The tour from Hildesheim to Hanover is particularly enjoyable in spring. The tour largely avoids the use of roads with car traffic and leads along numerous waters.There are also no significant gradients. Komoot just messed up here. According to the map data, it should be 240 meters in altitude, but not 720. 🤣The tour is suitable for all types of bikes. Due to the length and the high proportion of gravel and nature trails, a certain level of fitness or an e-bike is required. My wife hardly used half of her approx. 500 Wh battery in Eco. My condition is now sufficient again, so I switched off the support.In summer you should take your bathing suit with you to take a cool dip in one of the Ricklinger ponds. The seven-meter pond has unfortunately been tipped over and swimming is officially prohibited.The meadow roof house still delivered food to go today, from May 11th you should be able to sit down again. Some guests brought their own chairs and we sat on a blanket.
Maybe we met there today? We almost drove the tour the other way around.
It is quite possible. But it was also something like Volksradeltag, there was a lot of activity at times. 🤔

Right. But it was still okay. I got lost so often ...
Hello Stefan, I am enthusiastic about your tours in the Hildesheim area. For me, these are associated with many memories, since I grew up in Hildesheim and have lived in Pattensen since 1975. Do you ride the tours with the e-bike? Thanks for maps and reports. Keep it up! Helmut
A very good route choice, I've driven several times to Gifteer Seen, it's worth it in every season, especially with bathtubs,
Thanks @ Helmut and Hendrik@Helmut: Yes, I ride the Ebike. But accompanied and if there is no wind or steep climbs, there is no electricity. The hub motor in the rear wheel is trimmed for mountain ability, thanks to idling, it rests completely when it is not activated. The bike then behaves like any trekking bike, except for the weight.
