      Because of the looming long weekend there was a lot of essential car traffic. That's why I included some small paths and gravel roads at the beginning. I also drove a little way on a sandy forest path, because unfortunately an automobile driver had made it past me (not that I would have hindered him), whose 225 tires on the slopes raised so much dust, even when driving slowly, that it was with me spontaneous eyelid failure occurred ...
      Back on the 96A we passed some of the considerable traffic jams. Thanks to the strong (back) wind, the air was still enjoyable.

      Finally it was time to go home. From Engelskirchen, Wuppertal is about as far away as Cologne, and you save about half an hour by train. Instead of the proven route on the Balkan route, I decided on a new variant via the Dhünntalsperre. The route proved to be peppered with particularly steep inclines and descents, but was top-notch in terms of landscape and traffic. I particularly recommend the Dhünntalsperre here, because in contrast to the other dams that I have already visited on previous tours, it offers resting options with a view of the water. There are also a few benches on the dam itself. 5km before Lennep I came back to the former railway line, after a little variation I finally went back through the Marscheider Bach valley to the Wupper. The time was tight, especially since you can't really hurry up slopes above 10%, but I was able to get on the train in Oberbarmen without waiting.

      Thanks to the iCycle records, I had a desire to explore the area around Bad Neuenahr a while ago. Now the opportunity had arisen and so I started from Bonn-Mehlem and initially a bit along the Rhine to the mouth of the Ahr. There I switched to the Ahrradweg, which I can highly recommend. I left out the vineyards for now. But I will definitely explore it on another tour (-> red wine hiking trail). For this I treated myself to the Krausberg, which was quite an effort but rewarded with a wonderful view. At Kreuzberg I went out of the Ahr valley and climbed the heights of the eastern Eifel, which also offered great routes and panoramas. Then cozy and mostly downhill over country and to the Kottenforst back to the main station Bonn. An exhausting but completely worthwhile tour.

      A successful tour from Cologne Hbf to Engelskirchen in the Aggertal.
      Designed as a MTB tour, it took all my strength.
      I was compensated by a lot of variety and great views.
      I started from Cologne Central Station over the Hohenzollern Bridge to the other side of the Rhine. There I followed this part of the way to sneak along green paths through trade and industry. Then I stayed between the places in the much used leisure and green spaces. A brief brute increase of over 20% brought me to Behnsberg Castle.
      From there we continued on steep trails and gravel, sometimes asphalted dirt roads. Past most of the villages with a partly wonderful panorama and also wonderful descents.
      The cycle path on the former Sülzbachbahn route is also very beautiful.

      Someone recently posted a link to the list of Berlin surveys. One of them is on this route: the Murder or Marderberg. With its 56.5 m above sea level just barely manageable

      Mostly nice round with lots of water.
      Old Havel arms in Sachsenhausen to Malz. The Oder-Havel Canal and the Schnell Havel towards Liebenwalde. The lake chain at Hammer. The Pinnowseen, Werbellinsee, Buckowsee and finally the clay engravings Eberswalde and finally the Finow Canal.
      The journeys through the wood plantations, in which one hops on rough gravel paths, are always a bit frustrating with the sky in view. The Hubertus stick has now also been feathered ...
      The pause between the pinnacles and the (re) discovery of the Buckowsees tore it out again.
      Since the greater part was on dirt roads, some of which were also quite deep, I was exhausted in the end.

      Actually, despite my heavy legs, I had tried to make a good cut. However, since I forgot to press the button for the recording, the actual speed remains unknown
      Whatever it was, driving fun was ultimately decisive today. 😎
