    The piece over the city viaduct from Mülheim main station to the Ruhr promenade has been open since October 24, 2017. The railway bridge over the Ruhr is currently being renovated, then it will first go to the Hochschule Ruhr West Campus Mülheim (May 15, 2019) and "sometime" also to Duisburg.
    In the other direction, Essen, the RS1 currently ends in the middle of the university grounds near Gladbecker Straße (komoot.de/highlight/285615).
    At the moment it looks like this end will last in Essen for the time being: waz.de/region/niederrhein/radschnellweg-rs-1-verzoegert-sich-in-essen-um-jahre- id212576983.html

    100 km long gives the impression that the route is already finished. However, this is not the case. There is only a short section between Essen and Mülheim as developed as in the pictures.

    We are waiting for the realization

    The already completed track shows that the money invested has paid off. I recommend everyone, with or without a bike, to watch the track. For me, this is part of the upcoming infrastructure in local traffic. In NRW this kind of infrastructure has to be pushed much more. From people to us humans, almost CO2 neutral.

    So, it should be mentioned, that the next piece will be released at the earliest in February 2017. Otherwise, I can only recommend this route to every cyclist, it is always a pleasure to drive there.

    In particular, because the project is still partially in the implementation, it might be interesting to inquire about the current state of affairs from time to time, see: rs1.ruhr

    Good evening Julia, if you still need something for your work, here's a little stop for an "active" cyclist; Personally, I think the RS1 is perfect and I'm definitely faster in the Gruga in Essen by bike from Oberhausen than by car, but the signs in MH around the "entry" of the RS1 can be "found" (in the truest sense of the Word) absolutely miserable and confusing. Otherwise the "exits" are well signposted

    Part (length) is added ?? That includes the existing part
    directly to?? Info is helpful for tour in the coming year
    Would be nice if someone on site could tell you - thank you

    "Regierungsbeziirk Münster" in the location is of course nonsense. The finished part exclusively in the RB Dusseldorf. Also, the future RS1 will be located almost exclusively in the RB Dusseldorf and Arnsberg. It is also not a point, but a section currently about 15 km long.

    Hello Mr. Sellars,
    the RS1 cycle route is ready from the University of Essen to Mülheim main station. Route length approx. 10-13 km.
    In between (near Essen Schönebeck / Mülheim border) there is a connection to the Grugaradweg because you can go down to the Ruhr and get there on the Ruhrtal-Radweg.

    This bike path is like a highway. For those who want to move quickly between Hamm and Duisburg, this track with the finest asphalt is perfect. Six meters wide, 100km long. Radlerherz what do you want more?

    The RS1 is a great and very fast to cycle road between Mülheim / Ruhr and Essen or vice versa.

    Fast bike path that connects cities without main roads and traffic lights.

    It's really amazing what you can do with old railway lines.
    The RS1 is a prime example, but only from Duisburg to Essen.
