Tour de France, Giro d'Italia und Tour de Suisse
In Brest mit einer Panne gestartet, dank grosszügiger Hilfe unter Fahrradfahrern konnte doch noch losgefahren werden. Auf dem ersten Teil dem Atlantik entlang in Richtung Spanien gefahren. Wunderschöne Streckenabschnitte mit grosser Abwechslung. In Biarritz Richtung Mittelmeer abgebogen und Richtung Toulouse gefahren. vor Toulouse an den Canal du Midi gefahren und bis ans Mittelmeer gefolgt. Ein kurzes Stück der Mittelmeerküste entlang gefahren um anschliessend wieder dem Hinterland zu folgen. Ich folgte dem Euroveloweg und durchpflügte wunderbare Landschaften. Nach der Grenze zu Italien in Ventimiglia links abgebogen und über den Col de Tende gefahren. Ein Highlight meiner Tour. Der letzte Abschnitt über die Naturstrasse war überwältigend.
Durch das Piemont und die Lombardei an den Lago Maggiore gefahren, um das zweite Highlight zu geniessen. Der Gotthardpass mit seiner Tremola war schon lange ein Ziel, welches ich nun bewältigen durfte. Ein richtiger Genuss oben angelangt zu sein. Danach mit viel Freude die letzten Tage der Tour genossen und in der Heimat angekommen.

    Nice tour at times on the main road, for lack of alternatives. A few meters in altitude have been added. Beautiful area and exciting views. The route chosen spontaneously, the map viewed and a direction chosen. In the end towards the destination the wind was on its way for me. That's right. 🚴‍♀️

    I finally found my way on the Atlantic. After crossing at St. Nazaire, I was introduced to the Velodysse route. Since then, the route has mainly led along the Atlantic. Beautiful and relaxing. Like on vacation 😉

    Started this morning in Les Sables d'Olonne sur mer. It all went along the Eurovelo 1 / Velodyssée signage, sometimes with short detours. In between I missed a signpost and had to turn around. Sometimes they are small and a second one follows immediately to pass a small path between the houses at a corner

    Today was a tough start. The temperature fluctuates a lot.

    The dunes were impressive, but not so useful to capture with the mobile phone. Thanks to Velomobil Hofer, gradients of up to 16% are no longer a problem. The new pinions are excellent.

    There were often long lines of cars along the beach and every

    Started this morning under an overcast sky, it was cool. After about an hour it started to rain. A little later Heaven meant it better for me again. Afterwards everything whale passages on beautiful paths are announced. It was wavy, but never too strong.

    The blackberries on the way tasted very sweet and

    Today started fresh and the sky was overcast. The last part of the Velodyssée trail could be used. The way to Bayonne was well signposted and wonderful to drive. Some surfers could be found on the various beaches and parking spaces were in great demand in many places. Some of the drivers were overwhelmed

    Started this morning on a beautiful campsite in Salies de Baern. The view was superb. The campsite attendant gave me a hot day, it should be 36 degrees.

    The beginning was great, a great descent, but then it got more strenuous. Since I don't like looking down from the valley to the hills, I followed path

    Started at the D’Arouch campsite in Lourdes and drove through Lourdes. The great church had scaffolded its tower. I missed or avoided the big tourist streams, I don't know.

    Outside it went through a valley towards Toulouse. Fortunately, the Col du Bidulet had opened and I didn't have to turn around. It

    Started in the morning with cloudy weather in Ville Franche de Lauragais. Immediately looked for and found the way on the Canal du Midi. The first part was wonderful to drive. Stopping briefly in Obelisque de Riquet and looking for the way, an older lady has already approached me and explained the way

    This morning before the start the hose was replaced once, it didn’t survive yesterday without damage. Successful start after the ibligaten breakfast drink. Found a quiet street up to the Canal du Midi.

    When we got to the canal, it got a bit steep in between. To enjoy the view or take a look at the Canal

    This morning with nice weather and excellent tempeatures could be great. Unfortunately I noticed another breakdown from yesterday, the saddle rods did not survive the last two days without damage. It cracked once yesterday and I didn't know where, unfortunately a defect. I can drive and have to see that
