Let me take you to the Green Divide! Dutchman Erwin Sikkens has created the ultimate green traverse of the Netherlands, connecting the Utrechtse Heuvelrug and the full length of the Veluwe. With a length of 300 kilometers, the Green Divide is the longest green route in the Netherlands.
Expect many unpaved double-track sections, forest paths, singletrack trails and gravel roads, complemented by paved bicycle paths and the occasional road connection. The route largely consists of paths surrounded by nature, alternating between forest and heathland.
The Green Divide uses open countryside paths and is suitable for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in nature for 300 kilometers. The Green Divide is not a race, but a (bikepacking) route for gravel and nature lovers that you can cycle in one or more days. The starting point is Naarden-Bussum train station and after 300 kilometers of greenery you will arrive in the centre of Zwolle.
Since the Veluwe and Utrechtse Heuvelrug offer many places to sleep, such as (nature) campsites, hotels and B&Bs, we can choose to ride the Green Divide in 1 or 2 days.
This will be a great adventure.
