Driehuis to Rijsenhout

Driehuis, Haarlem, Netherlands

Easy

A sunny and busy Sunday afternoon return from the coast in late October skirting central Haarlem. Maximum concentration required in some parts IRL! A varied but typical Dutch backdrop and terrain with; windmills, canals, houseboats, bicycles and everyone busy going about their various activities. Points of interest along the way include Molen De Adriaan, Kick Pruijsbrug (bicycle bridge) over the A4 motorway, and Stelling van Amsterdam (ring of forts : 1880-1920). We pass three of the 42 forts - Vijfhuizen, Hoofddorp and Aalsmeer. The latter is the end point and houses the Crash Museum (1940-45 Air War & Resistance).
