The Moeren & The Sea
Nieuwpoort, by the sea. But this route will not let you see her. We leave 4 km from the sea At BarVéloo, from where you can easily cycle to the sea after your ride.
We depart along the Yser, which will run like a red thread through this adventure. With one exception, we will only encounter perfect gravel today.
Not just the railroad from WW1 that we will meet twice. Will remind of this period. You will see the Yser Tower in the distance for almost the entire ride. The Trench of Death and various landscape elements ensure that the war is never far away.
Just before we reach Diksmuide we take a ferry. (if it is not sailing during your adventure, follow the Yser until the first bridge and then return along the Kasteelstraat, over the next bridge follow the water on the right and you will return to the track)
Just about half way you come through a beautiful nature reserve ‘de blankaart’. A stop at the watchtower with picnic table is definitely worth it.
