I rode parts of this route, it is really quite nice. Very flat. Lots of land that has been reclaimed form the sea many centuries ago. Nice old farms. Small roads and villages. The only challenge is the afsluitdijk which can be 20 miles of hell because of the wind. Predominite wind direction is from the soutwest. As the Afsluitdijk is the most exposed section of the route it might be wise to do this one clockwise. Or take the short cut, a summer ferry service between Stavoren and Enkhuizen.
