The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!! This is because the actual routes from the Groot Frieslandpad to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the Groot Frieslandpad is the shortest distance to the Groot Frieslandpad in a direct line.
The distances between two POIs (point 1 and point 2) are calculated as follows
Total distance = Distance point 1 to nearest point on the Groot Frieslandpad + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the Groot Frieslandpad + Distance between the two nearest points on the Groot Frieslandpad
If points 1 and 2 are close to the Groot Frieslandpad, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from Groot Frieslandpad, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.
It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the Groot Frieslandpad and from the Groot Frieslandpad to the end of a stage! This may e.g. by zooming in on the map and checking for a path or road from the starting point to the Groot Frieslandpad and from the Groot Frieslandpad to the end point.
