Polder bike ride

20 odd years ago, I remember a nice bike ride through the polders, with a pannenkoeken stop in the middle of nowhere. Somewhere not far from The Hague, maybe?

Anyone with ideas of where this might have been? Or suggestions for an equally awesome half-day family ride (must have the pancakes)!

Thanks in advance!

Hmmmm.. pancake houses in Google in Nootdorp adjoining the highway, and in Maasland in the fields - but Maasland is quite a bike ride away. Closest I could find is

Het Zoetermeersche Koffie- en Pannekoekenhuys

Dorpsstraat 108

Which is definitely not middle of nowhere but in the old, scenic, part of Zoetermeer which later quadrupled in size with lots of boring highrise quarters.

You could make a route Haag-Voorburg-Zoetermeer avoiding the inhabited areas and then from Zoetermeer cross over into more polder area to Delft/Schipluiden, and return to Hague circulambulating Delft. Or counterclockswise and then to Zoetermeer.

All the best,

Between Schipluiden and Vlaardingen you can have some pancakes here (http://www.vlietzicht.com/). It's on a quite nice cycling route through the polders.

Thanks for the replies--neither looked correct so I did a bit more searching and found this: http://www.meyendel.nl/

I'm going to do a bit more research--it seems promising: dunes, bike ride, middle of nowhere... :-)
