Cycle route: Historical stories by bike

TOTAL DISTANCE

38
km
The first residents came to live in Lelystad on September 28, 1967.

The history of the city is only 55 young, but the stories are no less interesting and beautiful! The plans of engineer Cornelis Lely were grand: the Zuiderzee was closed off and the Flevopolder was reclaimed. These grandiose plans brought about a lot. 
This cycling route takes you through the city and nature that was built almost 60 years ago. At the stops you can listen to a short story that tells what the construction of these grand plans entails. Ride, listen and enjoy!
