About StSt aus CB
Fahrrad bedeutet Freiheit! Es lassen sich damit Wege zurücklegen, die zu Fuß entweder zu weit oder zu unbequem wären. Zudem trägt es uns von A nach B - über Stock und Stein, bei Sonne, Wind und Regen - in deutlich kürzerer Zeit, als es unsere Füße je könnten. Dabei braucht es weder Futter, Kraftstoff noch einen Führerschein - ein wenig Liebe und Pflege reicht völlig aus.Da ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass es als Kind mein größtes Glück, im Berufsleben auch schon mal der "Dienstesel" und im privaten ein treuer Begleiter ist.Der Weg ist das Ziel und Wege haben viele Ziele. Ich freue mich, Euch auf meinen Wegen zu seh'n.StSt aus CB

I have an appointment - 7:00 a.m. in Drebkau Kausche. The "direct" route leads from Cottbus via Kolkwitz, Leuthen, Laubst. There has to be so much time, this position of the sun only occurs once a day.The sun is also really happy - almost not a cloud in the sky, warm and a "long shadow" shows me the way. No matter where I pass; everything shines and shines, grasses sway in the light breeze, the foliage is flooded with light.Actually, we want to go on straight away, me and my cousin from Kausche. But then she was able to persuade me to have a small breakfast (1½ hours). One look at the clock of the community center Kausche and everything was clear: this is where the time is.The first common goal should be Steinitz - Cori recently went hiking here (komoot.de/tour/365485498) and the press reports positive things (maerkischer-bote.de/region/steinitzer-dorfkirche-ist -ein-cultural-historical-treasure-207730) - the renovation of unique cultural assets is funded.We took the "detour" across the street to get to the Steinitz staircase, the hiking trail is not for bikes. Climbing the 100 steps is particularly worthwhile when the view is clear - although the earth is a sphere, you can see for dozens of kilometers.On the further way to "Wolkenberg" we probably missed the junction, in any case we suddenly found ourselves in a dead end - the Stradower Straße blocks the former path. But we have discovered a source of recultivation, the home of thousands of workers - those who are responsible for the fertilization of nature - bees.Missed another junction and we were allowed to take a steep gravel path up to the Wolkenberg - the detour to the viewpoint was worth it for us. Then, with our rather smooth tires, take the same path very carefully downhill again.The "long" stretch to the east around the opencast mine is for racing cyclists; a lot of asphalt, hardly any traffic, a long view ahead. But also exactly the right thing for us at this time - we talk.The south lookout point is relatively new - until not too long ago a road (rather a path) led directly to the north side. Incredible, we've never been so close to the exposed coal.After entering Proschim, I almost drove into the back of my cousin's. Suddenly she slowed down, really wanted to show me the “Scheckerlein” (schmeckerlein.de) - the best “Flammkuchen under the starry sky” are available here. Unfortunately the kitchen was closed, but the boss saw us and we got a private tour through her lovingly tended garden. If that's not a highlight !?The coal mining will probably not move any further, Proschim will "survive". Depending on the season, we are currently cycling through “blooming landscapes”. Let us hope that the structural change will keep what politics has promised us.Perhaps Gutshaus Geisendorf will also become a magnet for the region. With what has already been renovated and can be walked on and viewed, plus the cultural offerings, it is easy to imagine.From here our way through Raakow led directly back to Kausche, our round trip was over, my cousin was back home. For my part, I still had a few kilometers - also to process what I had experienced on the way to Cottbus.We, my cousin and I, had "lost sight of each other" for many years and "by chance" found each other again through cycling. So the joint bike tour turned into a "big round of talks". We will both think about this trip for a long time.We'll do that again!

Six o'clock in the morning. The sun rose a good hour ago. My path leads east. The long shadows of the city protect against too much light in the face.I'm not the only one, balloonists also appreciate the morning hours. My first goal is the Schlichower Höhe. My eyes wander over the Baltic Sea to the Jänschwalde power plant. Then a look back to Cottbus, the court tower next to the upper church - viewed from a distance, everything is not far apart.From Schlichow you go directly along the slope of the Baltic Sea. The single trail (komoot.de/highlight/3158191) begins to grow over, alone I won't be able to stop the nettles or the blackberries. The path can still be seen, even if the grass is already as high as a man - I wish I had long trousers on.You have reached the Klein Lieskow memorial, the narrow path along the fence invites you to continue. Except for a single section where the sand of the Baltic Sea forces me to dismount, the path is firm and easy to navigate.From the southern vantage point (komoot.de/highlight/483508) asphalt and bulkheads determine the way again. Halfway up after Heinersbrück I make a right turn - my goal is the Klinger See.Even if the question of where all the water should come from must be allowed, I can well imagine that this lake will be surrounded by one or the other insider tip at some point. But until then there is still a lot to ...The complete loop around the lake is about 13 km and can be easily ridden by bike or e-bike. Those who ride a mountain bike like me simply take the paths closer to the dump.The last destination before going home should be the Kathlower Mühle again. It is a shame that it has been left to decay, since the well-used Fürst-Pückler-Weg leads right past it.It is now after nine o'clock, the first larger groups come towards me from the direction of Cottbus. Home - coffee and breakfast are already waiting.

Today's destination is the Luch von Brodtkowitz. Actually a hiking highlight (komoot.de/highlight/2996412), but that doesn't stop me from taking the bike - after all, I have to get there first ;-)Brodtkowitz is on the route between Wiesendorf and Casel and belongs to the Kolkwitz community. For me the fastest way from CB to Glinzig is always parallel to the railway line and then along the Priorgraben. From Kackrow to Wiesendorf then the bicycle road through the forest. Not far to the south and you have already reached the small village of Brodtkowitz.
∑ Except for a short section behind the Hirschtich (Kolkwitz), the entire route is suitable for cycling.As soon as I arrived in Brodtkowitz (the place is not that big) I was shown the way - “Zum Luch”, what a coincidence.Luche are not atypical in Brandenburg. These are mostly extensive, mossy lowlands. And it is not uncommon for them to be associated with ghastly legends with evil characters. Since I don't know anything about this one, I didn't notice anything. Ticks, mosquitoes and other animals didn't bother me either, although I tried to get closer on foot - which was too bogus for me.You can't go directly from here, but going back isn't an option for me either. Especially not when the next path (according to Komoot / openStreetMap) querWaldEin is in the immediate vicinity. No sooner said than done - for a moment querWaldEinWow what is that A table-deck you in the middle of the forest. Even if there is not necessarily something for me now, I have never seen such an extensive feeding and observation area.The mountain bike part ends with Illmersdorf and the journey turns back to cycling - lots of asphalt, lots of distance, lots of vision. Exactly the right thing to just kick your head free again.As a memory, the Luch von Brodtkowitz remains and the good feeling of having discovered something again.

*** HIKING INVITATION ***
"MitWandern 2021 - 3 days through Germany together"Dear hiking friends,From July 16 to 18, 2021, komoot's largest relay hike to date will take place.
For this relay hike, 7 active komoot users have come together to organize this XXL campaign. The initiator is Jan, who had already organized a 1200 km relay hike in NRW over Whitsun 2021.-----The following principles apply:
- The start and end point must be identical, the route may differ
- It doesn't matter in which direction (A-B, B-A) you run
- Your komoot profile must not be "private" because every tour should be public
- At the end of the tour you simply mark the account "MitWandern 2021" so that we can add to the collection
- To make it easier for us to sort the collection into the correct order, it would be great if you had the stage number at the front of the tour (you can of course change that afterwards)----To assign the stages, we have created 8 doodle surveys:
E001 - E029:
E030 - E052:
E053 - E067:
E068 - E083
E084 - E106:
E107 - E115:
E116 - E137:
E138 - E159:
doodle.com/poll/tebpwvefez3ye45dSimply enter your name under which you are active at komoot and the link to your komoot profile. Just choose your desired stage, if it is still free.Should you still not be able to walk your set route, please let us know so that we can re-open the tour for other interested parties.----The corresponding collection:

"The weather" says: It's going to be summer today. That means: sunshine, cumulus clouds and hardly a breeze. And means: Today the roads will be full. Nice - but I don't want to.So get up early, 6:00 a.m. out of town. First of all, using the bike paths to the Branitzer Park. The city is empty. Buildings as well as nature shine pleasantly warm in the light of the rising sun. Nose and gaze lead further east.I already know the newly renovated “Englische Allee” - not a part of the Fürst-Pückler Weg. After the L49 (CB-Forst) this time not straight ahead but to the right in the direction of Forst. On the section to Haasow, the years can be felt - not so much mine, but rather those that nature had to "ventilate" the asphalt. But nowhere near as bad as that the path is impassable!I find the harassment much more annoying, like the one at the B168 bypass. I understand their purpose, but why the space has to be so narrow that there is hardly any space for a bicycle with a driver or even for a vehicle the size of a stroller, I cannot understand.From Haasow take the Fahrradstraße to the Kathlower Mühle (probably built in 1636, it is anything but worth seeing today) and from there along the railway line towards Klinge.I never got to Klinge - for me the bike path along the road practically continued. The asphalt cowboy existence came to an end with that, but there is no worse driving along the pipeline route. Shortly before Dubrau it got a bit bumpy, but this is less due to the nature of the matter than to the road filled with rubble - well, it may be useful for a tractor.I dropped the idea of moving from Dubrau back to the forest. The dirt road looks good, but when nature hits back from right and left ...I'd rather have a look at the gravel pit in Jethe. Yes, the beach and lake are "closed", but a real recommendation (apart from the occasional party rubbish). The sky has drawn a bit in the meantime. It got chilly with my short panties.Since I want to be home again for breakfast, I must slowly change direction. Sergen would be a nice target! There should also be a castle and a castle pond? Okay, lock less now. But a nice, single-storey mansion or manor house. I'll go there.When I arrive in Sergen, the further course is clear to me: Komptendorf - Laubsdorf - Neuhausen ... and then unerringly for breakfast.But then not, at least not right away. Groß Oßnig - Harnischdorf - towards Schorbus and then finally visit the Teufelstein. The journey is the goal, said and done.The Teufelstein is on the “Schorbus hiking trail”, about 10 meters from “my” bike path (Groß Gaglower Weg). I can't say whether the “hiking trail” will continue from being a devil - and if so, where. In any case, this is the end of the Komoot map.When you enter Cottbus, the dark clouds disappear again. And the city is no longer so empty. Quickly over the "Sachsendorfer Wiesen", "The three level crossings", along the "Black Path" and I have arrived.The bike is quickly brought to the cellar. It smells like fresh rolls upstairs ...

Last Thursday (May 20th, 2021) the Englische Allee cycle path in Branitz was opened again. After a horse (probably with a rider) damaged the almost finished but still closed path, the renovation took a little longer than planned. The underground should be something very special. So I wanted to drive it right away. That's right - is recommended!We continued in the direction of “The Baltic Sea” - it always works 😏. I just couldn't agree on whether it was about Haasow or Dissenchen. So just go straight on. That was probably not the worst idea - the view to the east: rain.At the Baltic Sea, as always, along the fence. That it is quite sandy here in parts does not matter. I am rewarded with the view of the heap that has not yet been flooded by the water. Due to the low sun, the edges protrude craggy, the almost artistic relief attracts the eye magically.I don't want to go home yet, so the Spreeweg heading north, first past Skadow, then past Döbbrick.I couldn't quite avoid the rain. But I was spared the effusions that could be seen around me.It's later than usual, the (village) streets are almost empty and I feel like walking. Try out what racing cyclists like, and at some point I'll actually be overtaken by one of these guys. My spontaneous glance at the speedometer calmed me down - no, I actually still drive.Papitz, Dahlitz, Kolkwitz - quickly collect a few nice impressions - and then I was back in Cottbus. Time passed quickly, as I had only just started ...

It is not always easy to motivate someone who is still five years old. “Ship's playground” and then to Grandma seems to have worked. At least we were on the move, even if not always “on” the bike.Sometimes you just have to set priorities, family comes first - and what the grandma is to one, the grandson is to the other.

At the beginning it was more the search for the what, that is, “just cycling around a little”. But then, leaving the Spreeradweg again at the “Bridge over the Spree”, I came across a beautiful single trail, which I am guaranteed not to have ridden for the last time.The path first leads along heating pipes, exactly those that I followed on another tour in the opposite direction of Willmersdorf. The closer I get to Saspow, the more beautiful and well-groomed the path becomes. It leads directly along the river.This path ends in Saspow at the shipyard's playground. One highlight follows the next. The paths here are wide enough that, with a little consideration, there is room for children, hikers and cyclists. And it has to, because the place is popular and well attended.It went on along the river. North around (Neu-) Schmellwitz, up to the tram depot - what is now called the depot.The actual path here leads north, but since I wanted to go west, I was almost forced to take the forest path. However, I didn't think that in the end the single trail would become a bike race - which is really nice.From Sielow on there isn't much to report anymore, we just went home quickly.

After the unsuccessful search 4 days ago (komoot.de/tour/366147911) I want to know today: What kind of pond is that on the Komoot map? This should be my first tour section today.This time coming from the Branitz side, the goal was reached in a very short time. "Medium" to "Difficult" should be some sections, but none of that was included. I think I'll soon drive the way to the pond again with my grandson. Together with the Branitzer Park, this is a beautiful tour with a real goal (komoot.de/highlight/3244137).As now, I don't have a real plan. Nearby is Kiekebusch. Then maybe to Frauendorf and from there along the Spree to the Bräsinchen dam. No sooner said than done - the second tour section can begin.A nasty surprise near Kiekebusch: mistress, master and three huge free-roaming dogs in a small field. Quickly made a bow and the two had time to put her on the leash. Seen, dared. On the other side of the field driving in the right direction again, I suddenly had the yapping, big white Labrador on the rear wheel. "Unimpressed" 😰 driving on, at some point he listened to the calls of his master ...“Real” bike paths are not necessarily my thing, at least not as long as the forest fire warning levels allow. So always looking for the forest and meadow floor along the Spree. Behind Frauendorf then the highlight 🤩 (komoot.de/highlight/3243639), nothing would go here with grandchildren 😉It also starts well: steeply up, then - vertically towards the Spree - steeply down again. Later the tour became "safer" but no less interesting!Because it was so nice from Bräsinchen further through the forest - somehow in the direction of Schäferberg and then Groß Döbbern.This is where my search for the unknown ended for the time being, and the third section of the tour began. Along the road via Auras, Schorbus to Leuthen and then from there the beautiful bike path to Kolkwitz. So quickly “do a few more kilometers” and then sit at the table at home, freshly showered, for dinner.It was nice 🤗

For some it is Ascension Day for others. Neither is necessarily what I know how to pay homage to. But it's a "Free Day" so we're doing a "Free Day Tour" 🚴We, this is my grandson and me. The goal is indefinite. We will see where the journey is going, what there is to see and experience and if we are like that, we will get food and drink out of the bike bags and have a picnic 🥪🍎🥤Due to the "early hour", but certainly also "thanks" to the weather, there are only a few people on the trails. We met a small group of young people who couldn't help but say "Morning practice" 😁The Madlower Gorges are not just a highlight for children. Also exciting is the history of its creation, the connection with the Cottbus Volkspark and what is left of it today.At the end of the day, spraying the mud off the bike at high pressure, that's fun ⛲It was a very nice morning - for grandpa and grandchildren.It's the weekend soon. And whatever the weather will be ... it will be nice 🌈
