The rides of the Market Garden tour are filled with interesting memorials and museums, but of course, also nice riding through the “Kempen” and "Peel en Maas” areas.

Ride 1 of the Market Garden tour will take you through the wooded area of the Kempen, with a lovely stop at a restaurant hidden within these woods. Later you will be heading towards the actual city where the ground offensive of operation Market Garden was launched, where you will be able to visit a Market Garden related museum. Ride 1 ends at the true Corridor where the liberators set foot on Dutch territory for the first time. With its 150 km / 93 miles you will have enough time to enjoy all the stops and the riding. A good first ride for the Market Garden tour.

In ride 2 of the Market Garden tour we will bring you to the two in our opinion best WW II related museums in this area. One more general WW II and one specifically about the operation Market Garden on the area where the airborne operation marked the beginning of the liberation of the Netherlands. With a nice stop for a drink and a bite to eat and another operation Market Garden related memorial this is another ride well in the Market Garden theme.
|Distance:||165 km (100 miles)|
As there is still enough nice riding to do in this area ánd we can recommend one more WW II related museum we added this ride 3 to the Market Garden tour. The ride of 165 km / 100 miles will take you riding in the valley of the river Meuse, which we will be crossing by a little ferry boat. With one of our favourite cafes as a stop for lunch another good ride in this Market Garden tour.
