The dress rehearsal: With almost complete luggage over the Hessian long-distance cycle route R4 to the Vogelsberg.
Everything is new and unfamiliar: the weight on the bike, the knowledge that some inclines can only be mastered by pushing and that these days you stand out like a sore thumb with luggage on your bike.
Today we went back home via the Vulkanradweg and Hohe Straße. May is still unusually cold, so I was happy to have a warm jacket while I drove downhill towards Gedern at a rapid pace.
Conclusion: The packing list has to be revised again with regard to weight. And it would be nice if komoot recorded until the end and didn't just switch it off 18km before the end.
