2018 - From Zomergem to Breskens is just 1 hour on the road, when I take the ferry to the Dutch mainland. Squeezed between water and lakes, I end up near Rotterdam to pitch the tent in an industrial area.
Following the headwind stretch alongside the IJsselmeer, you enjoy the flat scenery and green grasslands with black'n white cows. The last stretch to Delfzijl is easy.
HIGHLIGHTS ALONG THE TRIP

Ride the bike country Holland whenever you want. Moderate summers and poor winters. I enjoy April, may or June the most.
Dutchies are not that fond of free camping. Police wants to regulate everything including overnight stay. So find your own secret nature spot for a well deserved night rest.
Find food and drinks and indulge yourself in all kinds of tastes. 7/7 you will catch your energy fresh food in local stores or hypermarkets.
