    The donkey is the connection from Essen Kettwig to Ratingen Lintorf. A bad bike path is located most of the way next to the road. But not on the bottom piece where the serpentines are. Can you drive when you have to reach a destination, but it is not a highlight for me. A much nicer alternative is the panorama bike path Niederbergbahn, which you can drive from Kettwig to Hösel.

    We can also switchbacks, not Alp de Huez, but also nice.

    Great slope! Just make fun, then you can heat the highway long.

    It depends from which direction you are coming. For me it was really exhausting 😀, but nice 👍.
