Today I was the “lunchtime child” and was allowed to leave my job early. Thank you, boss!Almost 20 degrees and sunshine are unusual for the end of October. And so I used the weather and drove this lap, the course of which I had been planning in my head for some time.As the starting and finishing point, I chose the parking lot of the Buchholz ice cream parlor and restaurant in Falkenhagen (Mark), which is known and loved far beyond the municipal boundaries.If you follow the road from here in the direction of Regenmantel (the name rags), you will reach a rest area with a viewpoint after a few hundred meters. This offers a great view over the Galgensee, which is besieged by many gray geese during these weeks.Between Falkenhagen and Lietzen you now ride on one of the most beautiful cycle paths in the Märkisch-Oderland district. It runs parallel to the NSG Lietzener Mühlental and partly looks like a "green tunnel". There is also a great vantage point with a rest and refuge hut.In Lietzen I then looked around the large area of the Commandery. This is the last still recognizable knight seat of the former Knights Templar (later Order of St. John) in Brandenburg.It was built in 1232.So, enough asphalt. Now we went back to Falkenhagen via field and forest paths via Döbberin.Once there, I followed the main road that runs through the town. The area between Schwarzer See and Burgsee is a very beautiful spot. The well-known inn and restaurant “Schweizerhaus” can also be found here by the lake.At the end of the tour I visited the stone church, which was built in the first half of the 14th century.Today I got to know a very beautiful (autumn) landscape with many bodies of water, beautiful forests, easy climbs and descents.I can imagine doing more bike tours here.
The time was very well spent Exploring the area by bike is fun.

Yes, in any case. And you can do more kilometers per hour!The investment in mid-June has paid off for me, I am scratching the 500km mark. I would never have thought it possible that I would find so much “sheer driving pleasure” again. I still love this bike like on the first day.But the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting worse, so that soon more hikes will be made again.
Yes, I very much regret that I was hardly on my bike this year. Hiking is also fun and next spring we will explore what it takes by bike😅
