After waiting all day yesterday for a 75km bike sore muscle that didn't come, I decided today to do something sensible 🤪 and go hiking. What does Deister crossing sound like? Yes really, it
just had to be a few vertical meters today. The small mountain ridge is in the west of Hanover and we crossed it from the north (Bad Nenndorf) to the south (Springe) 🧭. In comparison to the Upper Harz and especially in this time of year, the beech forests are fantastic. Lied, they are so green that it almost hurts your eyes.In the middle, the so-called ridge path was a bit wide, but there were also very fine forest paths. And if you can take a break in the sun and end up standing in a sea of blooming wild garlic, you can't have done so much wrong when planning, right? Maybe my legs were still a little bit heavy from cycling 😉

I used my Lottefrei day today and exchanged hiking shoes for bikes. It's been years since I did a real bike tour,, except for small rounds with Lotte. But I really wanted to expand my radius. So I dusted off my mountain bike, oiled the chain and inflated air. It should be a slim 75 kilometers around Celle. I had calculated with 5 hours, but I with my well-founded half knowledge ...The first 45 kilometers were great, but probably I should have switched to a bike instead of a mountain bike? 🤔 Well, it doesn't matter. I boarded the small, hunched paths and regularly landed on nasty sandy paths. My most valuable thing groaned like that from kilometer 50. It's just stupid that I lost air in the last few kilometers - the bike 🙈. And I didn't even notice it at the beginning, I thought I was just broken 😅 So it said: drive 2.5 kilometers, pump, drive 2.5 kilometers, .... Professional just 💪. So I probably won't become a professional bike blogger anymore. But at least I managed the route in a fantastic natural setting in 4.5 hours. 😃 I think I better stay hiking 🥾

And again I found such a nice spot in my home. Nature cannot be wilder than the Oldhorster Moor. While peat was previously obtained here as a heating material and the bog was artificially drained, the areas are now being renatured.The path leads along small paths along the many small and large water points in which peat mosses are already really lush green. The path leads us to the Kohlshorner gravel ponds, perfect for a long rest on the bank. On the way back we come through the Kalmia field (laurel rose), but it only blooms there in June / July. Shortly afterwards we have to cut our way fairly through the forest because the path is full of branches. But I really like a bit of adventure feeling.An extremely beautiful and varied hike, only the proximity to the A37 is a drop of bitterness.

We did a short but super varied round today. The Brehlinger Berge are really - according to northern German understanding - mountains, so at least it goes up and down every now and then. Today we mainly hiked on small forest paths winding through the forest and open space.In addition, it goes past gravel ponds, on the first you can even swim in summer. We saw at least cormorants today. The section on the geopath is especially interesting for children. For them there is also a beautiful forest playground right at the start of the tour. At least I practiced balancing there. A tour that I would do again in a heartbeat.

Today I almost fell on the covers. So it was the best idea to just go out today. As always, being outside really helped me. We shot almost 17 kilometers in our homeland and managed to delight in the little beauties of nature.If you want to find something positive in the current times, it is definitely for me that I now have time to explore my home a little more closely. What beautiful spots there are - even without mountains.Our quarry ponds, the small streams and the extensive forests are really wonderful. It is getting a little greener and juicier in nature every day. Even if this tour leads across the forest at one point, it was a lot of fun.

Since we are currently not allowed to travel, we took the opportunity to explore our home country a bit. The round took us along the Wulbeck, a small brook in the Hanover region. Forest, meadow and field - everything was there. In summer, horses and cows are in the pastures, and even a flock of heather is at home here. Now, just in time for the beginning of spring, a lot of butterflies are on the move, flowers are blooming everywhere and hawks and buzzards are flying over the freshly plowed fields. Insanity, what is currently going on outside. Somehow everything seems fine in nature. And that's exactly why it's good to spend a lot of time there.
