Giant Deutschland planned an e-bike ride.
January 27, 2021
At 111 kilometers, this lap is quite a board. But don't worry: the route is so beautiful that time flies by. In addition, the tour is designed in the form of a figure eight, so that - if it is too long for you in one piece - you can easily split it into two wonderful individual tours or spontaneously shorten it on the way.It starts at Fahrrad Schlitzer in Essen Rüttenscheid. From here you roll straight in the direction of the Ruhr and thus also in the direction of green - there really is no faster way out of the city. It takes less than three kilometers until you have a great view of the Baldeneysee and the cozy Essen district of Werden from the impressive weir. This idyll will stay with you for a while: You cycle on the Ruhrtalradweg directly along the banks of the Ruhr to Essen Kettwig. Kettwig has a really beautiful old town - it is worth taking a break in one of the numerous cafés not far from the Ruhr.If you liked the route this far, you will love the next section: Now you turn onto the panorama cycle path between Kettwig and Wülfrath, which bears this name for a reason. Far away from any traffic, you drive for the next twenty kilometers over a former railway line, from which you can always enjoy magnificent views.If you think there is no better way, look forward to the next section of this tour. It begins in the beautiful half-timbered village of Gruiten, from where you can drive straight to the world-famous Neandertal. Pure idyll awaits you here. Over lonely roads and beautiful forest paths you follow the course of the Düssel until the path spits you out directly at the place where the Neanderthal man was found.You will now drive back to Essen Kettwig via quiet roads that run over wide fields and through shady forests. Here you follow the Ruhr again, but this time to Mülheim. You will finally come back to Essen via the RS1 rapid cycle route. Here you can get off at the main train station or continue to the starting point of the tour.Tip 1: You can easily adapt this tour to your needs. For example, you can travel by train and join the group in Essen, Mülheim or Erkrath. If the whole tour is too long for you, you can shorten it in several places. A look at our map shows you where this is easily possible.Tip 2: If you want to see where your Giant bike comes from, this is THE opportunity. Shortly before the highlight "Tour de France-worthy ascent shortly after Erkrath" is the Giant Germany headquarters on the left.The perfect bike for this tour: Giant Fathom E +giant-bicycles.com/de/fathom-eplus-ex-2021
