Cycling route lake Veluwe
Putten, Ermelo, Nijkerk
In the deed of the Frisian nobleman Folckerus (from 855) the name Putten is mentioned for the first time. In this deed, goods and lands are transferred to the monastery of Werden (near Essen in Germany), and Putten is referred to as 'in vico qui dicetur Puthem' (as hamlet or village). After the church was founded, Putten is a collection of hamlets that together form a church village, a situation that lasted until the tenth century. Nijkerk and Voorthuizen did not become independent until 1416. You cycle along the Wolderwijd, one of the Veluwe border lakes. The province of Flevoland is located on the other side. At the level of Strand Horst, the Wolderwijd begins and continues in a northerly direction to the aqueduct near Harderwijk.
