Eesveen is a tiny village of 500 inhabitants near Steenwijk. The area is absolutely beautiful! So it makes a great area for cycling.
As yet, I have no photos but I expect to visit often in the coming years.
Just making a start with this first tip.
Eesveen has no shops to speak of, but it has bicycle rentals!
A bike costs 8,50- 9,50 euro per day.
You can also rent mountain bikes and they say they have a great tour in the area with a professional mountain bike guide.
