      First bike tour in 2021 - with almost spring-like temperatures. Probably the earliest start to the season in long, long years. The new bridge over the Oker between Werlaburgdorf and Börßum is not yet passable. The actual bridge is finished, but there are still no access options on both sides.
      Residual snow is in the shadow areas, but definitely not for long.
      So, off to the 2021 cycling season - I'm curious myself which long tour I'm thinking of this year: Prague is already on the shortlist.

      In terms of the weather, it could have been a summer day today, nice autumn tour with sun and warm wind

      Wow, very beautiful old town with absolute Hanseatic flair, many small streets with corresponding shops. Coffee, cake and tea in Café Retro - time left standing. And with the Forum Danzig, of course, a shopping center of gigantic proportions (nothing bought, just looked in amazement😉).
      The two hours from Łeba here and an additional night in Gdansk were really worth it.

      by rental bike from the hotel to Europe's largest shifting dune - really impo-sand (t). Between 30 and 42 meters in height in relation to sea level. This is how you can imagine the desert. Also interesting how steep the dune drops to the pine forest and then the green forest floor begins really abruptly. Despite the beginning rain a worthwhile tour.

      Stroll through the center of Łeba, off-season, occasionally open shops, display boards in three languages: Polish, German and English.

      Beautiful, almost deserted Baltic Sea beach, wonderfully windy, not cold and back even sun. So pure relaxation!

      After the relaxed train journey Bremerhaven - Braunschweig (Lower Saxony ticket + ticket for the 🚲) from Braunschweig train station on the familiar route towards home. Of course not without the almost traditional ice cream set in Schladen at Nino & Maria.
      Once again we arrived home without an accident or breakdown. For whoever: thank you
      And provided first aid to a fallen cyclist for the first time. For this reason alone, it has been worthwhile to carry the EH set with you for years, no, ... to take it with you.

      Final stage: on the left Weser dike in the morning at 9 o'clock in a fairly fresh temperature. Beautiful houses right on the dike, but without a view of the water. Enjoyed coffee right next to the river in Brake. Continue to Nordenham and then take the ferry over to Bremerhaven. There is a lot on offer in the port area, climate house, zoo, emigration museum, etc.
      Cycling in Bremerhaven was relaxed.
      With that I have reached the end of my tour.
      Conclusion: 455 kilometers along the water, at first very little and distant, sometimes visible and from halfway through immediately nearby. For me the most beautiful section was between Gifhorn and Rethem: Lower Saxony horse country, beautiful villages and houses, lovingly designed gardens, pine forests. Towards the end, the Weser becomes a stream, also imposing.
      Also yes and: I am and will remain a country bumpkin: cycling in bigger cities stresses me out.
