komoot planned a mountain bike ride.
November 23, 2017
By car, you are in no time in the suspension railway city on the edge of Ruhrpott and Bergisches Land. You should leave this as fast as possible in the parking lot, which we have chosen as the starting point of this tour, because there are some highlights waiting for you.The steep road towards Wuppertal Zoo is a good warmup program and leads directly onto an old railway track that runs across the zoo. In fact, such things only exist in Wuppertal and that too with a view to the Tiger enclosure.After this wild, animal entry, it goes a bit down to earth. You follow the samba road for a while, which gently but continuously leads uphill and collects altitude for the first descent. It follows a ups and downs: Technical departures alternate with loose transfer routes and sometimes it goes up so steep that it becomes a challenge.At the end of this varied tour, you will be spit out on a beautiful cycle path along the Wupper, which leads you quietly off the road back to the parking lot.
