A short, crisp round through the Bergisches Land with one or the other well-known climb.The exit starts at the petrol station on Bonner Wall. Over the Severinsbrücke it zigzags through the districts of Cologne on the right bank of the Rhine until you finally reach Refrath and Lückerath. Finally you can do the first meters in altitude! A little dangling over the Milchborntalweg to Bensberg and there the pulse rises: It goes up to the Bensberg Castle. The legendary, paved ascent is an integral part of Around Cologne. Take a short rest and enjoy the view of Cologne. It continues to Moitzfeld and Ehrenfeld. Shake your legs out and let them roll relaxed to Immekeppel.You can also drive flat in the Bergisches Land. But never for long, because the next climb is coming faster than you think: the Bärbroich. A nice climb through the forest. 1.5 kilometers with an average gradient of 7 percent. Once at the top it is time to “let it roll” to Herkenrath. From there it goes on side streets through Ober- and Untersteinbach. From Dürscheid up to the top. Finally another climb - but everything is easy. With an average gradient of only 3 percent, even a flat-country Cologne resident is only slightly challenged.The rapid descent to Herrenstrunden is followed - how could it be otherwise - another ascent. And that's a very fine one: a kilometer in length with an average gradient of six percent. At the top of the intersection you can build an extra loop over Rommerscheid. Or you turn directly right onto a dirt road through the small hamlet of Combüchen, cross the main road and drive on the panorama path to the coffee and waffle stop at Affemia. Here you can enjoy the beautiful view over the entire Cologne Bay.A small request: Since there are many hikers here when the weather is nice, please drive carefully and be considerate of everyone else.From here it goes down back to Kölle with a few sections for shooting. Here you can pull the cut up again neatly.Have fun and greetings to Thorsten!
