About Günter Bertling

Alltags- und Freizeiradler mit anfallsweise moderat sportlichen Ambitionen auf MTB und Rennrad.Ein Gazelle Reisetrekkingrad, ein Trek OCLV Hardtail, ein Pogliaghi Rennrad mit mittlerweile exotischer Suntour Superbe Pro Ausstattung, alle aus den 90-er Jahren, sowie ein ebenfalls zum Reiserad umgerüstetes, neueres Specialized Hardrock Sport ersparen mir einen motorisierten fahrbaren Untersatz.Müsste im Laufe der Jahre bei ca. 1,8 muskelgetriebenen Erdumrundungen angekommen sein.Fotos bis Aug. 2017 überwiegend mit meinem alten Galaxy S2 plus seither ist ein Galaxy XCover 4 im Einsatz, und, weil auf beiden Geräten die Bilder im Original etwas flau sind und natürlich weil es Spaß macht, nachbearbeitet mit Snapseed.Ganz nebenbei ist Komoot für mein Verständnis von Fotografieren im Rahmen sozialer Medien auch noch das bessere 'Instagram'.Ach so, und sobald eine größere Nähe von Komoot zu Google oder Facebook und Konsorten sichtbar wird, oder gar ein Verkauf an einen der Giganten im Raume stünde, bin ich hier wieder weg.

      ... this is how the course should stay now and when the opportunity arises, it should finally be tackled early in the morning. Good rhythm on different surfaces and inclines, but with heavy legs from the long working day, some of the climbs are just about manageable for older people. Today at the end a little foretaste of the upcoming rainy weather.

      With somewhat tired legs, we continued to work on the "morning" tour.First it goes down to the lowest point in the "valley" of the Lutter, then the route meanders in several steps up to the Teutos ridge. In between, there is a section of smooth asphalt on the transfer route towards Stieghorst for warm rolling. From the highest point at Eiserner Anton, the bike crashes towards Senne, not without making an additional loop through the undergrowth after a few hundred meters. Togdrang and side trails are quite sandy in dry conditions and accordingly slippery and strenuous to ride. But why are we going if not to make a real effort. Shortly after the tram terminus, it's really fun uphill again over trails and forest paths until you reach Waterbör at some point. There we orient ourselves to the left in the direction of Brackwede / Bethel. After a short fall, an ascent and descent over the small "foothills" at the Brackwede waterworks and once more up the porch or the Höchte to surrender to the final descent towards Betheleck. Not far and in the old town there is the possibility to reward yourself with an ice cream or coffee. Alternatively, we continue towards the starting point of the tour at the city clinic, where there is also food in the backyard ice cream parlor, which I used today.

      More gradients, more bumpy ground, a little slower.In the search for additional sections with "gravel" characteristics, I am getting closer and closer to the ideal short distance in the close range.Unfortunately, I cannot invite my friends to this type of tour or they would no longer be my friends afterwards.

      Senile bed escape is quite present every now and then, which would be time for a tour in the morning. However, it's just too cold in the morning to be able to overcome one's weaker self. So for the time being, the so-called morning lap has to be driven in the evening.

      All of which doesn’t do anything for a young person who has just had an operation and his medical care. Hopefully the knee will hold better again in the future after the third operation. (Oh, it's really not my knee, but that of a young convalescent from the family for whom I ran some errands)The GPS seems to have been slightly drunk today during the quick back-and-forth cucumbering, just as wrong as my Komoot slime trail appears compared to the actual course of the road.

      30-year-old Trek 8000 converted into a gravel MTB for use in winter. Drive 1 x 9 gears, is fun, even if pedaling is over at a little over 30 km / h. Still faster than with the help of an e-bike. The fun is so great that, despite the lack of snow, I still haven't put the bike aside. But it will happen soon because it is more comfortable with suspension on routes like today.

      "(morning)" because drove in the afternoon, but the tour is planned to serve as a training route in the morning in the event of senile bed escape, combined with the ulterior motive of collecting as many vertical meters as possible over a relatively short distance.

      ... after work and before the sun has completely lost its warming power for today, I quickly earned a little ice cream.

      Willful "waste" of a rail bonus voucher on the last day of its validity. Due to the corona, I haven't been traveling by train for a long time, so today was the last, somewhat limited option to go on an excursion in summer temperatures and be transported back for lukewarm.
