      Friday when cranking into the company strange ouch in the knees.
      Therefore tour suspended yesterday🚳.
      Actually today too, but after 1 hour clicking on the computer at seven then we went to take a quick breath.
      You kind of want to know how you're doing
      Conclusion: City / overland travel without any problems, I'm probably fit again ... 😊

      Sunday rest day, so no elevation gain.
      I once followed Petra's (i.e. P E T R A😉) tip and looked at the Speyrer Industriehof.
      Very interesting (even though everything to and from me was not there😄), thank you very much for that ... 👍
      Hmm, headlights only burned on the small step today, it was bad blind flight in places. In the middle of Mannheim then completely off, batteries rubbed warm, then started again.
      Strange, that was never before, had gloves on, but it wasn't that cold either.
      Before anyone asks, yes, I like fog 😊Drinking bottle used again as a bike stand and forgotten when driving off, only noticed a few kilometers laterNice lap, got up not a minute too early for it😃

      Daily destination Drachenfels.From Wachenheim, nice light mood to kneel down again. That helped to keep my typical "What do I always do to myself here?"(South? -) Summit view great.But strange, although we used to be here regularly, today everything seemed totally strange to me
      Everything was still clear up to Lambertskreuz.
      Hmm, we often had a Riesling stop back then. Is there a connection?
      Anyway, the view was terrific.Somewhere near the Friedrichsbrunnen a wet root almost cut me apart, just caught me😨. From the sheer adrenaline rush at least 3 minutes. no longer blinked ... 😳😊The "Lautrer" road out to Dürkheim was fun again, every time it feels like a tailwind🙂

      Holiday figure eight over Weinbiet and Eckkopf.Funny, thought colleague Wandermichel😉 at first, he had recently uploaded old pictures, but the Dürkheim Ferris wheel is actually back.
      Is even nicely lit. 😃
      (I have to go there again with the right camera).
      Almost popped into a busload of harvest workers in front of Deidesheim, all of them dressed in nice dark clothes, of course. 😲 (Besides me, nobody has to be out that early)

      Beginning of the Weinbiet ascent via Neustadt - Meisental.
      Phew, whoever lives there has a sports badge, or thinks 3 times whether breakfast really needs to be rolls from the bakery in the valley. ... 😯
      The transmission mast at the top was pretty loud because of the strong wind.
      Next stop corner head,
      Still very windy, but still daring to climb the tower🤢.
      (In any case, the flag had to struggle not to fly away)
      The jogging slope downhill and I won't become friends anymore, it took me a moment at Forst until I felt my fingers again ... 🙄But still it was nice again ... 😊

      Nothing new in the Ried.
      No fog, no beautiful sunrise, but water everywhere on the road 💧😯
      My sister-in-law lives 100m from the level crossing in Lorsch. Train was through before I was recognized ... lucky enough🥳🙃🙃

      Typically, just because the red was allowed on the Kalmit yesterday, it was of course not enough today to just accompany Andreas and Carsten to WHERE.
      No, the black had to show me Wiesoppenheim and Heßheim before we could finally go home
      At least I noticed that the raccoon on the Worms graffiti wall is not a picture but a mosaic🙂

      It was time to ask the K question.
      Can I do the Kalmit (or will she manage me?) 🤔
      (Some people do it easily after work, I preferred to take a day off. 😉)
      First warmed up over the Rotsteig.We really started from Erfenstein.
      I have no idea what is dripping from the trees
      I permanently sank slightly into the damp forest floor, so it felt like winding up a pasted strip of wallpaper.
      Fortunately, the Rohloff had all 14 gears with it😵
      In any case, the view of the Kalmit was worth the effort.Back down in the Rhine valley, a strong wind came up, thankfully only from the side or from behind ... 🙂Tour was more than worth the vacation day,
      The red one also did a great job again, I just had to steer and pedal ... 😄😄
      (P.S .: The length and height of the route were of course meticulously planned ... 😊)

      Tour-free does not mean sitting in it.
      Because last Tuesday, hooked, sneaked into the Lampertheimer Biedensand again.
      The spot on earth is really magical in the morning.
      Actually wanted to look for photo spots when autumn starts, but instead just stood there for minutes and listened to the silence (and the birds).
      I was very close to hugging a tree, wonderful, nothing annoys me today .... 🌳😊

      Topics for today:
      Because of last week, new brake pads were run in, after a couple of bridges the effect is slowly coming.
      Picture 23 - I was a bit careless with the old ones😮
      Even at the front, parts that shouldn't have any contact have already slowed down. So that's where this "extra-zing-zing" came from recently. 🙄
      New Ergon saddle discontinued.
      With Infinergy "my" company. If the stuff is no good, I can at least complain directly to my colleagues. 😄
      Tried new (3/4) cycling shorts. Fits and feels good. Now I know again what the 20% elastane on the label should be for.
      (With the "old" ones, it was basically just a layer of dust on top
      Side note Figure 24: "Peel-off" adapter for Oktalink.
      have been dealing with chemicals that are subject to labeling for> 30 years, but a screw as a CMR substance was not included ... 🤔😉
      Have a good time...
