Cycle route ferry across for a pound of fruit
Buren, Culemborg, Beusichem
The beautiful river area offers a true cycling experience in itself, but this route also takes you across the Lek and Neder-Rijn rivers. At junction 37 you will find the ferry Spes Futura, which is available all year round and takes you from Rijswijk to Wijk bij Duurstede. Between nodes 52 and 42, there is the option of taking the ferry across the Lek from Schalkwijk to Culemborg.
The route takes you further along the attractive orchards of the Betuwe, located around picturesque Buren. In spring, you can enjoy the beautiful blossoms here, while in summer and autumn you will find an abundance of apples, pears, plums and cherries along the route.
A visit to Oranjestad Buren is made extra attractive by the presence of historic buildings and the fascinating Museum Buren & Oranje. After you've crossed all the ferries, you might have some space left in your bike bag for a pound of Betuwe fruit.
Before starting this cycle route, it is advisable to take some cash with you for the ferries and check the sailing times in advance. That way, you will be well prepared for a relaxing and exciting cycle route through this beautiful area.
