Surface: paved and unpaved roads. This route crosses an area around Weert where you will not meet any human for miles and it takes you through the nature reserves De Tungelerwallen and the Stramprose Heide. The route also runs partly along the Belgian border.
The route around Weert is a route with little difference in height, but still very nice and varied. The route mostly follows existing unpaved paths through forests and meadows. The subsoil consists of sand or clayey forest soil. The sand pieces are always heavy. In dry conditions the sand is loose, in wet conditions it sucks. This southern loop is mainly on wide paths. All in all, the variation of the environment makes the route very varied.
