Nach meiner großen Radtour im letzten Jahr hatte ich ja erwähnt das ich solch eine Tour zwar wieder aber anders gestalten will. Stressfreier, vor allem wenn Annette mit dabei ist. Dies ließ sich bei dieser Tour gut umsetzen und wir, Annette ja sowieso, konnten mehr gaffen.
Der Mosel sind wir bis Bousse in Frankreich gefolgt und haben es dann gut sein lassen da Wein und Burgen nicht mehr zu bekommen waren. Wieder zurück in Mainz hatten wir noch etwas Zeit und sind dem Main bis Aschaffenburg gefolgt.
Reine Flusskilometer: 836 Kilometer
- Rhein 187 Kilometer runter und rauf
- Mosel 562 Kilometer rauf und runter
- Main 87 Kilometer rauf

    After we were last together in 2019 and I was alone on the Rhine last year, this year's spring bike tour begins at Mainz Central Station.

    In the rain!

    Good ohms/bad ohms?

    A week ago there was a shock when I had to check the bikes and found that the bottom bracket on the new bike

    Yesterday we saw the indication that the B42 is closed in the further course. We'll get through as pedestrians or cyclists! We made it up to the full road closure in Assmannshausen and since we didn't want to take the 500-metre detour via Presberg to Lorch, we went back to R

    Along the Moselle by bike.


    Moselle kilometers 00 - 52


    When we finally finished staring at the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz, the sun was already rising quite late. But what the heck, if the way is longer than the time available

    A short city tour without Reichsburg with heat and ice at twenty-five degrees Celsius.

    We had already visited the Reichsburg in detail in 2011 and therefore skipped it this time.

    Today it is quickly told.

    Plenty of vineyards and sun, a little fewer castles or ruins than before and despite a lot of gawping we've come a long way.

    The route is also suitable for racing bikes, but it should be a gravel bike from Wehlen because of the deeper potholes on the

    It rained quite a bit this morning. At breakfast the sun came out again and then over the course of the day we fried the leftovers that she didn't manage to do yesterday.

    Today we looked for the path on the right side of the Moselle and of course got lost. The Moselle loop near

    Today we hung around in Luxembourg all day. So on the Luxembourg side of the Moselle because the Moselle itself is a 36.5 kilometer long border river but is on the German side. Or not? More on that later.

    Not far after Igel, Luxembourg's Wasserbillig begins after crossing the

    Every child in the region knows that Luxembourg and Germany border on the Moselle. Western side of the river Luxembourg, eastern Germany, the border in the middle. This is what it looks like on almost every map. Absolutely normal. But it's wrong! Correct is: Two boundary lines, one on each bank. The

    No, we didn't get any French for breakfast today and although it was 28°C, our highest daily temperature so far, we didn't get sunstroke either. At least

    Annette had specified 80 kilometers, but did not mention whether she meant river or bicycle kilometers.

    Last Saturday it rained for the last time and with maximum temperatures between 25 - 30°C the sun has beaten us mercilessly over the last few

    Despite the heavy rain yesterday evening, the Moselle valley was an incubator again today. Today was Sunday and we took it easy. Because of the sheer relaxation while driving, my thoughts wandered a bit and somehow I ended up with the energy transition. As my eyes fell on one

    No more strength to write much! 🤥

    At thirty-two degrees Celsius we broke into the air-conditioned hotel in Bingen. I don't need to mention that we've burned more than tan in the meantime. Although it hadn't rained, the air could be

    We started quite early, which may have been due to the fact that the freight trains ran through the room regularly all night!

    Alternatively, there would have been heat death with the window closed. 😜

    It was pleasantly fresh to start so early.

    Since it was only noon, we first had a snack at Mainkilometer zero and then we romped up the Main with a tailwind (upstream). This time we wanted to try the left side and see how far you can get since we've ridden the right side several

    Our thirteen-day bike tour ended today because we refuse to cooperate on Friday the 13th.

    Are already two days more than planned.


    Since we're done with the tour, I've put everything back into a collection:
