The alarm clock at 06.00, immediately put on inconspicuous clothes and walking shoes and start walking. We wanted to do some wildlife spotting and thought early in the morning would be the best chance. Initially we mainly saw a lot of Scottish Highlanders up close, but as we approached the edge of the forest we found traces and excrement of a deer and wild boars. Not much later we were rewarded with a complete family of wild boars and then two more times with a deer. Unfortunately unable to take pictures. Really crazy! 🌳🦌🐗

Gravel ride across the Veluwe to Zutphen and back. The way there was very tough, a number of the selected highlights turned out to be inaccessible to cyclists and even contained a large section of almost impassable bridleway. You should definitely cycle around that. The second part of the way there is very beautiful! Had delicious coffee at Van Rossums in Zutphen. Then back along the top over the Veluwe. The way back does contain good passable and very beautiful gravel paths!

First ride from our holiday address on the Veluwe. And a combination of asphalt and gravel. At km 25 a fantastic coffee stop, Jorisbrood. Rarely eaten such delicious sandwiches and coffee. Back straight through the Hoge Veluwe National Park past the Kröller Möller museum; Please note, to be able to cycle here you have to buy a ticket. The route does not contain much gravel and the gravel that is there is very doable.

Nice gravel ride to Bad Bentheim from the Springendal. After about 32 km arrived in Bad Bentheim, many nice terraces and definitely worth a look at the castle. On the way back we saw a lot of beautiful gravel paths (a little more asphalt). Of course we stopped at Erve Kuiper, the birthplace of cycling legend Hennie Kuiper. His cousin also owns the IJskuip here, a great ice cream parlor on the farmyard. Recommended! The devil of the route is in the tail, so in the middle of the summer we came across a few paths with loose sand. Doable on the gravel bike, but be careful. All in all a wonderful trip!
