OuterRuhrChallenge (100 km)

100 kilometres, whatever the April weather!

orc-bildThe first preparation “round” tour – the OuterRuhrChallenge (ORC) – sets off on 28 April 2019 at 8 am. The 100-kilometre ORC corresponds to the first 50 kilometres of the Ruhr2NorthSeaChallenge (there and back), is fully paved and suitable for any kind of bike. Racing bikes will take a slightly different route to avoid frequent bends and bumpy road sections as far as possible; for all other cyclists, experiencing nature and culture will be a major focal point. To minimise risks, the route will be exclusively on bike paths and small roads and wearing helmets is mandatory. There are 3 service points along the route providing food, drinks, WCs and other services. The breakfast buffet will be served at the Restaurant Schloss Raesfeld; we will be eating lunch alongside the Regattabahn.


    • 3 service points (0, 50, 100 km)
    • Plenty of food and drinks (breakfast buffet, energy bars, snacks, drinks [also isotonic], lunch with free drink at the destination)
    • Registration documents by postal mail

    • R2NSC app (for navigation and more)
