The route is fully signposted with nodes.
You start this Zeeland bike tour on the dike in Ossenisse and paddle eastward along the banks of the Westerschelde River. The sandbanks you see on your left are called the "Platen van Ossenisse". You follow the dike until you reach Junction 16, where you will ride inland from then on. The meadows around you perfectly reflect the economic activity in the this region: about 90% is agriculture or cattle breeding.
Halfway along the route you arrive at one of the oldest creeks in Zeeland: the Vogelkreek. Food for the ornithologists among us, because several bird species breed here. The redshank, bluethroat and great warbler are a few of them. Various waders also find their fill in the wet meadows here.
You leave the Vogelkreek behind you and cycle on to the next sandbanks: Platen van Hulst. An outer dike area that borders the channel "Gat van Ossenisse" on the east side.
