Gravel Along the Castle10 Jun 2020 // The Netherlands , Ruurlo
There is something mystical about castles, manors and farmlands. Combine this with beautiful gravel roads you have all the ingredients a good ride should have. A perfect ride if you don’t want to spend the whole day in the saddle.
This route is do-able on a road bike equipped with beefy tires, but in dry seasons I would recommend riding it with with 32+ mm tires. Otherwise the loose sand could be too gnarly.
The route starts from a parking spot in Ruurlo, parking is free but on sunny days it can be busy! From the parking spot you can already see the first castle, that is just across the road.
Time for a quick coffeestop to get refueled. We have made a selection of the best coffeestops alongside the route.
