Steffen in MHD went for a bike ride.

The idea came to me when I saw the remains of the old narrow-gauge railway line in Taubenheim last week ...And why not connect two routes together?The start was in Dürrhennersdorf, via Schönbach-Beiersdorf-Oppach to Taubenheim, as close as possible to the old route that was dismantled after the war. You can see the remains of bridges and railway embankments, and you can roughly determine where the route once ran. When it is wet, be careful with some wooden bridges, which first feel soapy and then hard ... 😲Part 2 was the route from Halbendorf via Cunewalde to Löbau. This route has been developed into a great bike path. Even if it rises a little at first - it drives well, and in the drizzling weather I only saw 3 cyclists on this route, 5 on the entire tour ...Except for cold feet and a fall on a bridge, it was a cool lap👍
Nice lap, if you disregard the fall. I've also tested it from Löbau to Halbendorf, and it's really great to drive.But then I am back a short stretch of the Spreeradweg and then over the villages along the B96.I'll make a note of the rail route variant. Thanks for the tip.
Yes, try it ... is definitely even better on sunny days ...A hint ... from Taubenheim to the Erntekranzbaude you can get there easily on bike paths. However, I was lucky with the car traffic down the Wurbiser Berg (main road to Halbendorf) ...
I don't know the old narrow-gauge railway line either, so I have to test it out. 👍
I cycled past a few places last year without knowing it. Despite the long time, a lot of details are still visible ... + a few hints such as e.g. the Bahnhofstr. in Schönbach ...

Is the route suitable for racing bikes?

The old sections of the route between Dürrh-Oppach were partly asphalt or stuck sand roads ... that's okay ... at km 8 I am a bit through the forest (you should be on the right) ... all the rest was asphalt ...
