Bike Touring Highlight
Triking Phil went for a bike ride.

After bad weather with rain was announced for the next few days, we went into the forest in the morning - recharge our batteries.There is nothing better than sniffing the cool forest air. 🌳🌲🤩
Yes, I was on the way between Glonn and Steinsee very early this morning. The fresh morning air with all the smells is incomparable before the sun rises higher ... 🌲🌳🍄The forest houses Diana and Hubertus in the Ebersberger Forst are also in my program for this year.
... Hello Phil,nice trip; I enjoy my "permanent" forced break, with a lot of travel reports, dreams of vacation and my 1.5-year stay in Crete. ...
Triking Hardy:The forest is always a real highlight for cyclists. I really enjoy doing one or the other lap. Also works wonderfully with the Scorpion. 😊TadpolER:You're right, just make the best of the situation. How about the Rohloff? Can you finally use the good piece properly?
... unfortunately no, but I got a new chain idler for the Scorpion (it's the one from the Kettwiesel, but the rear derailleur compensates for the size difference; it is already installed). Called the racing handbike dealer today and complained about my suffering. Result: He's sending me shift cables and 13-tooth drive sprockets next week. Statement from Lois: "I have to help a good former customer and nobody drives Rohloff apart from you! The hub may be ideal for you as a travel biker, but for my" racing handbiker "it is simply too heavy!"
Well then I hope that you can finally tick off the topic of shift cables. 😊👍🏻

... you know what, the shift cables are now indifferent to me. Only the 13-tooth drive pinion is really important. Then I can also switch gears while driving with an 8-ring spanner and a stick. Experience from handbike trips! This is how I moved for weeks beyond the Arctic Circle.
