    Very nice paved railway track for the road bike with some great views! :-)

    Former railway line, without crossing, in the week when I traffic, coming from Kettwig up the slope and then hunting down to reward them down again. But only fun in low traffic fun!

    The whole bike path (from Kettwig to Velbert) is beautiful and well developed. But gets very crowded by pedestrians, cyclists, inline skaters, children playing, especially on weekends.

    Uphill with the racing bike, especially to warm up (10km, 200m difference in altitude) goes very well - downhill is too fast with the racing bike (or deliberately drives slowly around other road users, but then cools down).

    Super asphalt and uphill absolutely feasible!

    The panoramic bike path is absolutely good to drive and in both directions. Only up in Velbert on the Saubrücke the asphalt has suffered something.

    Cycling on the old Niederbergbahn railway line. Very beautifully situated to the Baldeney lake in Essen

    From Velbert you are just before the end of the old railway line and can enjoy a beautiful view here. From Essen-Kettwig you have the steep increase (my Garmin reported up to 15% gradient on the first meters of the railway line behind it. Then it goes up to Velbert with about 1.8%.

    My daily training route, just watch out in Heiligenhaus, a lot of pedestrians and children, just annoying the eternal racing bikes🤔

    The journey to Wülfrath is definitely worthwhile. The route ends at the time tunnel (geological history, Bochumer Bruch, nice cafe at the weekend) into the train path cycle path of the Angertalbahn.Head west to Angerbach towards Ratingen and Duisburg-Süd, east to the Sülfrath-Aprath S-Bahn station. From there continue via Düssel to Wuppertal-Vohwinkel with connection to the Solinger Korkenzieher-Trasse or the Nordbahntrasse and Kohlenbahntrasse to Hattingen.

    Simply good subsurface; sometimes too many people
