Away from the bathing circuit. I stole the route from a winter rally to Ludwigsee. That also worked out very well, there was a high proportion of gravel!
Sometimes a bit cluttered, but ok. In contrast to winter, one of the paths was very weedy, so I had to cross a harvested field, which was a bit sucking. The asphalt pieces were all very little used and nice and quiet. Overall, the route was fun.

Way back from bathing at the Blue Lake. I wanted to go home quickly, and suddenly a strangely dark sky threatened. So, except for the first 5 km, only drove asphalt. That wasn't so nice between Zörbig and Oppin, but it was still possible. The way there was nicer, but the way back was faster.

Thursday steel wheel round in the south of Halle. The goal was the Wallendorfer See. In doing so, some paths were covered that I had not yet known or that I could no longer remember. I am always amazed at how much landscape is possible in the immediate vicinity of the city.
Due to the flood we got (of course) wet feet in the Elsteraue in the Gerwische area. But when do you drive through "puddles" in which fish swim? I had a lot of fun. Many thanks to the passengers and to Stefan for the beer.

Repeat tour, drove the same as last Saturday. Only I had another group with me, and I wanted to show them this corner too. And they apparently liked it too. We were lucky: no rain! But it was humid, the sweat dripped heavily. And the brakes (the insects, not the ones on the bike) were very annoying uphill. From the ground it was nice and wet, the many roots were very slippery, what fun!

Classic Thursday steel bike circuit with two guides who did not always agree on the route. Due to the vegetation-friendly weather of the last few days we unfortunately had to do without some overgrown paths. Since there was a thunderstorm shortly before our tour, it was partly slippery, which I felt directly in a narrow bend in the Küttner Busch. Danger. the Fuchsberg closes at 9 p.m. As an exception, we got two evaluation beers or shandy. I thought it was very nice to be there again.

The destination, the Blue Lake, was clear, but how to get there and back? I didn't remember the road from Oppin to Zörbig very well.
The roads across the villages were not very busy, that was fitting. A bit of terrain was also there, well. Ideal gravel roads that could be driven quickly were rare, mostly it was rougher, there were huge puddles and mud every now and then and the single trails were well overgrown. Probably you have to live with road driving when you are there. I made a virtue out of necessity and looked into the beautiful (albeit sometimes a bit monotonous) summer landscape, looked at Bitterfeld and the villages. Bitterfeld was incredibly empty (better: dead), but has many old and beautiful industrial buildings. You can also see a lot of interesting and bizarre things in the villages. Shortly before Halle I was still in the cherries, but the best were already gone.

It was warm. A bit of cooling came from the wind, unfortunately from the front and tighter than expected. The route was very badly planned by me, the sections of the terrain were too bumpy to drive quickly with full panniers (water!). Behind Helbra, the level crossing was an insurmountable construction site, which I had to bypass very widely. But I've already learned something again about how to drive better. Because the area driven through is very beautiful!

To Leißling by train, into the Wethautal, near Utenbach briefly on the sugar beet railway line, through Osterfeld to Kistritz to the Rippach spring and along Rippach. Wethau and Rippach valleys are highly recommended: a quiet but very beautiful landscape, great field and forest paths. In Teuchern there was a coffee break at the Edeka. In Poserna (the former Saxon and unprofitable saltworks), Seeum's birthplace was inspected, and Nietzsche's in Röcken. The same goes for the Gustav Adolf monument in Lützen. From Lützen we tried as best we could to follow the Elsterflossgraben to Friedensdorf. Of course we made a stop at the Wüsteneutzsch lock ruins. From Wallendorfer See we went through domestic and therefore no longer so exciting regions for us. Great weather, no rain! But north wind doesn't matter. Great tour!
