Bicycle route - Strabrechtse Heide 65.2 km

Description >

This big circular route across the Strabrechtse Heide goes beyond De Groote Heide alone. The ‘Heidecafé De Strabrechtse Heide’ café in Heeze makes for a nice start of this route, as it is the starting point of several hiking and cycling routes on the Strabrechtse Heide. Almost immediately after leaving the Heidecafé you will find yourself cycling through the Herbertusbossen, a beautiful forest area west of the village of Heeze. And as soon as you leave the cover of trees, you have arrived on the Strabrechtse Heide, with its breathtaking heathland vistas.

You then leave the Strabrechtse Heide and De Groote Heide via Someren, after which the cycling route continues through lovely villages such as Asten, Voordeldonk, Zeilberg, Deurne and Ommel, to eventually return to 'The Pearl of Brabant': Heeze. Once again the Heidecafé makes an ideal place to sit down and rest for a bit.
