Actually, we wanted to go to the alpacas on the plate and then via Spielberg and the Hasennest via the small Spessart trail back to Wächtersbach.
By chance I discovered a birch mushroom among the four spruce trees, which aroused the "hunting instinct" and instead of biking through the forest, running through the forest and looking for mushrooms was the order of the day. It was enough for a small side dish 😋

Brrr, it's fresh at home when you're catapulted from 26 degrees of sun straight into autumn.
I definitely prefer warmer 😎
Bertawege meanwhile very wet and softened again, the roots slippery.
Unfortunately, large-scale construction work with heavy equipment is in progress on the forest paths in the BSS Forst, so the paths look correspondingly modest 😣
Will first avoid the Bertawege for the rest of the year so that they can regenerate and the construction work is finished.
We briefly visited Panorama Round No. 8, through the Kinzigauen to Esso, to free the bikes from the mud and dust that we brought with us from Istria 🙂
Keep on riding and happy trails 🤘

Finally, once again the hill of Medulin, which has enchanted us with its beautiful view.
We have now rocked enough the hiking trails that are laid out around the hill down to the sea and said goodbye to them.
Comfortably along the coast to the ice cream dealer in the harbor 😋.
Tomorrow the bikes will be clean and ready for the trip home on Tuesday.
Goodbye Istria see you soon 🙏😎

Bella Vista Labin is a very single-track circuit that starts in the old town of Labin.
The first km it goes over the main road to Bartici, from here it goes on a small side road a little further up the mountain past vineyards and olive trees.
Single trail is hip now, up and down mountains, the view is breathtaking 👌.
Through holm oak forests it goes up to the high plateau, the last 300m up the Turbo Levo SLs demand something.
Stony path to the lookout point.
Here you can see the entire Cape Kamenjak in the distance. In the other direction you can see Labin with Rabac and the Kvarner Bay, behind it is the Vojak with its 1400 m.
Simply terrific 👍
We continue on the ridge back towards Labin. The stony dirt road turns into a really cool single trail that meanders down the mountain for several kilometers.
As the strength and concentration decrease, we finish the last 4km single trail

In Lovran we found a good free parking lot a little above a beautiful beach, where we can start right away.
A little through the narrow streets past the church and then straight into the mountain.
The first 3km were good, then Komoot led us to a single trail, which we had to push up about 250 meters to the next road, from here it goes completely up to the summit of Vojak on tar road.
In some places there were ramps of 20% 😣 on average 13% approx. Our SL paced wonderfully, pedaling 1400hm on 18km.
The view rewards all the effort.
Today it was unfortunately a bit cloudy and hazy, but Opatia and the Kvarner Bay were in the most beautiful sunlight 👌.
It was really fresh up here before the fast descent started on clothes. 😉
We skipped the hiking trail completely, as it is very stair-heavy and our driving skills would not be sufficient to arrive safely at the bottom without falling.

We just stood in the parking lot of the 4 star hotel directly at the bike park, because the barriers were open, let's see if there is another ticket 🤔
The feeder runs upwards around the mountain in a wide arc.
Quite steep in places, but great views. Our SLs are a wonderful support going up.
The espresso trail is easy to drive S1 in a few places S2.
Pedestrians on the trails are not uncommon here, drive with foresight 😉.
Diana's bike bucked a bit in the lower area and lost a screw that we got replaced with a Shimano adapter in the park's bike shop.
Sram is just not as stable as Shimano 😂
Shimano saved the day 🤘
Over the family uphill it was very flowing up in serpentines and just as down without stones, just family-friendly.
If you want it to be demanding, you should try Line No. 14 (Dangerous / red / S2-3).
We let it go, because my stomach answered loudly. 😂
Keep riding 🤘
