Ich bin gern draußen unterwegs, ob mit dem Gravel- oder Mountainbike, Wander- oder Laufschuhen oder auf Ski, Hauptsache in der Natur und vorzugsweise abseits asphaltierter Straßen.
A very nice gravel tour with many highlights. From the center of Leipzig we first went along the Elster to the southern lakes. Here you come to Knauthain Castle. Then on to the Trages dump and to the Nimbschen monastery in the Mulde valley. Along the Mulde we passed Grimma and Trebsen Castle before we left the Mulde valley again and continued to Johannas Höhe. Then off into the Wermsdorf Forest, past barrows to Wermsdorf. There, of course, had to be a detour to Hubertusburg, before going back through the forest and past the old ramparts of a moated castle towards Collmberg. From this highest point of the tour it went back to the Muldetal and Wurzen and finally through the Planitzwald back towards Leipzig. The tour runs largely over field and forest paths, some small trails are also included. The asphalt boulders are partly cycle paths and side streets, the more heavily frequented street passages never last long.

Wonderful gravel tour into the Mulde valley with a high share of gravel and some highlights. In addition to the Nimbschen monastery, you pass through Grimma and Trebsen Castle. The route is very varied and leads over forest, field and bike paths and only rarely and briefly over roads.

Friday and finally usable weather, the first time this week. The wind was blowing properly from the southwest, but the conditions were always better than in the last few days and so it was again in the direction of Geiseltalsee and around it. Not a new route, but always nice and thanks to the wind with a good training effect 😉.

We traditionally hike on Good Friday, so this morning we go to the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. From the Lichtenhain waterfall it went through the wild hell to the Carolafelsen and back over the cowshed. In particular, the passages in the "wild hell" are really great, a little climbing adventure. Since the weather was not quite as spring-like as in the last few days, the paths and climbing passages were also pleasantly little frequented, but you are happy to accept a little drizzle and fresh temperatures. Only with the prospects could it have briefly clarified 😉.

Even today there was again very pleasant spring weather, which could not be left unused. So briefly thought about where to go and decided in favor of the Mulde valley. Over beautiful gravel routes, forest and field paths, few roads and some nice paths we went towards Mulde. First past the Cospudener, Markkleeberger and Störmthaler See, through the Oberholz and over the Hirschberg to the Nimbschen monastery. Then rolled on over Grimma along the Mulde to Trebsen and then over the Planitzwald towards Nauenhof and back - all in all a very nice tour.

Finally another spring day that deserves the name. So after work, grabbed the bike and off we went into the sunset. The forest and field paths are already a little dry, so that it wasn't a total mud fight, it could be graveled nicely 😉. In the next few days, the underground will certainly be even better.

Somehow I didn't feel like spring today, it was icy, off the asphalt also muddy, but what the heck ... We had planned a route between 70 and 100km today, but then we quickly agreed, considering the conditions, the 100 to leave today. So we went to Groitzsch and Pegau, nice little towns in the south of Leipzig. Then past one of the last opencast mines, a nice round.

Today we went with a lot of headwind over field, forest, bike paths and asphalt to the Geiseltalsee. On the return trip you could then sail with a tail wind 😉. The low temperatures made for empty paths, but also for cold feet, you never have everything good together 😂🤷🏻♂️.
