Yeah, I survived orbit # 6! My first tour with more than 3,000 meters of altitude. 🤩What I have learned:🦜 Early Bird (departure at 5 a.m. is not really my thing) is really worth it: empty streets, few hikers and pleasant temperatures.💦 Fortunately, fountains are not in short supply in the Allgäu. On the descent from the Iberger Kugel there is even a self-service refrigerator (after 139 kilometers) with a great selection of soft drinks.💩 Hike-a-bike in an ankle-deep mix of wet mud and cow dung is pretty cool too.🪐 It was probably naive to think that it would roll comfortably downhill for the last 20 kilometers and 400 meters downhill - even if it sounds like it in the orbit description.🍓My weakness for strawberries doesn't stop at an orbit either. The strawberries at a stand just before the end looked so tasty that I had to take them with me for my first meal at the finish.To the route:🏞 The route is a dream in terms of landscape. The last two ramps are extremely hard, but thanks to a small gear ratio, they are just about manageable.🚳 The only drawback: For my taste there were too many sections where cycling is not allowed. All of these paths were - no question about it - pretty ingenious. Since I was out very early, there were hardly any hikers or walkers there. All good. But I still wonder if it really has to be?
