Cycling in Egmond
What could be better than an adventurous bike ride through the dune area between Castricum and Schoorl. The North Holland landscape is incredibly versatile and always fun to explore by bike. In the management of the dunes PWN is increasingly using so-called large grazers. These are animals such as sheep, goats, Exmoor ponies, Shetland ponies, Scottish Highlanders and Konik horses. They ensure that grass and shrubs have no chance to overrun the dune. The cycle route network is very comfortable and many nodes offer a versatile route. We advise you to buy the cycling map from Den Helder to Amsterdam at the VVV. Where you are, you can easily see through the numbers of the nodes. Depending on the condition, there are longer and shorter routes for cycling.
