Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
ROAAR went cycling.
February 4, 2021
A flat, mostly windy round through the north-west of Cologne on dirt roads and side roads with little traffic.This round leads along the Rhine via Worringen in the north-west of Cologne to shortly before Grevenbroich. The route is mostly flat and mostly leads over field and bike paths.The highlight for climbers is the Vollrather Höhe on about half of the route. The wind is a constant companion here in the opencast mining area. It drives the huge clouds of water vapor from the power plants across the country and all too often prevents a new record.The round is named after the village of Anstel, which belongs to the municipality of Rommerskirchen. If you need some refreshment in between, you are in good hands at the “Eiscafé Venezia” in Stommeln.
