Draußen unterwegs – mal sportlich, mal entspannt. Für die sportliche Herausforderung das Rennrad, für die Reichweite das Tourenrad und das CC-MTB für’s besonders intensive Naturerlebnis. Eine Tour ohne Berge ist nicht komplett, das Heimatrevier Schwarzwald bietet dafür zum Glück viel Gelegenheit. Im Urlaub zieht es mich nicht selten in die Alpen. Hier wie dort ist auch Wandern und moderates Bergsteigen herrlich.
Damit dies auch in Zukunft so bleibt – Respect the mountains, respect nature – leave no trace!
Thanks to summer time, the sun is now setting very late in a sport-friendly manner. So you can finally do a "real" tour even after the compulsory part of the day - very pleasant. On the other hand, the temperature was not that pleasant, especially up in the mountains - even gloves would not have hurt on the descent ...

The traditional Maiwecken in Breisgau has to be canceled this year as well. Usually the local music clubs move through the villages at sunrise on May 1st, bringing brass music to the ears. This includes, of course, that those awakened provide the musicians with breakfast and spirits ☺.
But there is nothing against a solo bike tour at a similar time, even in Corona times - on the contrary, you have the streets very exclusive, especially of course when the weather is not as ideal as it is today. So I didn't come across another vehicle between Elzach and Siegelau - you could only wish a few hikers a good morning.

A spring day out of a picture book, a wonderful route and a few newly discovered kilometers - the Black Forest always offers something new even after many 10,000 kilometers! I can only recommend the route from Herrenschwand down to the Mambacher Tal and back up to Gresgen and over to the small Wiesental near Tegernau to anyone who is in the area - you have to look for more beautiful racing bike routes!

Today only a small detour to the beautiful Zastlertal - up to the Rinken it would probably still need snow chains ...
Quite refreshing NE wind today - you can easily save three quarters of a kilo, because you can safely leave your drinking bottle at home on such a short tour.

Frederik Böna is trying his hand at a double Everesting on the Kandel this Saturday - 20x from Waldkirch to the summit! It all started at 9 a.m. this morning and the goal is a time of less than 24 hours (see also Badische Zeitung and SWR TV).
So I was curious how it would work - the answer is astonishingly unspectacular! Just a very subtle reference to the action with street chalk on the roadway at the entrance, two small sponsor flags - nothing more!
I met the master himself almost exactly halfway through my ascent on the descent - on his 3rd or 4th lap - and I was too slow with the camera.
Hopefully the weather will last through the night, because rain-soaked descents in the dark with the known modest condition of the road are not needed in addition to the very ambitious goal.The whole thing also serves a good cause, see here:

Although the Black Forest is not yet in an optimal condition, there is still cold snow lying around everywhere, which has delayed the melting, but the promised warmer weather lured the heights back to the heights.
And even if the sun was a little hesitant at the beginning, there was later a wonderful blue sky, which admittedly contrasts well with the snow-white.
And since the roads were dry and the sun was warm, it turned out to be a very pleasant tour. However, there is no way to stop for a cappuccino or a delicious piece of cake. ToGo is not a real replacement .....
