Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
There are only 650 meters, but every meter counts. Incidentally, this section of the RS1 is set up as a slow-speed zone.
Too bad that there is no direct exit to the Ruhr promenade. Here you have to either take the elevator, which also likes to fail or you have to carry the bike up the stairs.
If you do not want to, you either have to drive to the train station to get there, or since May 15, 2019, the bridge over the Ruhr has opened and the section to the Ruhruni is ready.

A slow traffic zone on the Radschnellweg, LOL. A prime example of how the Ruhr area (and also the state with its support policy) fails again for itself. The expensive feasibility study on the RS, funded by the federal government with a lot of money, has set clear standards for cycling routes, as used in NL, Denmark and Flanders. Here they are injured in an actually conflict-poor area without need. The federal government should revoke the funding for the feasibility study. Fehplanung # 2.

Up to this point from Essen coming very fast connection to MH without cars and if you're lucky pedestrians on the bike lane. At exactly this point, however, the city of Mülheim has decided to make benches and a structural restriction, which certainly will accommodate the recreational riders and pedestrians, the concept wheel instead of car or train but a bit counteracts, there are no green spaces and rest areas in the middle of the fast lanes for cars and trains.
The current connection to the cycle network of the city of Mülheim is a joke of the capacity (1 elevator & at the main station a narrow ramp in the wrong direction) and the orientation to a fast running traffic.

It is a shame that this planning sloppiness leads to a constantly broken elevator! You can not drive on the Prommenade, because at the end you do not leave the RS1 and do not drive in to Mülheim. Because only with the elevator you could leave the high praise.
