Cross the Afsluitdijk, via the 34 km causeway! Begin the day by pedalling through Wieringermeer Polder to the starting point of the dam at Den Oever. The closure dam was completed in 1932 and it cut off the Zuiderzee from the North Sea, necessary to stop the sea from flooding nearby towns. Once the dike was in place, the sea had become a lake and by 1940 the saltwater had been replaced by fresh water from the River IJssel. On the other side of the closure dam, you will find yourself in Friesland province and the town of Makkum.
