Today a big tour through the Vogtland was planned. Fliege wanted to drive mountains 😀 So it started, the first steep ascent was straight from Thossfell to Zobes. We continued via Trieb up to the Falkenstein - Oelsnitz cycle path. First of all, it was time to glide comfortably before heading up to TS Werda. It went on up to the roof of the Vogtland. At the Meiler we took a break and strengthened ourselves for the descent to TS Muldenberg. Via the Floßgrabenweg it went to Klingenthal and on to Kraslice. There was a great new bike path from the border to the village entrance, so that we didn't have to drive on the road.
In Kraslice the beautiful gliding was a thing of the past and it was 6km uphill.
Arrived at the top, komoot was and the map thought it was possible to go straight ahead with a small right turn, but unfortunately there was no way. So we took the closest one on the map. This also disappeared into nothing after about 100m so that we had to push through some undergrowth. Finally we found a way again, ok, it wasn't really suitable for driving, I had a lot of grumbling not to get off the handlebars, it went down that steeply.
After that was done, we were rewarded with a long descent to and through Erlbach.
Here, after 2/3 of the route, we took another longer break to strengthen ourselves. It went on to Markneukirchen. On the section, all the disadvantages of my new top tube bag became apparent: The cell phone wanted electricity, which in itself is not a problem, thanks to the power bank. But it just got really hot in the bag, so that it couldn't be used any more and the way had to be found a little creatively. Luckily it got out of hand and in Adorf it was possible to drive according to the map again. After the old BW we went over many mountains and valleys to Theuma and Neuensalz, where we could drive again quickly (therefore stayed on the federal road and not through the village)
After we arrived safely at the TS Pöhl, the TS Pöhl was used extensively to cool off.
A great tour!

Today I wanted to go to Elsterberg. It should be the path along the White Elster. Wow, pretty demanding, I was almost only in the single-digit speed range. Up, down, rocks, roots, extremely narrow. I had to balance a lot. That's why we went back down the street. Surprise: the road between Trieb and Barthmüle was closed, construction fence across the road. There was no getting through. So I had to go back and drove via Ruppertsgrün. Then there was also the rain, so that I got wet from the post office to Gansgrün.
Anyway, it was nice
