Gelegenheitsfahrer mit Vorliebe für Rundtouren. Jahresziel für mich Couchpotatoe: 1.000 km
Today we went to Dilsberg. What I think was a nice tour, but there was a section of the route that was quite borderline, namely the descent to Neckarhäuserhof. Here it was cross-country, no idea why Komoot considers this to be road bike suitable. The wind wasn't on my side today, but the temperatures were.

I finally made the long-planned tour to Lorsch Abbey.
As usual, it started at the HD-Weststadt / Südstadt train station, always heading north out of Heidelberg: Handschuhsheim with the Tiefburg and Friedenskirche was passed, then along allotments to Dossenheim, Schriesheim (view of the Strahlenburg) and further north Hohensachsen to Weinheim. This whole passage was easy to drive, the paths used were very quiet (at least on Sunday).
The next milestone was Heppenheim, which will certainly be one of my next tour destinations, because I liked what I saw of Heppenheim a lot.
The northernmost point of the tour was then Bensheim. Up to this point we drove along very good roads. In Bensheim, we continued west until after a short drive we arrived in Lorsch. Here Komoot led me safely to the monastery, where the electrolyte balance was first filled with a cool shandy. After a short walk through the monastery, we headed south back towards Heidelberg. You pass Hüttenfeld, Viernheim, Heddesheim and finally Ladenburg. Between the places you cycle on wonderful bike paths in the green or through fields. Very good! In Ladenburg I chose the route through the old town. The beautiful buildings excuse the rumbling on the cobblestones.
You can reach Heidelberg itself in Neuenheimer Feld, drive past the zoo and the main train station and end again at the starting point.

Today I used the good weather and “lazzy Friday” to cycle to work. Strictly speaking, only back, because there was a train to Eberbach.
I can understand that you have to buy a ticket for the bike at peak times in the transport association, but 6 €? That is daunting (or the machine fooled me).
From Eberbach to Heidelberg we went along the Neckar. It drives quite well, but you can tell on the racing bike what a lousy condition many roads are in.
