About Bambus Kahler

Moin, erst seit ein paar Monaten komoot-Nutzer und von den >10k KM/Jahr in meinen Zwanzigern noch weit entfernt, kommt langsam, 20 Jahre später, die Zeit und Motivation zurück, sich so oft wie möglich aufs Rennrad zu setzen.
Hätte es damals schon den ganzen digitalen Schnickschnack gegeben, könnte ich tolle Highlights markieren. Jetzt muss ich die erst mal wieder erfahren - oder die alten Strecken zumindest schon mal planen 😁
Und da ich hier mit den Highlights Anderer schon echt schöne Runden planen konnte, auf die ich so nicht gekommen wäre - selbst vor der eigenen Haustüre - versuche ich auch sinnvoll beizutragen und vor allem tolle Abschnitte zu teilen.

      Done. All healthy at home again and today relaxed rolling out from Lammersdorf after the opening mountain classification in Monschau, which the big ones have surprisingly completely driven through. The next generation of cyclists is ready 😁For the fact that Monschau is such a tourist magnet for cyclists, it is astonishing how bad the cycle path network is or is simply missing in some places. The way out of the city today on Laufenstrasse leads up a narrow street with traffic islands. There are even signs saying that cyclists should ride on the street. At 10km / h the children were totally stressed out by the cars behind them that could not pass. I was waiting for the first honking 😡 After yesterday's impressions, I will take a bike around MON for now, just get excited.And tomorrow, after 3 days of sugar, I have to accelerate on my racing bike. Tourists on the Vennbahn scare 🤪

      Today we let the little one ride alone more - I stick to my realization that it was much better for my nerves and the father-son relationship that we shared the cargo bike. At this pace I definitely get to know the Vennbahn completely new and find nice places where I would otherwise miss.The pace of the big boys was a bit more moderate today and they are often out of the saddle. Yesterday's 45km and 450 vertical meters didn't leave you without a trace. And then on the 3rd day my daughter understood that in the end she would have driven the entire Vennbahn over 125km - they never listen to 😁 - and I didn't have that in the Palmarès when I was 10, due to the lack of bike-loving parents.The first injuries today. A wasp stung me because it got tangled in my arm and the big one lay down on the gravel run to Monschau and she can now answer the question why dad always wears these funny cycling gloves.Tomorrow morning then a cold start out of the Monschau boiler and then let it roll. And then we did it.

      Kick-off for me today 0 - with the shortest of the active drivers, I would estimate that 4/5 of the distance was a hand on the back. So the question arises rather about the state of the back of the father than the legs of the short one 😁 And the rain from Montenau to shortly before the finish would not have been needed. But with the big ones you can start planning real tours. The lamentation only started a little at the last meters of 450.Today, when driving less, I took a closer look at the construction sites in the Ourtal. Shortly after Reuland Castle, the route with the red and white bow has already started to slow down and there is still a lack of around 300m of connection, which, however, is avoided asphalted as before.And then a little further there is a full closure of the Vennbahn and one is diverted over really rough gravel and clay. Not an issue today and yesterday, but a show stopper for the "I ride the Vennbahn back and forth on the road bike in one day".The route over the narrow bridge in the Lommersweiler forest is also interesting because it ends in a small mini-trail. And then the next piece of gravel follows shortly before Hemmeres. Thus, the southern part of the Vennbahn remains rather unsuitable for racing bikes.Today I also pressed the button for the first time at the Amel rest area to activate the audio track, which tells something about the influence of humans on nature. The German voices have such a blatant Eifel song, wonderful. You have to give yourself ... Have to ask the Flemish and Walloon acquaintances whether the NL and FR soundtrack is similarly entertaining.

      A friend absolutely wanted to cycle the Vennbahn completely from Luxembourg to Aachen with his two children. His wife didn't feel like it, and mine obviously wanted four days off without the rest of the family. And a flea was already put in my ear, to go with our blanks. Well, cycling is always possible 😏 I just don't have the patience to drive so slowly that our short bike comes along. So the front of the cargo bike.1st stage Luxembourg to Reuland Castle: 18km. 18km ?! For this, the whole Hantier with a cargo bike, cart down on a trailer, unload etc.?! No, I don't think so ...
      So our big one packed into the team 18km and they cycled from Luxembourg to Burg Reuland today and I also went there with the short from Aachen.
      Arrogance of the racing cyclist: 106km is easy, because I know the Vennbahn inside out (and still missed the junction shortly after KM 100 and pushed through to the German-Belgian border in Steinebrück 😳)Reality with 50kg bike, 25kg passenger, 15kg luggage and Nkg driver looked different. And at some point the Bosch Performance Motor in Eco Mode is just a gentle breeze that pushes with it. But the saving Chimay and Eifel brune were reached and from now on everything is easy (no learning effect 😁)Tomorrow 44 to Robertville, then transition stage to Monschau with 19 and final 48 back to Aachen. Let's see how the youngest of the troops will take away the queen stage with 450 meters altitude tomorrow.

      If not to work in the second city, then a three-day vacation with one of the children. And therefore the desired destinations, which we were able to ride with the free borrowed cargo bike (main-lastenrad.de). First splash around the Main in the LiLu, then look at the airport and to the forest playground.
      The upper hog stair was then for me to replenish the fluid balance - hot today in FRA.

      + great new asphalt surface, the hammer as smooth and clean
      - The wind couldn't be worse today. 3/4 of the way wind from the side in front. And less wind just where you do the few vertical meters.
      - Few people on the route and only a group of 12 men (with> 100k EUR material in total 😂) to be taken with the usual amateurs, who beat the 4km in just over 5min. So always alone in the wind 😢
      - in the 3rd hour stomach cramps from the powder (must try something else)
      + despite everything in lap 18/19 the second best time and in lap 16/19 the third best time. If there is no wind or even a tailwind, PR will soon fall for the round.
      It is always worth the hour drive to Zolder. For 3h non-stop driving alone without having to pay much attention (you can hear the D-train on the whistle of the Aero Carbon wheels at 300m 😁)
