      I am currently sitting on my balcony and curing a cold of some kind. Fortunately, I found the new "Rennrad" magazine in my mailbox today. When reading the article about the bike marathon in the Dolomites "Maratona dles Dolomites", the following quote made me think of my tour in the Harz Mountains: "I don't want to see the single-digit speeds and the double-digit gradients [...]" reports the author and participants. The same thing happened to me on the driveway to the Hanskühnenburg. On the last 2 kilometers before the summit at 811 m above sea level, the inclines are only in double digits. The bike computer shows at least 12%. 17, 18 and even 20% are also displayed on the "last meters". And not with a lightweight bike. According to the manufacturer, my trekking bike weighs 14.1 kg.The climb begins in Osterrode. From there it goes steadily uphill. Shortly after leaving the city and before Lonau you will be greeted by the wood-carved sign: "Welcome to the Harz National Park". At that point in time, the incline fluctuates between approximately 2% and 4%. However, shortly after Lonau on the asphalted farm road up to the mountain summit, it rises more and more and is more between 7% and 12% before the last, quite demanding 2 km.A Pinion gearbox on my bike provides the right gear ratio. The transmission has 18 evenly graded gears, each with 10% jumps without overlapping and a gear ratio range of 636%. (This is how it looks with the pinion calculator: Not once with fully packed travel bags and over 20 kg extra weight in the Allgäu a gear lower than the 6th was necessary. In Hamburg and the surrounding area, the 8th is more than enough to start off and then it goes very quickly up to the 15th or 16th. But on the last kilometers of the driveway to Hanskühnenburg, the gear ratios between 4th and 2nd gear were required, cadence between 70 and 80, the speed between 4 and 8 km / h. Now I know what mountain passages are and what they are good for!Oh yes, there is a little warm-up on this tour. The ascent to the picturesque village of Daugavpils also has a lot to offer in terms of altitude.Speaking of warm-up. The weather wasn't really nice that day. Only a cool 12 ° C at the starting point in Hattorf am Harz. In the damp fog, which turned into a drizzle over the last few kilometers to the summit of the Hanskühnenburg, it was getting cooler. When we reached the summit, the thermometer only showed 4.7 ° C. On the descent, I wished that I had the right gloves with me. Because the speed on the descent is high. You hardly move, except for the occasional use of the brake lever. By the way, it goes down the same way as up. Anyone who has an off-road bike can definitely choose one of the other routes. It wasn't an option for me.On the Hanskühnenburg there is a hut where you can strengthen yourself and get something to drink. I was up quite early and just after 9 a.m. I was alone. The hut seemed to be closed at the time.It was a very interesting experience for me and also a special challenge. I will tackle this tour again at the next opportunity. Or alternatively the ascent to the Brocken.
