Rainer 1957 and Roswitha 1956 went for a bike ride.
July 4, 2020
Day 6 conclusion: Today was our last stage from Essentho to Meschede. This time our route planning was such that we did not always follow the main bike path, but also drove different paths through forest and gravel surfaces. The slopes were tough today. Partially up to 14% gradient, which we honestly wouldn't have been able to do without our e-bikes. From Brilon it went steeply uphill again. The last 13 km to Meschede were then the reward of only going downhill. When we arrived in Meschede, we made the short detour to Lake Hennesee. In total we did 1089 meters of altitude today and we are proud to have done it. Even today there were larger sections with a head wind of up to 19 km / h.We had a wonderful 6 day bike tour behind us, 5 rivers, saw the most diverse landscapes, whereby we liked the Fulda section the best.
I am glad that you had such nice days. 14% gradient and this height increase is already tremendous despite e-bikes. I imagine myself literally lost in these values ... 😂I always think of it when it goes downhill. At some point you usually have to go up again. 😃
Congratulations on the great tour 👌✌️💯🍻
Thank you. Have been great 6 days
