Mitten in Schleswig-Holstein, in der schönen Stadt Rendsburg, bin ich geboren und habe dort die ersten 20 Jahre meines Lebens verbracht.
Weitere 20 Jahre habe ich in Hamburg gewohnt. Jetzt habe ich bereits seit 25 Jahren mein Domizil in Schwarzenbek im Herzogtum Lauenburg in Schleswig-Holstein.Ich war schon immer viel auf Schusters Rappen und mit dem Fahrrad unterwegs gewesen. Zunächst in Rendsburg und Umgebung - später dann auch die ganze deutsche & dänische Nord/Ostseeküste rauf und runter sowie auch überregional in Deutschland, Europa und USA.Seit Oktober 2017 bin ich - nach über 45 Jahren im Berufsleben - im wohlverdienten Ruhestand und habe jetzt endlich mehr Zeit, mit meinem Trekkingrad, MTB oder auch gerne per pedes auf Entdeckertouren zu gehen.Ich fahre ein KALKHOFF INCLUDE mit einem 60er Rahmen und aktuell 47er Reifen. Eine "ALL DAY RIDE CONSTRUCTION" (E-Trekkingbike) mit der ich sowohl relativ schnell auf Straßen, als auch gut im leichten Gelände unterwegs sein kann.
Für schwierigeres Gelände habe ich ein E-MTB Fully SERIOUS BEAR ROCK mit einem 54er Rahmen und 57er Stollenreifen.
Bei Komoot bin ich seit 2014 registriert. Meine Touren zeichne ich mit Komoot seit 2017 auf - aktuell
mit meinem Smartphone Samsung Galaxy S10+ und fotografiere damit auch.
Das Punkteranking bei Komoot ist umstritten, wie die Reaktionen manchmal zeigen. Ich persönlich finde es gut und es macht mir Spaß.
LG Jörg 🙂
On the Walter Hammer hiking trail you can easily cycle through the NSG Boberger Niederung to Hamburg without a lot of disruptive car traffic and just as easily return on the Billewanderwerg.Billerhuder Insel is still a relatively unknown piece of green in the middle of Hamburg. I like to stop by there every now and then. In particular, I find the great waterfront properties with the houses and boats fascinating. Anyone who has a domicile there can consider themselves lucky.In the middle of Hamburg between Hamm and Rothenburgsort is the idyllic spot of green. Still unknown to many Hamburg residents, Billerhuder Insel used to be a place for makeshift homes.Today, the area of the garden colony Billerhude from 1921 extends over almost 300 hectares. With 56 permanent residents and a total of 581 allotment gardens, the island is the size of a small village and particularly popular with families with children and nature lovers. The island can be reached via the Ausschläger Billdeich or by canoe and boat.Although the rain radar showed few rain clouds for my tour area today, two short but heavy rain showers caught me in between. Fortunately, I was able to shelter under bridges so that I stayed almost dry. On the way back, I was followed by an ever-growing, threatening wall of clouds. There was even a rumble of thunder in the distance. But I was able to escape from her successfully and at the very end only got a few drops. Lucky. At home it's bright sunshine again right now.

Before tomorrow the big storm blows over us, I used the dry hours this afternoon for this tour on the left and right along the A 1 & A 24. It's good that the reliable rain radar exists. It's already pouring outside and I stayed dry on the tour.
The Theodor-Wulff-Höhe is a real Eldorado for mountain bikers. Even professionals get their money's worth here, with a guaranteed fun factor.
The "Öjendorfer mountain range" 😂 is just a hill, but also great, but relatively easy to drive on. Nevertheless, it is also really fun to rush down there.

On Sunday afternoon we just went cross-country again today. The gravel pit near Neuschönningstedt is a great MTB area. It's really fun to bike there. The steep ascents and descents in the loose sand make the trails interesting and require a high level of concentration. I was just able to finish the tour before the first raindrops.
I wish you all a nice Sunday evening

Here you can hike relaxed in beautiful, relatively untouched nature, just let your mind wander and recharge your batteries very well, far away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. We always like to come back here and enjoy slowing down.Falling meltwater once dug itself almost 72 meters deep into the earth. The result is the deepest lake in northern Germany. The Schaalsee with its islands and peninsulas, the so-called Werdern, is twisted and enchanted. The structurally wooded Werder in Seedorf and Groß Zecher invite you to make discoveries with their hiking trails and a special information system.sh-tourismus.de/a-naturschatz-schaalsee

Today we went down to Geesthacht to the Elbe and on along the Hohe Elbe to Lauenburg. It's really fun to bike there ... always up and down with great views of the Elbe. Across the country we went back to Schwarzenbek. It was a varied tour - there was something of all types of route. It was fun, but it was also really demanding in places, even though it was "only" 60 km. I am surprised that I am a bit more crumpled than usual. A clear sign that I have had a good workout

Sunshine attracted me to a tour of the Baltic Sea this morning. Unfortunately it soon became cloudy and was noticeably cooler than the last few days and later also really stormy. But it doesn't matter - you could compensate for that very well with a jacket, hat and thin gloves.We started from Neustadt in Holstein at the harbor and then continued along the Baltic Sea coast to Grömitz. There are beautiful stretches here, for relaxed cycling along the coast. In the villages, unfortunately, not always directly on the water, because cycling on the promenades is usually not permitted. If there is a lot going on there, that also makes sense. But you can also cycle in parallel with a view of the Baltic Sea. Outside of the villages, there are parts of the way directly along the coast.
There was a real holiday feeling in between.
However, some campsites have to be bypassed, the areas of which extend down to the Baltic Sea. Cyclists are understandably not welcome. But it doesn't matter, you just take a little detour, which is only a little longer at Bliesdorf.
Then we went back through the country and through the villages, past the basilica in Altenkrempe and the Hasselburg and Sierhagen estates, which are really worth seeing.
Nice tour, was worth it and I can happily recommend it. But not in summer when the weather is nice, on weekends or during vacation time, because then there is “all hell going on” on the beach.
Now is the best time and there are few people around. If you really like the hustle and bustle, this is the place for you in summer

After the morning mist had cleared, it became a really beautiful and sunny spring day. Finally from the start of the tour without a hat or gloves. At lunchtime I could even take off my thick winter jacket. Splendid. The tour led along the three very beautiful lakes into the Dosenmoor, which can also be easily crossed by bike. I looked for adders, but found none. But a blindworm crossed my path.
Today I had the can moor almost all to myself. There were only a few people there. Even at the lakes you had a lot of space to yourself.
A nice tour, which at 67 km is not too long for a day trip and which I can happily recommend.
If it is too long for you, you can vary and abbreviate it as you like
