Zuiderzeeroute – LF Route
I had my Building Social Media Relationships class tonight. This blog is 2-fold:
- 50% of my mark for my class is this blog (how you can help? – follow it, comment on it, and like it 🙂
- researching and planning my cycle trip (with my sisters) to the Netherlands in May 2020
- actually 3-fold – sharing my dutch culture and all the great things that the Netherlands has to offer! – and there are so many!!
Our instructor at the end of class tonight (9 p.m.) said “anyone wanting to stay behind for questions or work on their blog feel free.” I actually out loud said to my classmates “argh!! how can any of you work on your blog this late” and I left. But now here I am 9:56 p.m. blogging! When I got home there was a game-changer waiting for me. A package! The map that I ordered to help plan our trip around the Isjelmeer in the Netherlands came in the mail! Yay!! and I just needed to blog about it right away! I can tell by quickly scanning through it, it is exactly what we need!
Features/details of the Zuiderzeeroute book and maps:
- Cycling along the historical villages around Isjelmeer
- 400 km signposted LF route (LF21, LF22, LF23) – I learned our cycle trip is 400 not 500 km. I am sure a few of my sisters will be happy to hear that!
- 3 double-sided cycle maps scale 1:100,000 – very detailed information on the maps that will help as we travel from village to village, and provides a detailed legend explaining what everything is.
- Places to stay and background information – they list all the places to stay and those that are “bike-friendly”. I find that comment actually funny, because I can’t really see anyone in the Netherlands that is not “bike-friendly”. haha.
- the booklet gives you instructions for use: contents of the maps, how to organize your ride, how and where to begin, selecting places to stay, preparing of the ride re: cycle and packing, and hopping on and off your bike and lots of cycling fun!
- Highlights along the route are included in the booklet
- How to follow the signs on the route – this will be a good one as if I don’t follow a map or instructions I will get lost!
- provides a distance table showing how many kilometers between cities/villages.
I am feeling relieved to have this book and map in hand. It will be a useful tool not only in the planning of our cycle trip but also in May 2020 when we are on our trip. The booklet and map come in a plastic sleeve that will make it helpful when travelling (and I don’t want to say that R word that the Netherlands gets quite a bit of) 🙂
“Happy Cycling” says Landelijk Fietplatform…. which is the company where I purchased the map/booklet.
