RTC DSD - Touren planned a road ride.
May 23, 2020
If you follow our suggestion, you can warm yourself slightly uphill between Schildgen and Voiswinkel for almost 5 km. Let's start with the legendary AFFEMIA Kom (1), which comes across as lovely, but has already made a lot of people out of the back. Since we are not inhumans, you can now relax 7 km until the next ramp is in the way with the wall from Eisenkaul (2) (Richerzhagen steep part). But it just goes straight ahead. Then you can let your legs dangle, because on the Hungerbach to Weier Climb (3) you will need them again before you drive through the lovely Petersberg to Bornen and find your inner ramp sow again on about 5 km. If you are going to the Tre Croci des Bergischen, then at least on the most common variant, the Hembach Climb (4). Not 900 meters long, but to the point of 100 meters in altitude. Do the math or better not. Be careful when the lactate shoots in, very rarely there are vehicles on the narrow street. You will probably make a stop at the photo point of the DSD Classics afterwards, even if you find some relaxation on the following descent, a flat passage and a few more subtle uphill passages. Before the next ramp we chase you into a fast descent, at the end of which you should brake fully and carefully turn left, since cars and motorbikes can come from the right. If you drive into the small town, put on the small sheet as a precaution, because the Büchel Climb (5) gets out of the village straight to the point. Ok, you're in a good mood now, right? Then look forward to one of our tour highlights with the characteristic name Röttgen in the face (6). Klein Alpe d’Huez with just under 20% lets you glassy eyes into the next downhill run and at the subsequent Miebach Climb (7) you can think about the end for 800 meters. Either your own or the Rampensau Challenge, because between you and the grand finale at AFFEMIA at the most beautiful coffee shop in the Bergisches Land there is only the ramp on the Bücheler Weg to the crossroads (8). At this point CHAPEAU and OINK! OINK! to everyone who wants to try the Rampensau Challenge in one trial.Final notes: We tried to leave out dangerous spots from the start. Let the descents go easy, pay attention to oncoming traffic on the smallest dirt roads and treat residents, walkers and hikers with respect. Thank you!
