    Exploring the region around the Gibloux. The Gibloux is an upstream mountain range in front of the Freiburg Alps - and at 1205 m above sea level, it is the highest point on the Freiburg Central Plateau. The 118m high radio and television tower, visible from afar at the highest point, is striking - with a visitor platform at 37m. From there you have a 360 degree view.That's exactly where I wanted to go 😜 - the view of the webcam and rain radar - left me no choice but to take the rain cover with me completely.I chose Vuisternens-en-Ogoz as the starting point - parked in front of the village church and the journey began. Passing an older farmhouse, I then chose the route so - that I could use the MTB - that is, narrow, partly unpaved pathsRight from the start - steep approaches. The ground was already very soft from the rain - but I was able to ride the steep sections without any further problems. At 2.5 km I took the Botanical Way Trail and followed it.You took great care here - put nameplates on bushes and trees - and so I was able to learn a little Latin in addition to the meters in altitude. But the gaze always went back to the driveway - because it was tough. In addition to the soft ground, the tree roots now piled up, which made the driveway more interesting😋. After a short stretch of well-paved path - after km 3 - I turned onto a gravel road. Rock n‘Roll - yeeaahh😀. Today driving is much more comfortable than the soft ground.Arrived at the top of the gravel road - a rest area with barbecue facilities and a small wooden tower (replica of the large television tower) for the children awaited me. We took a short break and enjoyed the view of Lake Gruyère.I continued on the Kretenweg (which is also used by hikers) - and was able to continue to the TV tower via root paths and mogul slopes (on the first one I had to get down). Up here I saw a hiker for the first time.Suddenly the forest cleared and the tower stood there - wonderful. The last part of the journey was a breeze. I didn't have to worry about the COVID distance regulations today - I was all alone. Get on the platform.The view to the NW to Lake Neuchâtel was still recognizable. But a rain front had already come up from the SW and the wind - swirling the clouds towards the tower - visibility was getting worse from second to second. I sat down and watched the natural spectacle. Back down to the bike - there I met this Roman snail - and yes, from here on I put on the rain cover. Not a second too early🚿🚿🚿.This was followed by the descent from the Krete - 🔨🔨- also on this side a gravel road connected with single trails of class S1 at the beginning and then S2. Let's go - without a clear goal, I let myself be guided down the single trails. So I got to the camping site in Sorens. Because I liked it so much - I wanted to add a few more trails.Gem Koomot there was a path that then emerged as a Ghost👻. Look around and in front of the SCULPTURES TROÇONNEUSE (chainsaw sculptures) board, do a U-turn on the sculptures. 🤩🤩🤩 Wonderful to follow these sculptures in the forest.static.mycity.travel/manage/uploads/7/36/28330/a7e40d5e2a6aff6eceecd4148b4913baaebcdfd3.pdfThen there was a beautiful descent through the forest to km 11.5 and then over a beautiful meadow trail to the Le Gérigno stream - which I wanted to continue to follow. In the meantime the precipitation increased - so after km 14 I was happy to take the single trail into the forest.This started as a beautiful S0 and ended as an S2 (S3) trail down to Le Gérigno which was now a big stream. So I followed the stream down - sometimes it was not possible to cross with other participants. After km 17 I left Le Gérigno and drove up to Sorens. With the intention of driving parallel to the Gibloux ridge to be able to enjoy the view - unfortunately🌁 no chance.So I drove back to the vehicle in constant rain and was happy to have taken spare laundry with me😜.Conclusion: I'll definitely do the tour again in an adapted version 🤩👍👌 the rain cover held tight - and the bike was clean from the rain again at the end - but in 🌞weather the Gibloux is a hotspot.
