Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
Why is that called "on the donkey" here? The answer is: There used to be not this beautiful road here, but a steep path that the carters had to climb. The path was so steep that a donkey always had to be ready here to be harnessed to the carts because otherwise they would not get up here. In addition, there was always a saddled donkey waiting here in case the Baroness von Nesselrode felt the need to go to the forest.
Today there is a road that winds up in serpentines - quite remarkable for the Ruhr area. Not an inhuman challenge but a nice change. ;)

Especially if, like me, you only arrive there towards the end of the tour, another nice 9% to squeeze the rest of the glycogen out of the muscles or, as in my case, to bring yourself to the limit of giving up due to too little food on the way.
As a disadvantage, I find the not so well paved bike path and the alternatively narrow, curvy road, so it is more of a double-edged thing.
