About Paul

Ich bin gerne draussen - am liebsten mit einem meiner Fahrräder: Gravelbike, Mountainbike, auf Mehrtagestouren mit dem Tourenbike - oder mit meiner Frau auf dem Tandem.
Alle meine Fahrräder fahren ohne Strom mit Bio-Power :-)

Höhepunkte sind meine Radreisen von Malmö zum Nordkapp (2011), durch Frankreich (2012 und 2013), der norwegischen Küste entlang (2014) oder kreuz und quer durch Island (2016, die erste hier in Komoot gespeicherte Radreise), von Apulien nach Hause am Bodensee (2018) und schliesslich von Hamburg aus halb um Deutschland herum ebenfalls bis nach Hause (2020).

      Today we start again with the tandem. As far as Bussnang (almost half of the route) we drove on the same route as I alone a week ago in continuous rain. The pictures actually became much more colorful today 😉.
      From Bussnang to Fischingen we followed the cycle route no. 41 "Pilgrim route". This section is beautiful! Very rural, leads across the busy valleys over lovely hills and beautiful agricultural area. Highly recommended. From Fischingen the only climb worth mentioning.
      All in all, a route and area that we will ride again!
      Tandem is fun!

      Today a wonderful lap was chosen and driven. The weather report was uncertain ... It started to rain right on the descent, I had to put on my rain gear a few hundred meters after the start. Then it rained with interruptions all day. But often only heavy drizzle drizzling everywhere, which I have otherwise experienced especially in Norway. Well, the landscape was still beautiful. The photos are mostly brutally defaced by the water on the lens ... sorry! The rain had its good side too: the streets were practically empty - soo cool!
      Route: Wittenbach - Weinfelden - Weiningen b. Warth (lunch) - Stein am Rhein - Kreuzlingen - Romanshorn. There I took the train because I had seen enough rain now and didn't want to do the last climb.

      Saturday tour with the tandem up to the Appenzellerland and then flat down the Rhine valley, along the lake and finally back up home.
      The Ruppenpass is always beautiful anyway and the Rhine Valley is a pleasure at this time of the year.
      Back in the restaurant for the first time ... an event!

      At the end of the holiday, a rather crisp round in a neighboring valley of the Val Müstair: From the village of Müstair down to Laatsch, then via Schleis to Schlinig (the ascent is really crisp!), To the inner Alm. Return because of the beautiful views over the road to Burgeis. Then enjoyed the super cycle path section Burgeis - Glurns. Visited the medieval town of Glurns with practically no tourists. At the end back up to Müstair. Me with MTB bio, my companion with an e-bike.This week with hikes and bike rides in Val Müstair on the southeast corner of Switzerland was a lot of fun. We were happy about the mountain spring, endured the changeable weather well, planned our tours again and again around rain showers and snow showers and marveled at the mighty mountains every day.

      Nice hike from Tschierv to Müstair. Unlike a few days ago, this time not along the river Rome, but on the mountain flank. A cold front went through the area last night. So from 1900 m above sea level there was snow and there was a cool wind ... It's not until May 19th 😊
      On the descent we experienced more spring with every meter - simply beautiful.

      A few days before the Umbrail Pass really opens, we have already climbed up there. We had inquired beforehand about dangers and such ... Wonderful trip without cars, without noisy motorcycles - only us (except for two or three construction workers) on the route. Quiet: birds, streams, lots of marmots enjoying the sun on the street and feeling disturbed by us ... Best road conditions: the snow has apparently been cleared for a while, the road is dry and mostly free of gravel and gravel. Of course there is still a lot of snow at the top. The summer ski area on the Stelvio is also currently being prepared. Soon the pass will be opened to everyone. It was super nice!Me with bio-drive, my companion with an e-bike.
