    The Balkan route is a former railway embankment that connects Opladen with Lennep as the cycle path.

    The connection for cyclists and hikers between Opladen and Lennep! Shallow climbs and a panorama from the other side are worth an 'experience'.

    Great track that can bring one from the Bergisches Land to close to the Rhine. I recommend driving in the direction of Leverkusen, so it goes downhill well - later you can then go back over the fields and the forest back towards Müngsten. So this will be a great day trip.

    My "favorite street". Run from RS-Lennep to Leverkusen Opladen and in this direction then the whole time slightly downhill. Great to drive and not heavily frequented. I can only recommend.

    Very nice. Only uphill in the direction of Wuppertal, but it is fun to cycle far away from any traffic.
