About Elmi unterwegs 😎

Ich bin gerne mit dem Rad unterwegs. Wenn man jedoch so in die Jahre kommt, ist hierbei ein wenig elektrische Unterstützung schon ganz hilfreich. Mit meinem MTB-eBike von CUBE muss ich aber nicht unbedingt auf schmalen und holprigen Pfaden unterwegs sein. Um längere Strecken besser bewältigen zu können, fahre ich auch gerne mal auf gut ausgebauten Radwegen, die ich sonst nur mit meinem normalen Trekkingrad nutzen würde.
Letztlich geht es mir ja in meinem nun doch schon fortgeschrittenen Alter nicht mehr um sportliche Höchstleistungen. Entscheidend ist vielmehr, dass ich mich in freier Natur bewege und dass ich dies auch genießen kann! Und wie es sich für einen richtigen "Genussradler" gehört, findet sich auf meinen Touren meist auch immer ein schönes Plätzchen für die gemütliche Einkehr - 🍺🍦🍰☕ !
In jüngster Zeit habe ich für mich zudem das Wandern entdeckt, denn im Winter im Matsch auf Waldwegen mit dem Rad unterwegs zu sein, ist nicht mehr so mein Ding. Da radel ich dann lieber in meinem Keller, um fit zu bleiben.
Ich hätte aber nicht gedacht, dass mir mit dem Wandern auch die Entdeckung der Langsamkeit so viel Freude machen würde. Man hat mehr Zeit, die Dinge länger zu betrachten, und kann sich mit seinen Gedanken - wenn man allein unterwegs ist - intensiver befassen. Und mit dem Wandern kommt man auch im Winter wieder raus an die frische Luft und kann die Natur genießen. Wie schön, dass man sich als Ruheständler dafür die schönsten Tage aussuchen kann ... 👍😁😎😇 !

      Just quickly after yesterday's rain and snow a little round up from Rheinbach to Todenfeld to fetch eggs! Get some fresh air! 👍😁

      I almost couldn't get a parking space today - it was so full! By 11 a.m., all parking spaces on the street and in the parking lots were already occupied. The weather was obviously just too nice, so that a lot of people had the same idea as me. Well, the season and the weather were ideal for a hike on the Daffodil Trail. Fortunately, I found a parking space for myself up on the mountain on the edge of a tractor path, which wasn't that far away from the actual daffodil path. And of course there was a lot going on - in the middle of the week!
      The Daffodil Trail really does pass some beautiful fields with blooming daffodils. That's nice to look at. The dark fir forest up there with its dark green mossy background is also beautiful. It's great how the light of the sun breaks in the forest. Otherwise, the circular route does not offer much variety. The 9 km were enough for me. On the way back to the car I simply deviated from the path and took the shortcut straight up the mountain and over the steep meadow to the car - you don't necessarily have to do it! 😁😂😇

      Well, that was pretty cross-country today! Sometimes the road, sometimes the path, sometimes the beaten path! Unfortunately there was construction work everywhere in Bad Neuenahr, so that I had to deviate from the originally planned route along the Ahr. From Bad Neuenahr it went up the mountain to the airfield, which has a nice little café, where you can certainly sit very nicely. Today on Monday it was of course closed! For the summer, however, I've already decided to do it again as a destination - if CORONA allows it! So there was coffee and cake in Berkum at Café Gilgens - on a concrete block at the edge of the parking lot! You just have to be able to improvise ... 😄 I really liked the route back to Rheinbach via Meckenheim through the forest, along the motorway and along the Swist! I will definitely drive there more often! However, I have to say that overall today's mogul piste got really bad for me. My next bike should be a full suspension one ...?! 🙄😊

      After I finally replaced my FAG bottom bracket on my 20-year-old trekking bike with a new Shimano bottom bracket and readjusted the derailleur gears, I had to test it out right away. So my old route came in for duty in Bonn: from Rheinbach to the Kottenforst train station, past the Jägerhäuschen and then along Professorenweg to Godesberg - back up Annaberger Straße and then past the Waldau. Unfortunately, the forest path was closed behind Röttgen in the Kottenforst, so that I had to drive a rather unsightly stretch directly on the motorway! Otherwise it was a nice little round. However, I was impressed that my strength is now a little less, because up the hill on Annaberger Straße, I had to push! 🤪 Ten years ago you could go up the mountain without dismounting! 😤👍🏆 Well, maybe you soften up a bit over time, once you have enjoyed the advantages of an eBike for a few years ...?! 🙄😆

      Well, that really seems to be a very well-known and popular excursion destination! I haven't met so many people on any of my hikes! Under CORONA conditions it was sometimes a bit annoying because somehow you always had to meet most of the people in the particularly tight places! But overall it was really an impressive tour today. I have never seen such beautiful rock formations before! The way is simply rewarding, as soon as you are around a rock, you are faced with another fascinating sight! Just beautiful! The pictures can't really reflect that! Great!

      Today was a tour for me without any particular highlights, because I actually know the places along the route very well and so I knew what to expect. What was new for me, however, was the cycle path along the motorway past Meckenheim and I have to say that this is really a very nice route. Otherwise, by and large, the tour can be classified as a pure bike tour. Except for a few short sections, where it went off the asphalt and a little bit of MTB feeling arose. All in all, this is a nice and varied route - for the long ascent out of the Rhine Valley, of course, the support from the engine was very helpful! 👍😁😇

      It's always nice to see what great suggestions I get from KOMOOT for my own tours! I only discovered this tour a few days ago at KOMOOT! I didn't go all the way, yesterday morning it was somehow too cold on the mountains for me, because a really cold wind was blowing on the heights, but I think I saw the most beautiful places for me. I found the rock formations of the Marxe Ley and the Rauhbuur particularly impressive. But the path itself is also great. Not only do you see brightly painted nest boxes on the way, the views of the Maifeld are simply stunning! A great tour!

      Well, actually my bike shouldn't get that dirty ... I didn't really want to ride through the mud, so I had chosen a short route for the first tour this year, where I actually thought that the paths were mostly paved and be dry. Unfortunately that didn't quite come true: the way from Hilberath to Gelsdorf was pretty muddy! But what do you ride an eMTB for? I just had to go through that! No matter!
      That was a nice little tour today with wonderful weather and pleasant temperatures, only the strong wind from the west on the heights was a bit disturbing! In any case, that made you want more!

      Today we went back to fetching eggs on well-known paths up the mountain to Todenfeld. The route there was easy to walk despite the nocturnal rain, but the way back was on snow and ice and then actually only further down the mountain in the mud. Overall, a decent march as the first tour of the new year!
