      I actually designed the tour as a cozy beer garden tour for forest trail cruising.
      Conclusion: I only knew the trails between Gestratz and Eglofstal / Malleichen from the map, and if it poured the night before, it gets tricky.
      The absolute highlight was the S2 trail above the Osterwald, unfortunately I had to go uphill where pushing was sometimes inevitable.
      Cozy sausage salad break in "Ochs am Berg", simply because you can do it again.
      The Baobobel is almost impassable at the end, the full recycler above, intensive vegetation below combined with swampy terrain.
      Still a tour that was really fun.

      Today in dream weather with Mr. & Ms. Conway headed for the Upper Swabian Taiga.
      From Wilhelmsdorf we first climbed to Illmensee with a good gradient, from there we took the trails to Judentenberg and then across the Pfrunger Ried.
      The paths in the Ried could only be driven today with an extremely defensive driving style, so as not to get any stress with hikers.
      Overall, very varied, interesting height profile and finally a cyclist in W-Dorf, after the table neighbors expressed concerns in the reed industry that our e-bikes could be infectious if they were at a distance of 1.5m.

      Today in good weather the chilled hike with the "little ones" from Buchenegg
      the Buchenegg waterfalls and then over the alpine pastures along the Weißach.
      The alpine pastures unfortunately still closed, from time to time drinks sales to go

      After the rain is before the rain, which is announced for next week ... so go quickly and make the long-planned tour to Wurzacher Ried.
      The reed itself is mostly reserved for the hiking people, but I admit it, I took the wrong turn a few times.
      Otherwise, the trails were relatively "goatschig" (for Tanja: it goesat when the ground smacked) and the roots were a bit greasy, but still good to drive😉
      ... and now there is a barbecue 😊

      After nothing went yesterday due to a headache, today I went to Bad Waldsee with a little "gourmet" to the Saubadtrail.
      As before, an extremely large number of people in the forests and in Bad Waldsee on the city lake, the executive had to do a lot to enforce the distance regulation.
      Some fine trails, lots of forest highway ... makes a very good cut.
      The Saubadtrail was, however, only slightly torn for sightseeing purposes, time was missing for more ... but a reunion is guaranteed.

      Today I had massive problems with dust etc. on the contact lenses due to the very dry trails and forest paths.
      As nice as the dry trails are to ride, the sports glasses cannot close tight enough.
      Otherwise, a lot of tried and tested and a bit new today, such as the small downhill run "body & soul" behind the fields lake, for which I made an extra loop. Was worth it. 😋

      aka "Helmuts Hirschgehege reloaded"
      Traily quick tour to start the weekend.
      The trails between Fenken and Lauratal are among the finest that you can ride in the Ravensburg area.
      Accordingly, there can be some traffic and there are also hikers.

      Today, with sunshine and dry trails, the somewhat larger tour with plenty of panoramic views of the Allgäu Alps.
      A few small, fine trails, in between the Ratzenried castle ruins and many economic routes through the Allgäu hills.
      Planning the S2 trail from the highway to Ratzenried station uphill was definitely a bit of a blunder.

About beardman

Ich bevorzuge die Trails im oberschwäbischen Hinterland und weniger die alpinen Wege, Touren mit mind. 50% offroad-Anteil, fahre gerne S0 und auch mal ne S1, darüber hinaus hängts von der Tagesform und dem Wetter ab.
Da ich auch gerne fotografiere, im Normalfall mit einer DSLR Canon EOS 7D und 650D, bin ich bei meinen Touren immer etwas im Zwiespalt bei der Qualität der Handyfotos.
Meine drei Leidenschaften Fotografieren, meine La Pavoni Espresso Maschine und das Biken haben eins gemeinsam, das Streben nach dem perfekten "shot".
