Auch wenn ich gerne Auto fahre ..... Mindestens einmal in der Woche lege ich den Weg zur Arbeit mit dem Rad zurück. Der Süden von Berlin ist meine homezone.
Ich bin nicht unbedingt ein Langtourer und Bergfahrer, aber auf los geht es los , Hauptsache frische Luft.

After a good breakfast, we make our way back to our vehicle in Torgau. With 4.5 liters of water in my panniers, I feel well equipped, my bike brother Matthias also has larger supplies.
At 22 degrees in the morning, we take off towards Meißen and roll there. The views of the Elbe and the partly rocky banks are fantastic. We find the cycle path on the right bank of the Elbe almost better here than the one on the left; there is also more gastronomic activity going on, but we are still full and "not yet" thirsty. The asphalt strip holds up well up to around Nünchritz, after which the quality of the paths decreases rapidly. Parts of the road are still worth gold. Some sections are simply impassable and actually not worth the name bike path. Long-suffering is required here. In addition, there is the scorching heat with over 40 degrees on the bike. From Riesa there is also a gastronomic shift in the shaft. We'll take a refreshment here in Promnitz Castle. The dilapidated walls are exciting and the two and four-legged residents are friendly. Have a look here: schlosspromnitz.de. We only find a few places to keep the insatiable thirst in check. We drive the last 30 kilometers like in an oven, almost all open land, no shade. The water on the bike has been at body temperature for a long time 😬. There is a short cooling off at a pebble pond near Mühlberg. Shortly before Mühlberg, a construction site blocks the way, no signposted detour, or we overlooked it. We push the bikes illegally, it's Sunday 😎. 10 km further shortly before Strehla the next construction site, here too I did not see any signposted diversion, here too we cheat our way through the closure and make it to Torgau with almost the last liquid food.
Conclusion: the landscape is great and varied, the route can be expanded. Despite the heat, it was a really nice tour where I reached my physical limit. But that also has to be the case sometimes! 😉

Today we continue up the Elbe and pass various feudal properties, the blue wonder and Pillnitz Castle and cross the Elbe just before Heidenau with the ferry and land in Birkwitz. In the course of the further journey we soon get an impression of the altitude profile and pedal leisurely upwards. We enjoy our first glimpses of the Wesenitz valley early on. Later we follow it directly on the course, it is wonderfully cool and shady here and not so brutally hot. In general, forest and open landscape alternate again and again and we enjoy the ride despite the climbs. A swim in the Wallsroda dam (water quality well 😬) refreshes us for the last few kilometers. A short tour of Radeberg is a must, of course. The path through the Dresden Heath (actually forest 😎) is a definite highlight. We intuitively chose the right direction and roll downhill for half an hour towards Dresden, which is reasonably cool. Nice tour all in all, very short passages with adrenaline rush, more for mountain bikers, gastronomically definitely expandable. But we don't want to complain. A great second tour day! 😍

Finally another multi-day tour with my bike brother Matthias. I kind of pick it off my bike while I'm driving to Torgau and we end up there in the early evening. Our apartment exudes Ostalgian charm and is - as fitting - in a house with a former carpenter's workshop. Our landlady is super nice and so we even get the prospect of an unexpected breakfast the next morning. It starts with this one. 10 € for both with fresh rolls, coffee, egg, yoghurt and more toppings than we can manage. Perfect start to the day. We start up the Elbe and basically roll to Riesa on the best asphalt. Meanwhile, the temperature rises up to 38 degrees on the bike and my water supplies melt like ice in the sun. At the end of the day I will have evaporated almost 4 liters, not counting 2 apple juice spritzers on the way. After an ice break in Riesa, the actually interesting and spectacular part to Meißen follows. Great nature, sometimes shady passages with unique views of the Elbe and its steep banks. Meißen itself is a beautiful little town with a lovely old town that we will take with us. It goes up with the panorama lift, you can take the bikes with you free of charge👍🏻. I find the rest of the trip to Dresden rather boring. Again many open spaces with brutal sunlight. We arrive in Dresden cooked and with the last grains and let the evening end near the Frauenkirche, where we also live. A nice, hot, nice day 🤩

I meet with Blackcharly today, who has prepared the route. As she already describes it well, we start “in the middle of nüscht”. We cross the really beautiful Tangermünde and follow the Elbe to Polte where we take a break at an Elbe loop. Before I continue, I have to prick a thorn out of my coat and change the hose as soon as possible. We continue on the Altmark circuit in search of coffee, ice cream, beer something ... no chance to Stendal where we find something in the old town and end the tour together. Blackcharly still carries out studies of the indigenous population and I myself continue to Arneburg and finally back to the starting point on the Elberadweg. The piece from Arneburg to Hämerten is well developed and resembles a roller coaster. The last few kilometers are a lot of fun despite tired bones. Nice day, nice tour, nice company ... everything done right. Thanks Blackcharly for planning and nice talks. 👍🏻
