Cycle route Weesp - Spiegelplas - Hilversum
Bergse Pad Summer 2008
I have earlier described a cycle route to Hilversum but this one is a little longer. I have only tried the route a couple of times but I'm looking forward to use it more often. Especially the landscape near Spiegelplas is beautiful.
One of the more picturesque places you will se...
...where the house and the garden are especially beautiful.
The cycle route:
When you come from the centre of Weesp turn right after you have passed fort Ossenmarkt and follow 's-Gravelandseweg along the river Vecht. After about 4 km you can see the remains of fort Uitermeer, which you should make a break to see. After the fort follow the road Kreugerlaan to you reach Gooilandseweeg. There you turn to the right.
I'm always fascinated by all the different boats on the river Vecht.
Summer - 2008
I'm especially thrilled when I see one of the old ones....
....but they don't have to be old as long as they are well designed.

Drive to the left down Googpad and follow it about 100 meters before you drive to the left and down Dammerkade. After approximately 250 meters you will reach Bergse Pad to your right. Now it is time to take a break and enjoy the landscape.

After the break follow Bergse Pad to the end of the road. There you will reach Stichts End where you turn to your right. After about 200 metres you will meet Herenweg, which you follow till you have to cross a small canal. On the other side you will find Noordereinde. Follow the way till you reach Leeuwenlaan at your left. If you follow that you will come to s-Gravelandseweg which will lead you to the centre of Hilversum.
