The route runs through rural areas, from the Damme Hills to the recreation area encompassing Barsseler-Saterland, the Thülsfeld reservoir and Hasetal valley, past scenic lakes and rivers of all sizes and across arresting moorland and sandy heaths. It's a chance to enjoy cycling at its best, along quiet country roads with over 100 stops at cosy farmhouses, welcoming farm cafés and picturesque country inns. There are also numerous farm shops along the route, where visitors can buy fresh local produce or handicrafts from the region. And for a proper night's sleep, why not try out one of the hay hotels? Those wanting slightly more energetic pit stops can choose from guided farm and garden tours, carriage rides, riverside treks and canoe trips – and it's even possible to help out with the harvest. Last but not least are the many interesting museums, historical collections and windmills located at various pit stops along the route that give an insight into the region's cultural history. Just like their counterparts in motorsport, the pit stops here are places to stop, refuel and recharge your batteries.
