    This tour is just typical Ruhrpott. A bit of urban flair, a lot of trails, of course the Ruhr and an overnight stay in the trailer, which you simply earned after the "Maloche".You start in the middle of the pot, from the main station in Bochum. A few kilometers the route leads you out of the city and over the area of ​​the Ruhruni Bochum into the green. About a really nice single trail downhill with jumps and steep curves you come to the Kemnader lake. To cool down you can treat yourself to an ice cream, because in summer there is always an ice cream truck. Now you essentially follow the lake or the Ruhr, but the tour is always garnished with small trail-offs, so it is guaranteed not boring.The area of ​​"Ruhrcamping" offers itself for a very special break. Here you can camp in trailer. Everything is taken care of. You just need to park your bike, let your feet dangle in the cool river water and enjoy the peace and nature that you might not have expected in the middle of the pot.The next morning, you continue your tour. Today, the other side of the Ruhr plowed. You take the beautiful trails above the Wodantal with you and stroll around Hattingen, before it goes in the footsteps of mining pioneers through the Muttental back to the Ruhr. Here, the Ruhr ferry provides for a fun change. Afterwards you drive along the Kemnader lake and past the Ruhruni back to the starting point of the tour, the Bochum main station.
