...die schönste Verbindung zweier Punkte ist eine Gravelrunde" Update 2021: Winter verabschiedet sich - es kann wieder beinfrei pedaliert werden! - Frischluft und Natur stehen bei mir hoch im Kurs. Seit 2020 drängt sich nun das Radfahren vor die Fotografie und das Laufen (altdeutsch "joggen" ;-) ) Bisher erkunde ich vor allem mein näheres Umland und versuche, etwas mehr Reichweite zu erreichen. Unterwegs bin ich nun seit Frühling 21 mit einem Gravel (ohne Motor ;-) und freue mich auf eine frost- und regenfreie Saison und Touren außerhalb der Komfortzone und des Nahbereiches.
A great tour cycled by and with Jensemann79. Nice roll, a bit of forest, three waves poured into asphalt were the set for a nice trip to a great game restaurant with wonderful game goulsch and crispy, crispy rösti ... Table was reserved, sun ordered and on time, rain known and avoided, cyclists Alster on the terrace ... Radlerherz, that was the full service! - I often book here 😉👍Merci Jens!

I had the planning done for the first time with my navigation system using the Garmin's roundtrip function: approx. 50km, starting in the west ... three routes were given out, these were chosen here, and at the Mariensee monastery I came up with the idea of the castle in Neustadt to visit ... unfortunately closed event. But a wonderful tour on many solid roads and asphalt, the forest paths in the photos were small detours to test the new front wheel and tires ... runs! 😁👍

Wonderful landscape experience with small challenges that do not have to put anyone off. You drive through beautiful mixed forest through seas of green bushes on flowing single trails, on forest highways, through open heath valleys on fine gravel roads, there are also a few paved roads with alternative paths and of course up to the Wilseder Berg with a wonderful all-round view.
After the last rainfalls, the sandy passages are mostly grippy and easy to drive, you should only really be careful in the crossing areas of the paths or on horse trails. The western approach to the Wilseder Berg is short and crisp, but doable. The forest passages are beautiful and pleasantly shady in the heat, but the play of shadows shouldn't distract from the few roots.
Many of the trails are very narrow, so please be considerate of each other.
For me it was a first tire test in the heather and I am very satisfied with the 45 Schwalbe Bite in the front and 40 Allround in the rear.

The "green ring Hanover" (the ring is approx. 80km long, the other 45km were to and from Elze.) Tackled for city cycling including travel from Elze. So the ring started in the north near the CCL Langenhagen. Parking lot, snack bar, public transport - everything is there. In a counter-clockwise direction, first to the east, south, west and then back to the north. I was totally amazed how green the first two thirds of the circuit in particular are. The highlight for me is the Kronsberge in the south and the bathing lakes. Path quality is mostly very good, asphalt, fine gravel, little field and forest path. Lots of water along the way, so mosquito protection is important! You can always find food without any problems if you are satisfied with a gas station. The route recommendation is published on the Hanover website. Read this for the first time here at komoot, but the route on the homepage was imported incorrectly and then corrected manually. Surprised that the Leinebrücke in the south-western part of the route (near Letter, Uferstrasse) is fully closed without replacement - I overlooked it when planning, komoot shows the closure. The spontaneous detour, however, is less attractive. From me: Thumbs up for the tour, there is still room for improvement in the western area. 🙂
PS: In the last third in particular, I often took the wrong descent and drove back, so I didn't follow it 1: 1, I'd rather "smooth out" manually beforehand. 😉

The late evening lap creates pleasant temperatures ... dreamy, rushing through the evening forest at 25 ° C, as the city bike kilometers wash off much more easily. 😁 Mosquitoes and horseflies in natural waters felt like sandblasting on the face 🙄 - the planned break at Würmsee was moved to the fountain in Grossburgwedel. Also nice and mosquito-free ... 😊

A great round with Jensemann at Gut Sundern, which was really fun. He built an extremely beautiful, varied route with changing and well-drivable surfaces, also for gravel! Forests and fields and meadows showed their best side, the sun was sunbathing, the wind was blowing ... 😁
All-round service included. At the end of the stage, Jens conjured up a cup of coffee and biscuits from his backpack and at the end there was a delicious waffle, coffee and shandy .. the perfect day! Thank you very much! ... the extended waffle break worked wonders: 😁👍 instead of taking a short Apshaltweg towards home we went back refreshed and spontaneously on new paths in a wide arc ... it was great! MERCI and happy greetings!

extensive circumnavigation of the Brelinger Berg - a lot of asphalt on quiet roads (at least this evening ;-)) and some gravel sections. The passage between Helstorfer and Otternhagener Moor is still quite muddy. A personal highlight for me was the discovery of the small "wet biotope Mergelkuhle" in Scharrel - a beautiful, shady resting place.
Personal anecdote: Ever since you started a slight climb (south of Brelinger Berg) at 25km / h with your personal best when you were suddenly overtaken by three TimeTrail riders on AeroBikes including Aero helmets at 43km / h? .... ( the 43km / I later took Stravas Flyby) ... weia - it burned itself into an endless loop * laughs * ... to the three guys: RESPECT! :-)
