Ruhr Valley Cycle Path Middle Section
On my preferred section, the Ruhr winds through wide floodplains in countless loops. It "swallows" its wild sisters Lenne and Volme south of the Hohensyburg near Hagen, and then follows a furious ride past castles, collieries and factories. There I am completely in my element. We even have to cross once. Hopefully the ferryman at Hardenstein Castle will still have a place free for us!
