    The only piece of RS1 vision that has come true that you can ride on. A dream with quiet zones, separated stripes and often separate pedestrian walkway. Especially the two endpoints are worth a visit, so the Café "Radmosphäre" at the pond and the fully developed end of the track in Mühlheim. Makes you hungry for more and I can not wait for the whole route from Duisburg to Hamm to finish (2030?) ...

    The ambitious project "RS1" is taking shape. The bike path should be over 100 kilometers long and lead to Hamm. The first ten kilometers are completed and can be inspected and blasted. If this is pulled through, then this is at least a pretty unique bike path once through the Ruhr area.

    The RS1 between Mühlheim and Essen is part of my standard round. Mostly it is provided with asphalt, in between there is a section of heavily compacted sand. That's no problem with the road bike.

    Yeah, but ......
    Yes, super developed
    Yes, fast connection between Mh & E .... Ideal for commuters (and for Sunday drivers)
    Yes, also fast to drive
    Yes, branches well signposted
    Yes, nice lakes and viewpoints in Essen - City
    Nice track? No ..... Most of the time on the railway line long, the other side embankment .... (I'm probably spoiled by the Lower Rhine.) I love trails where there is something to see ......)

    RS1 largely beautifully expanded (except for an unpaved section (as of 2018)) and always worth a round

    Shows a lot of what could go if you wanted to.Also shows what else you can mess up ... the whole street furniture junk in Mülheim, but also the interruptions due to paved sections. You wouldn't get the idea on the freeway.The RS1 should range from Duisburg to Hamm. I have serious doubts whether this century will go this far. Until then, you can put together an east-west connection through the Ruhr area from RS1 and various railway routes.

    Highly recommended especially during the week. Only a short section is not as well paved otherwise it is really TOP

    At the level of the promenade in Mülheim there is an elevator, so that you have direct access from the RS1 - also by bike. Nice, barrier-free detail.
