A small round trip on a sunny sunday, just an idea too warm and sultry, but looking forward to a very nice destination. First of all there was the non-obligatory breakdown, shit just happens sometimes.
Kettwig is located on the northern edge of the Bergisches Land area, and this mountainous region definitely means altitude. From Dusseldorf we drove through the wonderful forest area between Lintorf and Rahm, over Selbeck and Breitscheidt down into the Ruhr valley. The cycle path along the Ruhr is now tarred and in a top condition.
In Kettwig we walked through the town, past a community festival, and back to the Ruhr into Hettchen Brückencafe. Very nice terrace with a view of a duck parade. And delicious ice cream 🙂
Back through the Angerbachtal, and across Ratingen to drive along the Grafenberger Wald back to Dusseldorf.
Overall certainly no big but – considerning the temperatures – exhausting route. And the speed! We’re not on the run! And the heights! Bergisches Land just, foothills back and forth.
But it was nice :-)!
