After a sumptuous brunch in Glonn and a short visit to the Hermannsdorfer Christmas market, I make off ... The wheel is still in the car yesterday.
The weather is fantastic, you can see far into the mountains and the temperatures are unusually mild.
Only the full stomach bothers something, it takes me until I am properly in motion. With food, it's enough for today!

In Ruhpolding was slaughtered, and we want to pick up our part of the cow. Actually, I had planned nothing because of the weather report, but in the morning, the sky keeps breaking ... Since my wife does not notice my feverish eyes immediately, I have to ask directly. Sighing, she surrenders to her fate. 😅
And I have huge luck, not only the weather holds; the steady westerly wind blows my back and carries me forward.
The route is pragmatically short, unfortunately with relatively many bike paths between the villages.

Actually, today was a break planned, but a family member was stranded in the commuter train chaos and needed a bike in Grafing station ... Well, let me just persuade, push the bike in driving from Grafing City over and then go on a short round.
It was very sunny again, but cold. Today, however, the roads were sometimes wet (probably thawed frost from the trees), and when turning on the road from Oberpframmern towards Unterlaus (actually a big road) there was a moment of shock, when I noticed that not only wet, but also was frozen ... quickly released the front brake and out of the curve, instead straight on towards the roadside; not a moment too early, the front wheel had already made a small slip ... With the rear brake I just came to stand on the road.
From there increased caution, and luckily the descent to Unterlaus was dry, before I had had jitters.
Exactly tomorrow, a year ago, it had put me down, with the following compulsory break, and I made it clear that this will not happen!

Radlfahrer war ich "schon immer"; ab 1983 bin ich als Radtourist in aller Welt unterwegs gewesen, mit dem Höhepunkt einer Art Weltumradelung 1988-1989 (USA, Australien, Neuseeland, Griechenland, Jugoslawien).
Nach Studium und Kindern war Schluss mit der Rumtreiberei, aber seit 2006 habe ich das Rennrad als Möglichkeit entdeckt, herumzukommen. 2-4 Touren in der Woche sind drin, häufig die gleichen, aber gelegentlich entdecke ich doch mal neue Varianten hier im Südosten Münchens.
