental buildings and cobbled streets. You can see the Thorn Abbey Church, which towers high above the white houses, from far and wide.
