Wir bitten um euer Verständnis, dass aufgrund der aktuellen Umstände alle Termine und Planungen unter Vorbehalt stehen. 

Wir gehen davon aus, dass wir im Spätsommer für alle Teilnehmer und unsere Mitarbeiter sicherere und unbeschwertere Veranstaltungen durchführen können.
Daher haben wir die neuen RuhrChallenges auf Sonntag, den 29. August und die Ruhr2NorthSeaChallenge auf Samstag, den 4. September verschoben.

What is a hotel bus?

The paid hotel bus will take you on June 23 to the hotels in Esens, Neuharlingersiel, Dornum, Dornumersiel, Norden, Norddeich and Aurich from 6.30 pm to 0:15am. To minimise your waiting time in Bensersiel, we recommend using the R2NSC app! This will display the...

Can I do this?

Yes! Try cycling at an average of 18 km/h over 2 hours on a flat, paved road on a relatively windless day with fully pumped tyres (e.g. 5 bar) without expending too much effort. If you can manage it, all that’s missing is… a good saddle – your choice good food...

What does multi-track mean?

Multi-track means that on our tours racing bikes stick to the paved or at least hard surfaces, while ‘experiencing nature and culture’ is the focus for all the other bikes and the surfaces, therefore, can also include a firm forest floor. The service points, however,...

Where do I find the route?

To prevent anyone losing their way on the long route as much as possible, we will not be using printed maps (road signs could be poorly visible in the dark or due to weather conditions, overlooked or even missing; and a printed map is usually [as tested during the...

What is the pick-up bus?

The pickup bus starts as a free broom wagon at 1.30 pm on 23 June from in front of the MSV Arena in Duisburg and collects ‘stranded cyclists’ from the service points along the way. At around 4 pm it will arrive at the 200-km service point and depart from there at 4.45...

What is a service point?

All three RuhrChallenges feature so-called service points (SPs) at an average interval of around 45 km. An SP offers you various services, such as catering, toilets, hand baggage, etc. From km 150, a first aid station will be available, and from the second until the...

Breakdown assistance

At the R2NSC 2018, there will again be a mobile roadside assistance service that R2NSC participants can contact directly via a mobile phone number (to be announced before 23 June). The free (except of the replacement parts mobile breakdown service will be typically...

Is there a cancellation insurance?

To make sure you don’t lose your registration fee if you fall ill before a tour, we recommend taking out cancellation insurance. This can be booked via Hanse-Mercur, for example. You will find detailed information here.

Team riding, fun names and team names

All three tours are ideally suited for team participation – it’s much more fun with your friends and it’s easier to keep going – especially when there’s a headwind! On the My Tours page, you can put together teams with freely selectable team (fun) names, either...

What is a transfer bus?

The paid transfer bus brings you from the Strandportal in Bensersiel back to the MSV Arena in Duisburg on 23 June at 8 pm or 10 pm and on 24 June at 11 am and arrives at 11.30 pm or 1.30 am or 2.30 pm on 24 June. It is also possible to board the bus at the exits of...
