TOTAL DISTANCE

33
km
Lelystad has existed for less than 50 years, but it certainly already has an image and a number of typical recognizable characteristics. Discover these with this cycling route.

When you say Lelystad, you think of the polder with straight roads, but also of the modern architectural buildings in the city. But the history is also known: land reclamation, the plans of Cornelis Lely and the Werkeiland. The landscape artworks are a good reason to go to Lelystad and of course the famous Outlet Fashion center and the beautiful VOC ship. Cycle along a typical Lelystad!
