About Haibike Fahrer

Der Ruhestand und die Corona Pandemie haben es begünstigt, daß ich mehr Zeit und Lust habe, unser Land mit dem Fahrrad zu erkunden. Ich bevorzuge längere Strecken und auch Touren über mehrere Tage.
Dabei habe ich sehr gute Erfahrungen gemacht, sehr viel Neues in vermeintlich bekannten Gegenden kennen- und unsere Heimat schätzen gelernt. Wir leben in einem wunderbaren Land!
Ich bin elektrisch unterwegs mit einem voll gefederten 2014er Haibike FS Duro Pro, und einem halb gefederten 2020er Centurion e-fire Sport Tourenrad mit zwei Batterien für besonders lange Strecken.
2020: 7020km, 69280 HM, 134 Touren

      Very nice little tour to Constance.The Reichenau lives from growing vegetables and from tourists. The short drive to Constance is done quickly. The cathedral, the old town and the harbor are recommended there, although they tend to be overcrowded.
      The Council of Constance acquired historical significance from 1414 to 1418 after the division of the church with at times three popes (Rome, Pisa, Avignon) ended. Despite promised safe conduct, Jan Hus, who wanted to reform the church, was burned.
      Highlight on the way back: Church of St. George on the Reichenau.

      A must for gardening enthusiasts: The Mainau.
      Very varied, there is something for everyone.
      Very nice old trees.
      Easily accessible by bike through long avenues.
      Significant admission prices, but well worth the money.
      Several catering options.
      Very much in demand at the weekend.

      Actually, we only wanted to do a small tour of the island on the day of our arrival. By chance we came across an art historian in front of the Minster St.Maria and Markus, who was going on a tour. We got involved and it was very worth it.The whole of Reichenau is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and rightly so. The minster is the core element at a central point on the island.
      The minster has existed since around 724 AD, originally founded by Pirmin. The building itself has grown and expanded organically over many centuries.
      After it was founded, it has developed into a central monastery educational institution. Not only future abbots were trained here, nobles also received training there, today one would say: in public administration. From there they moved to all corners of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, as clergymen or as administrative officials.
      Together they formed the backbone of the empire of Charlemagne, which at that time stretched from Aachen to beyond Rome.
      Her writing room (scriptorium under the treasury) was known for its high quality work. It was not only written for own purposes, many commissioned works were also carried out for rulers all over Europe (Gospels, sheet music, codices).
      Much of what we know about this early period we only know because so much was written there,
      was distributed and preserved throughout Europe. Historical evidence of inestimable value.
      The turning point (before the birth of Christ / after the birth of Christ) was invented on the Reichenau.
      For many centuries the Reichenau monastery was of paramount importance, which is why it is also known as the "cradle of occidental culture".
      A guided tour is highly recommended:

      Three rivers have their source in the Aalen area on the Eastern Alb:
      Kocher, Jagst and Brenz. Kocher and Jagst were already there (komoot.de/collection/998263/-der-neckar-und-seine-zufluesse?page=2) today as an addition to the Brenz.
      The Brenzquelle is very close to the Kocherquelle,
      in between lies the European watershed.
      Brenz -> Danube -> Black Sea
      Kocher -> Neckar -> Rhine -> North Sea.
      The Brenz is approx. 52 km long, with a difference in altitude between the source and its mouth in the Danube of 77 m, i.e. it flows very slowly. Advantage: no inclines or slopes.
      Three things, in my opinion, are remarkable about this tour:1. By far the most beautiful section is the Eselsburger Tal. The Brenz makes a loop where the small village Eselsburg (very good farm shop) is located.
      Hardly any cars, untouched natural landscape and ideal for a short break.
      2. After Gingen the valley widens, the bike path is
      again closer to the river on car-free roads.
      Gundelfingen on the Danube has a special Upper Austrian character.
      3. You have to stop through the heavily industrialized cities of Heidenheim and partly also Gingen.
      You cross the Württembergisch - Bavarian border unnoticed, you can tell it from the white and blue diamonds and the better developed outdoor catering :-).
      Was a nice comeback after a knee injury. All paths are good or very easy to drive, the signs are good, there are also informative information boards about nature and the landscape.

      Today not on the Alb, but in the Black Forest.Freudenstadt is a good starting or finishing point because numerous "Black Forest ...." cycle paths start from there.
      Freudenstadt is also very easy to reach by train.
      Today: Schwarzwald Höhenradweg Mitte.
      The path runs relatively evenly up on the heights of the northern Black Forest, a Black Forest high road for bicycles, so to speak.
      About 90% are in the forest, in between there are always (10%) open sections with beautiful views into the distance. Especially now at the end of May with all the young green a special feast for the eyes.
      Almost all of the trails are easy-to-drive forest roads, in between there are a few smaller sections on little-traveled district roads.
      You can only get through a few small villages,
      today we practically had the Black Forest to ourselves.
      So much for today, somehow it was exhausting for me. Return by train from Pforzheim via Karlsruhe.If you want more tours through the Black Forest:

      Today everything was there again:- narrow, enchanted gorges
      - extensive Alb heights
      - an old castle with fantastic views
      - great runs on small streams and lakes
      - Half-timbered par excellence
      For today we had planned:
      60km, a lot of quiet, car-free landscape and 1000m altitude.
      I had set the beginning of the tour in such a way that the main climbs could be tackled as early as possible.
      From Urach up the Erms with not too steep inclines away from the road. Past the Künkelesmühle and a pond where everyone can fish. MTB tires are an advantage, but not a requirement.
      The ascent to the Alb from Seeburg through the Trailfinger Gorge is really great. The valley is getting narrower, the rocks are getting closer and you are reminded of the stories of Rulaman.
      After the Trailfinger Backhaus there is another short uphill climb, then Münsingen, the former district town in front of one. The market square, the square in front of the town hall
      (with e-bike charging station) and various small restaurants invite you to linger. Also the Martinskirche.
      Via Auingen we went past the old military cinema via the former military training area.
      There is a large visitor center at the old warehouse.
      The freedom from cars, the vastness of the landscape and the tranquility that this place exudes are impressive.
      If you are lucky you will come across a flock of sheep.
      It is important that you always stay on the signposted paths because remnants of ordnance are still suspected.
      Rediscovered (thanks to komoot) the church in Böhringen.
      Countless times we have passed on the B28 without paying attention to it.
      A family was in the process of decorating the church for a wedding the following day. Small reminiscences of similar personal experiences.
      Not only was the glider airfield in Grabenstetten busy, but the closer we got to Hohenneuffen, we discovered numerous paragliders,
      who knew how to use the updrafts on the night eaves.
      Absolute highlight of today's tour:
      The Hohenneuffen!
      The view in all directions is easy
      breathtaking: you can see far north towards Stuttgart, west to the Reutlinger Achalm and south over the peaks of the Swabian Alb.
      Just because of the view today, this tour was particularly worth it. Pure feelings of home!
      I left the way back to Urach to komoot,
      that was a very good decision because we discovered something new! The proposal led from Hülben over the Heiligenbergweg down into the valley. To me it looks like an "Alte Hülbener Steige". Downhill with serpentines, but quite doable. Nicely located in the forest, past an old well.
      Down in the valley you will be rewarded by several dammed lakes before the path then leads completely up the valley to Urach.
      In Urach, as always, worthwhile: the market square.
      (I absolutely have to do the German half-timbered street: Calw, Herrenberg, Tübingen, Urach).
      My godfather (born 1919) told me about the well in Urach that he watered his horses here in 1938 as a conscript (horse artillery). We went to the military training area in Münsingen. Then in 1939 the Second World War began. In 1950 he came back from Russian captivity. Half of his comrades died in the war, of the other half one out of 13 soldiers survived captivity. He was the one.
      These days it will mark the 76th anniversary of the end of the war.
      I hope we all appreciate peace enough.
      Summary: A day with good weather, full of impressions in a very beautiful landscape with unique views, a glimpse into our history, a day that is rare in a cyclist's life.You can find more of my tours on the Alb here:

      Today after a long break (finally) another tour by bike: Herrenberg - Weil der Stadt circuit.The first part is quite hilly, on the eastern edge of the Black Forest the path leads largely car-free through forests and fields.The old road down to Calw Stammheim is currently being completely freshly built (May 2021). You come through the gravel road, but only because it was a public holiday today and the construction work was suspended. During the week, conflicts with construction activities can be expected.
      There were no signs for cyclists going downhill,
      uphill there was an inconspicuous sign.
      Because the city (S-Bahn connection) is probably even more worthwhile after the redesign of the market square has been completed. Home of Johannes Kepler and Johannes Brenz.I have two particularly beautiful routes as highlights
      1. From the L1362 via Sulz and Validlingen to Stammheim. Car-free idyllic valley, mostly slightly sloping.
      2. From Schafhausen to Ehningen along the Würm.
      Also away from the main road, easy to drive.

      Today finally the continuation of the cycle path along the Isar; This section has miscellaneous:
      - Driving on the federal highway 307
      - Driving on the cycle path accompanying a "state road" (i.e. car noise)
      - Undisturbed stretches in the Isar floodplains
      - The course of the river is shaped by the large amounts of gravel that is deposited everywhere
      - after Oberfischbach to Geretsried the path leads away from the Isar; to compensate you will always be
      rewarded by great views to the south of the mountains.
      - Nowhere is the sky bluer, the meadows more lush and the mountains more beautiful than here.
      - closer to Munich, the Isar is heavily canalized and no longer natural
      The drive through the southern suburbs of Munich is less exciting, you can see (Grünwald) where a lot of money is gathered in the greater Munich area.For me the highlights of this tour:- The Sylvenstein reservoir (motorcycle and bicycle meeting point)
      - Bad Tölz with its lovely city center
      The tour was on one of the first warm and sunny
      Sundays. There is certainly less going on on weekdays.
      It's easier with a mountain bike than with a touring bike.
