      Once again 8 degrees air temperature, no wind - felt at least 10 degrees. What a weather. What a great end to the 2019 cycling season.What a great annual balance 2019: 1261 kilometers by bike in just 59 hours. It can stay that way or get even better. We'll see what is possible in 2020.Thank you for all of your “likes” and your kind comments. I wish you a happy new bike season 2020 and a good trip at all times.Greetings from Texel

      1 degree air temperature, felt minus 2 degrees. At first light cloud cover with fog. Later the sun broke through the clouds. Light south / southeast wind.With an additional layer of clothing (vest), this tour became a pleasant warm bike ride. So cycling is really fun even in winter.The round went over the northern tip of Texel, mostly on well-developed paths in front of and behind the dikes. The way back was via agricultural roads, where there is hardly any traffic at this time of year.

      Eight degrees air temperature - felt 5-6 degrees, moderate north-west wind, cloud mix with many sun sections. In addition, a mix of suitable bike and ski clothing. This makes cycling on Texel fun on Christmas Day.It was a wonderful tour again. The fun factor was accordingly high. Texel rocks!

      Pleasant 8 degrees air temperature, little wind and sunshine. In addition, a time window of almost two hours. And that on December 21st. You just have to ride your bike. Great short round with a powerful fun factor. It can stay that way from me.

      Moderate to strong northeast wind, 5 degrees air temperature - felt zero degrees. Sun and blue sky and a lot of desire for cycling. I just had to leave again.The round therefore ran along the canal, via Volksdorf to Barendorf and back along the canal back to the starting point. Although it was quite fresh, the tour was a lot of fun.

      Today's round was at fresh 8 degrees air temperature and a beautiful blue sky over the Ilmenauradweg to the Elbe to Hoopte. In Hoopte there was at the ferry then once a delicious Matjesbrötchen. Then we went by ferry to the other side of the Elbe and from there direction Geesthacht. Then continue along the Elbe to Artlenburg and Brietlingen back to Lüneburg.It was a very nice round. However, due to the fresh autumn temperatures and the time change, these long tours are quite exhausting. That's why it was the last big round for this year. For the rest of the year, smaller tours have to be enough.

      The weather forecast had predicted a large rain area. From there, there was only a time window from sunrise to about 12:30 clock for a bike ride.
      For this reason, I drove towards 8:00 clock in the direction of Bleckede. From there it went over with the Elbe ferry and from there on to Boitzenburg.

      Today we finally went to the mushroom search in the forest again. We found porcini mushrooms and chestnuts. A remnant of a fat hen was still visible. That gives hope for a better year for mushrooms.It was frightening how few insects flew through the forest and how few spider webs were present. Here, too, you notice how the climate in the forest is changing and the insects are no longer so numerous.Otherwise it was very nice. The peace in the forest is always impressive.

      The small sewer tour today went via Wendisch Evern to Scharnebeck and back to Lüneburg. The weather was fresh due to the 12 degree air temperature and there was no rain. So this little round was fun again.

      This tour went today mostly on paths of the Lüneburg Landwehr, through forest areas and, last but not least, through the city center. At a pleasant 16 degrees and dry weather it was really autumnal. Was fun. There are no photos this time.

About Cord

Gerne fahre ich auf befestigten Wegen entlang von Flüssen, durch Marschland und am Meer entlang. Gerne überall dort, wo nicht der nervige Straßenverkehr verläuft. Mein absolutes Highlight zum Radfahren ist derzeit die Holländische Insel Texel. Die Gelassenheit der Niederländer, die vielen Wege und Straßen und ein fast perfektes ausgeschildertes Radwegenetz macht, neben der beeindruckenden Landschaft, Lust auf Radfahren.In der Fotografie verwende ich hauptsächlich eine Spiegelreflex Kamera. Bei meinen Fotos lege ich sehr viel Wert auf Schärfe, Belichtung und einen geraden Horizont. Im Weitwinkelbereich verwende ich eine Brennweite bis 10mm und im Telebereich bis 300mm. Selbstverständlich verwende ich zur Ergänzung auch meine Handykamera.
