      Today was the day and my big bike tour in favor of the Lichtblicke e.V. campaign started.Because of the name, it was of course also to start in Mettmann. After the start, it was first in the footsteps of the Tour de France 2017 (Photo 1) through the Schwarzbach valley to Ratingen.From there, some poppy fields (picture 2) via D-Kalkum to D-Kaiserswerth, where we finally came to the Rhine after crossing the old town (picture 3 + picture 4). Unfortunately we couldn't treat ourselves to a fox there because it was too early.Fortunately, we were able to cross the bridge (Photo 5) today because I only had small luggage with me.A short time later you are already in Duisburg (Fig. 6) and come back to the Rhine. The canoe deposited there (Fig. 7) is probably a leftover from the last flood.From Duisburg Hochfeld we changed the Rhine side over the "Bridge of Solidarity" (picture 8 + 9) and came to DU-Rheinhausen (picture 10).This bridge (name since January 20, 1988 - previously Admiral-Graf-Spee-Bridge) and the district of Rheinhausen are inextricably linked to the steelworker protests 1987/1988. Rheinhausen became a symbol of resistance to the steel crisis.Shortly after Rheinhausen you come to Krefeld and Uerdingen, both places are long-established locations of the chemical industry (picture 11 + picture 12). The CHEMPARK with its other locations in Dormagen and Leverkusen is one of the largest European chemical parks.The historic building of the distillery (Fig. 13) has been a listed building since April 2010.You can reach the Krefeld harbor via the swing bridge (Fig. 14).

      There was a lot of traffic on the Nordbahntrasse for this time (4:45 a.m.) ... the good weather attracts even more cyclists / runners to the streets!

      That was the last longer test with partial baggage before my bike tour ... 10 kg extra on the rear wheel can be a nuisance !!!

      Fast lap in front of the home office ... the difference of one week is clearly noticeable at sunrise!

      Somehow nothing worked today ... and then it got very crowded, despite the early start time!

      I have now found why Komoot always switches off or stops. Komoot chokes due to the double use of VPN in Mobile Norton and in Secure VPN.Today 3.35 km and 20 minutes are missing!

      Since I forgot to start Komoot, 8.7 km / 22:45 minutes are missing ...It was supposed to be a few kilometers more, but the rain didn't surprise me and then I was dressed incorrectly or didn't have the right clothes with me! ... so back home very quickly!
