Actually we wanted to drive this big lap on 22.214.171.124, the mousetrap on the descent on the Haniel dump with the subsequent tedious search for the right route cost too much time at that time. Today we stayed below the heap (and saw the mousetrap from the other side). Driving the route again was great fun - especially the route over the Rotbachweg and also the sections in the Baerler Wald. When descending, you should look for a better route in front of and behind the Rhine crossing. Our car parking lot was perfect (about 10 regular parking lots).

Now after 4 weeks of cycling in and around Krefeld, the radius had to be expanded somewhat. From the Wedau Stadium, the tour leads towards Oberhausen, along the Rhine-Herne Canal to the Hexbach Valley. A wonderful bike route towards RS1. The new bicycle bridge over the Ruhr is passed. However, the new expansion line ends after about 1000 in a cul-de-sac. Follow the well-known paths back to the regatta course and from there on the left bank of the Rhine back to Krefeld

Krefeld loop on Easter Sunday.
Starting in the south of Krefeld, via Fichtenhain and Hückelsmay to the Forstwalder train station. We continue in the west of Krefeld via St. Tönis and Hüls to the silt station on Hülser Berg. We follow the Grafschafter bike and hiking trails until just before chapels. There you go south, past Traar. Ri Krefeld is again between the A57 and the golf course. From Elfrath we follow the great bike path along the A57 to finally marvel at the construction site of the 'Krefeld Promenade', which will (hopefully) soon become the city's cycling highlight.

A great tour that shows once again which wonderful bike paths exist here in the region. The emotional highlight was the St. Roch chapel in Lüttenglehn - a chapel that was built 250 years ago on the occasion of the plague in this region.
A silent prayer is the order of the day in Corona times.
