My bike, my trail, my ... boat! On this tour you go to sea. Okay, in fact, it's "just" the Ruhr, yet the green-water house pedal boat we found for this extraordinary overnight adventure is a nocturnal home that you will not forget in no time. Apropos: We do not want to forget the many beautiful trails that you will ride on this tour, as well as all kinds of great highlights, from the biker snack bar to the wonderful view from the shore and from various bridges to the Ruhr and the Baldeneysee.You start in the middle of Essen at the main station, which you can reach by train from all directions. A few minutes through the city and you are already on a quiet railway track bike path, which takes you away from the city hustle and bustle without any ado on the first trail. The has it in itself: Built jumps and fast ripples curves ensure the best bike fun.After this furious prelude, you can then relax on the Ruhrtalradweg a little and enjoy the beautiful view of the river, before it goes up and down a couple of times. Before you reach your "overnight camp", a drive through the Mülheim harbor area provides for some urban variety. And then the next act of this adventure begins: On the houseboat you go to sea! Whether you pedal yourself or use the small outboard motor is up to you. And when you find the perfect place, you just drop the anchor and let the Ruhr lull you to sleep.The next day breakfast on the Ruhr is a really nice experience. Schipper a bit over the river and if you feel like having solid ground under your feet again, you start in the harbor and change to the bike.Just under 55 kilometers are waiting for you on the way back. You will ride through some of the most beautiful biking areas around Essen. At "Jackie's Biketreff" you can take a leisurely break and then freshly strengthened take the varied trails of Essen-Kettwig under the tunnels. Again and again you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Ruhr valley and the Baldeneysee, which you cross again on the way back, before the beautiful railway line brings you back to the train station.
