In 320m on the right - it's very easy.Great trails, with a 1/2 m travel that should be easy to ride.

Udo, I didn't even know there were bogs in the Solling.

@Telemaxx Yes, a beautiful moor landscape and mud and moor trails. (;-))
Nice pictures, but sorry that is not what you're doing mountain biking. You roll around in nature with battery support. When I see all the stuff you guys have on the handlebars, terrible. My tip: take the bike path to the other e-bikers.In the forest you are completely exotic, and you definitely have nothing here, but nothing at all. Just driving in the forest is worse than you😂

Sigi is probably in a bad mood today and wants to get rid of this - right? 1. there is the original Flyon display in the middle and to the right of it my mobile phone with which I drive the planned route, because I don't always push the same trail up and then drive it down again in 5 minutes. 2. I rode my bike, recumbent bike and MTB for 65 years and should I stop now just because Sigi is in a bad mood? 3. Sigi should buy an e-bike so that he can have a say, because it's the worst to talk about something if you've never done it before!
Hello Udo,I just wanted to lure you out of your reserves a little. I'm not in a bad mood. I've been cycling myself for 50 years. And the Solling and the Vogler are my home territory, so to speak. Last year I tested several Nikolai e-bikes around Hellental on the trails and in the fun park in Merxhausen.So I can say that an e-bike doesn't even come close to a mtb. An e-bike is far too heavy and unwieldy on blocked, stony trails. On steep ramps where stamina, traction and possibly willpower are important, an e-bike is almost like a small bump in the ground. The pulse hardly rises when you are almost at the limit with the Mtb. Downhill, on the other hand, it is torture with the e-bike. Where the fun on the mtb in terms of speed and agility begins, it doesn't even begin with the e-bikes. On the mtb, in addition to good fitness, balance and traction, it is also important to interpret the terrain accordingly. Using small protrusions, roots, and berms to pick up speed, simply to move around with the bike in a sporty, elegant way. An e-bike simply lacks speed and handling on the trail. So it has nothing to do with mountain biking. Therefore, from my point of view as an e-biker, you shouldn't necessarily roll around on the most beautiful trails. In your pictures I saw e.g. the Wall Trail in Neuhaus, one of the most popular trails for Mtb‘er. Or the steep ascent to Ebersnacken coming from Bodoturm. What are you doing? The attraction there is to drive up on your own. Incidentally, it is one of the most physically difficult tours for trained mountain bikers Burgberg, Ebersnacken, Bodoturm, Könnigszinne down the trail to Rühle. Drive on the normal forest paths, there are also many beautiful paths, including to the boar's neck! You should definitely not stop cycling. And of course the forest is also for e-bikers! It's just annoying when e-bikers stand in trails that they can't ride at all. In the meantime, far away from official roads, you can meet groups of e-bikers who roll downhill on loose gravel more slowly than we go up!One wonders why they do this to themselves. In any case, it has nothing to do with mountain biking, I'm sure of that. So stay on the bike and please do not tackle every trail if you can just because the navigation system found it by chance.Ps: By the way, there is a set of maps in the city office in Holzminden for 17 mountain bike trails in the region, in which the nature of the path, the degree of difficulty, viewpoints, etc. are given.😁

If someone still wants to look at moving pictures, here is the link.

great video Udo. At that time we trained for our Transalp in Solling. We did more in Solling than in the Alps ...
