For the past 25 years, this popular event known beyond the borders of the Lower Rhine has been held. In the meantime, around 70 cities and regions on the Rhine and Maas, including Wesel, participate in the Lower Rhine Cycling Day. The cycling day is supported by the ADFC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club e.V.)
Round courses from 19 to 70 kilometres
With over 60 well-marked circuits and a total length of around 3,000 km, cycling day has a lot to offer: The participants can discover the scenic and cultural beauties of the Lower Rhine and the Dutch border landscape. Hardly any other region offers such a variety of important moated castles, windmills, historic city centres, industrial monuments, idyllic farms, expansive forest areas and beautiful meadow and moor landscapes. Dutch specialities await in one of the countless cafes, beer gardens or garden restaurants located on the edge of the path.
The routes range from short routes with about 19 km to a day route of nearly 70 km. There is normally a colourful program with raffles, food and information booths at the start and end sites. All starting spots from the "Lower Rhine Cycling Day" are connected with at least two more destinations. Participation is free of charge
Brochures with route maps and information about the start and end spots are available in the city information centre in Wesel one month before the event.
