Sure, you can watch sunsets on the right bank of the Rhine.
But also on the former colliery dump northern Germany. You can look as far as at the sea, but the water and the sound of the waves have to think about it. 😄Well, for me always the goal of an evening round. 🌅🙂

Today I paid attention to my cutting speed and drove little gravel and forest paths.
Photo motifs were not my intention either, so they had no choice but to pout my way pouting. 😄My average speed of 5.5 m / s (almost 20 km / h) is more of a district class for some cycling enthusiasts, but it was a record for me this year. 🍾If this continues, I would soon prefer to wear earmuffs in case I accidentally break the sound barrier. 🤦♂️

I was gurgling around on the Lower Rhine and then visited the Peaceful Warrior on the banks of the Maas in the sunset.The way back was like chewing gum. Somehow I sometimes don't think about the way back when things are rolling so well. 🤦♂️🤷♂️
Well, but when you're lying on the couch, you're double or triple happy. 😆

Actually, I wanted to do a lap, which at the end shows the outline of a seahorse on the map.
But somehow nothing happened. 🤷♂️With a lot of imagination you could point a very slim guy with a big mouth into the tour. 😄On the next tour, I would rather try to do some simpler illustrations.
Maybe the Coranavirus or the Manhattan skyline.

Sunny, but with a cooling breeze from the northeast from the Rhine to the Meuse.
Freshly mowed hay meadows and green, billowing barley fields lined the bike paths.
A colorful flower meadow at the entrance to St. Hubert was particularly beautiful to look at, with crimson orange marigolds, with tufts and magerites. 🌼🐝🌼Incidentally, from the Niepkuhlenbrücke, a beautiful wooden bridge and a picturesque view of the Niepkuhlen, I was able to capture the very rare Lower Rhine short-necked flamigo in one picture. 😁In Venlo the city center seemed pretty empty. But maybe it was just my personal feeling. 🤷♂️
Anyway, I got chips. 🙂

Unlike on the left Lower Rhine, today we went more up and down on the right side of the Rhine (towards Baldeneysee). I also enjoyed a little more refreshingly cool forest instead of fields and meadows.
Then we went back without gradients along Lake Baldeney and the Ruhr.The rhodendrons are in full bloom right now. In addition to the popular wild and poppy flowers, they are a colorful eye-catcher that almost calls out to you to be photographed. 🌺😄
Just like the classicist Villa Hügel, which I only got in front of the lens from afar and in sections. The park around it was not accessible. 🤷♂️
For this I was able to inspect a tipi-like forest dwelling up close in Kruppwald. 😄

I actually wanted to talk to a couple of Galloways in the Brach forest.The Brachter Wald lies between Brüggen and the Dutch border.
The area was the largest ammunition depot for conventional weapons in all of Western Europe during the Cold War, with an incredible 45,000 tons of ammunition. 😮

Aaah, that was great.
First I pedaled a bit and drove over Kempen and the railway bike path to the nature reserve De Wittsee near the Dutch border.
There I was rewarded with great impressions of nature.Above all, the observation of a pair of storks that seemed to feel really comfortable there was impressive, yes somehow full of magical moments.The best thing was when a nutria swam past the storks.
The couple watched with interest, but also a little irritated, at this furious giant frog, how it passed the big birds in a very cool and straightforward manner.
Then I spotted a blonde beaver rat near the shore.A nice bike tour, where the weather and nature were nice. 🙂😄

As almost always, I enjoyed nature and the beautiful car-free bike paths of the Lower Rhine.
Also the pleasant temperature of a little under 20 °.
Actually, I like it even warmer, but I think the last two summers with their unusual heat periods have shaped me, so that midsummer can be stolen with the expected temperatures. 😄I discovered something on my tour, although it was only in the area. (Sometimes it is astonishing that you always discover something new near your home.)This time the mountain bike trails on Inrather Berg in Krefeld.
I think they're worth it for ambitious mountain bike riders.
There are 3 routes, from easy to difficult. So steep, stony, rooty and peppered with heels and stairs.I myself thought, however, just to look 👁👁 is also nice - and then I rolled on without broken bones and injuries. 😄By the way, there is a stone deity at the edge of the track, whom you should sacrifice a bit as a mountain bike crack, so that it protects you on the daring descent. 😁
