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 penultimate SP there will also be an e-bike charging station. The opening hours of the SPs are based on an average minimum speed of 17 km/h and a maximum speed of 40 km/h (plus 2 hrs break). The following table shows the SPs together with the opening hours for the Ruhr2NorthSeaChallenge 2018.
