Hey, we are Roaar from Cologne and we love road cycling just as much as you do!
Whether you like to wear aero socks, a seat pack, a skinsuit or flannel shirt, whether you ride 8,000 watts or a fixie, the Roaar Cycling Club is open to all. We love the versatility of cycling and the people who do it. Above all, we are into varied routes where the focus is on the experience, not on power.
We would like to share our favourite rides around Cologne with you. Let us inspire you. Stop when and where you like. There's always time for a good photo.
Feel free to share your rides with the hashtag #rideroaarsome, tag us in your rides on komoot and link our Instagram channel @roaar.cc.
A flat, mostly windy round through the north-west of Cologne on dirt roads and side roads with little traffic.
This round leads along the Rhine via Worringen in the north-west of Cologne to shortly before Grevenbroich. The route is mostly flat and mostly leads over field and bike paths.
The highlight for…
A short, crisp round through the Bergisches Land with one or the other well-known climb.
The exit starts at the petrol station on Bonner Wall. Over the Severinsbrücke it zigzags through the districts of Cologne on the right bank of the Rhine until you finally reach Refrath and Lückerath. Finally you can…

The 120-kilometer route takes you through the "Flatlands", the lignite opencast mining area in the west of Cologne, to Düsseldorf and back to the cathedral city.
You start at the Cologne bike stadium and the first notable stopover is the town of Brauweiler, known for its abbey. Attentive Plan Z listeners…
A nice standard circuit for all situations: not too long, not too short, a little flat, a little climbing, a little full throttle - and all of this in a well-coordinated rhythm.
It starts along the Rhine and then through the fields south to the mouth of the Sieg - from there through the Siegauen to Troisdorf…
Once on the north-south passage through the Bergisches Land - there are more than 1,300 meters of altitude difference over Cologne's 111 kilometers, including crisp climbs and undulating ups and downs.
The Bergisch can certainly also be crossed on faster paths, but on this rather low-traffic route you…
The "Brother Klaus Field Chapel" built by Peter Zumthor is an architectural highlight and the route to the northern edge of the Eifel is a real pilgrimage.
It starts flat: a first wave is waiting
in Rösberg on you and from there the route in the direction of Euskirchen steadily increases slightly. A first…
Squadron flight towards Nörvenich: The training lap in the southwest, wide, well-paved dirt roads, wide views over the open field, this is where the cycling community romps.
Ideal for getting out of town for a moment and sniffing some country air and freedom. You can ride it as a brisk training session…
A day trip to the Ahr Valley always gives me the feeling of a nice short vacation. Before you are there, however, you first have to pedal a good 70 kilometers.
The exit starts in Südstadt at the gas station on Bonner Wall. It goes out via Raderberg, Rondorf, Meschenich and Berzdorf. At Brühl you drive…
The 150-kilometer route from Cologne to the Eifel is a real classic for cyclists from the Cologne region.
The route in the direction of Hürth, the “hotspot” of the Cologne cycling scene, starts from the cycling stadium. André Greipel, Nikias Arndt, Phil Bauhaus and Nils Politt live and train here. The…
A varied round into the Bergisch to the Wahnbachtalsperre, which can be combined with a visit to the Sieg. If you want to splash around, pack your swimming trunks or bring enough time to let the bib shorts dry in the sun.
Along the Rhine, you first drive south, before slowly climbing up into the Bergische…
A nice, relaxed after-work round over the Ville with cooling in the Otto-Maigler-See. Pack your swimming trunks and off you go!
The exit starts at the gas station on Bonner Wall and it goes south. You drive via Raderberg, Rondorf, Meschenich and Berzdorf until you take a short but rumbling piece of pav…
The 130 kilometer long, demanding route starts in my new home in Cologne and ends in my old home in Unna. It crosses some regions of North Rhine-Westphalia such as the Rhineland, the Bergisches Land, the Sauerland and the Ruhr area.
From the Cologne bike stadium, the route muddles through Cologne and…
