Mountain Biking Highlight
Alu Minautix went mountain biking.
December 19, 2020
In spring I found the path through the nettles and blackberry bushes for the first time (km 14). But somehow there was always an old fence under the undergrowth and further back a fallen tree blocked the way. There you had to get off and lift your bike over it. Now in winter, the obstacles are nice and free and so I was able to clear the path properly. The path can be seen very well on the photo.The Klingelingelingelel ..... comes from a small bell, more precisely a flat clamp, burnished in size 3, which I ordered from an agricultural specialist. Attached to the handlebar with some Velcro tape, you have a nice Christmas feeling while driving. The bell is also very good for clearing the way. Most people smile in a friendly way when it is going on and willingly make a little space to drive by. Fortunately, it's not so loud that it's annoying.
I'm looking forward to the tinkling when we ride together. Somehow I can't imagine it going on forever, but I like to be convinced. 😁
I'll leave them on the bike, I promise. Then you always know that you haven't lost me yet and you don't have to turn around to me all the time. Haha
"Haha" ... so you've already put it well. 🤣😂👍
In addition, I would have a frog-mouth clamp size 3 (infernally loud) and a roller clamp (sounds like a puppet).
This is guaranteed to work. Follow the lead cow. 🐮🔔
Do you have a whole Bell Zoo at home?
@Uwe: If there are three of us, everyone gets a 🔔 on the bike. 🤣Nobody gets lost there.
Yes Uwe, I once ordered a couple of jingles to try out the sound. It's interesting how they are properly named. (And how different they sound!) By the way, I copied the thing with the bell from Andreas Albrecht. He has a really nice ... bell with a braided band on the handlebar. I really liked that and had to do it.
Haha. Back to nature, analog communication. Without electricity and even works in the dead zone.
André, if you "zoom in" on the Stinging Nettle Passage on your tour, it looks as if you have lost your orientation for a short time because of the bells ringing 😳
I have a little bit of hope that all the animals in the forest will notice me a little earlier and not jump out of the bushes in a frightened way if I just shoot past. Fortunately, I haven't had full contact so far, but not much has been missing a few times.
