      Pedelec Solingen - Corkscrew - Niederberbaghn - Duisburg-South, heavily overcast, schw.-m.SW-Wind, 14 °, 2 pics
      With S1 and S7 via SG Hbf to SG-Grünewald. There found that the good compact button was forgotten. After the first 2 photos with smartphone Dido seems too cumbersome. So photo-free, especially since there are about 800 photos in the archive anyway. With the engine geaast for the purpose of "range test". In addition, the tour is too easy, especially since about half is driven with manual automatic shutdown, vulgo> 25 km / h. No matter, just a ride. With unsprung bike you get the way quality especially on the hilly intermediate section between corkscrew and Niederbergtrasse well with :-( Will be time for the NL ....

      This is one of the two tours in the 2-day version. In the direction we are driving we will decide in Finnentrop. The 3-day versions are eliminated.

      A quick summary of the 9-day journey of Werner and Dido:
      - Werner organized the accommodations in a first-class way and provided us with "student food" on the go; Dido was "pounded" by him so far
      - Group hydraulics at its finest again; Werner always patiently at Dido's photo stops
      - Weather mixed: except on the first two days always windy and rainy
      - nevertheless Plan (see next commentary) could be implemented without 46 km of 649 km; the actual "PlanB" was never pulled!
      - Havel bike path is one of the finest river routes in DEU: good asph mostly. Development with complete HBR signposting, small-scale "river" landscape - rather a system of old arms, canals, lakes and streams
      - scenic diversity: from the river and lake landscape along the Havel and Müritz to the slightly hilly agricultural steppe with only a few wind turbines between Waren and Stralsund
      - Tourist and everyday Radel infrastructure in Meck-Pomm (except Baltic Sea and Oder-way) cruel: no standardized HBR signposting, mud, dirt roads, cat-head pavement, narrow jambs, steep ramps, many "cyclists dismount" signs
      - Lonely and pub-free between Burg and Brandenburg as well as between Waren and Stralsund
      - some rustic charm in the restaurant: "No" - "Ham wa nich"
      So another big journey came to an end. Thank you Werner!
      Photos "because of the fast" times without description.

      MD-Stralsund # 8-Waren-Demmin, 59 Photos, heavily overcast, a shiver, m. WSW wind, 15 °
      Today, the change from the Müritz lake landscape to the Baltic Sea (north) in the hilly agricultural land with a few ounces and further strongly mixed path quality. Without Trak, we would be lost that day. We touch several castles, the big Kummerower lake. Even today we only notice the few wind turbines. Shortly before the conclusion of a discovery: the escort route to the main road south of Demmin runs mostly on the former small train route.
      Demmin with preserved city gate and a historic trauma: shortly before and during the conquest by the Red Army, there were arson, rape, etc. also nearly 1,000 suicides in the city, which was concealed from the GDR official historiography.

      MD-Stralsund # 7: Waren - BT - Neustrelitz, st. cloudy, a shiver, m. Westwind, 78 Photos
      Actually, a round track around the Müritz lakes is planned today, which seems too risky with 104 km and a lot of Wallachia in the regenerative weather. So we pull the actually planned for yesterday longer version of the stage from the drawer.
      In the center of the Bahntrassenweg west Neubrandenburg. With at least 18 km one of the longer - but alas:
      - The road connection in the west is miserable or plowed down to 400 m
      - the western section to Klein Lukow is a trail in the grass
      - just before Pnezlin a staircase
      - Penzlin town center overbuilt / rustic
      - bad to no signposting
      - Wulkenzin ends abruptly.
      Although the removed section is a beautiful car-free avenue, bl, the whole thing is unfortunately only a torso.
      Actually, we want to continue on the shores of Lake Tollensee; but through the previous experience with the Meck-Pomm "road network" we have become cautious and drive over road hilly and promising through WKA-free agricultural landscape with small forests to Neustrelitz, where we have to pass the time Bf. the RE5 returns only every 2 hours. We have been poorer for some illusions, but reasonably dry.

      MD-Stralsund # 6 Neustrelitz - goods, after nocturnal / morning rain, heavily overcast with small showers, m. SW wind, 14 °, 57 photos
      Because of a rainy area we drive today the selected short version. Thanks to rain radar we sit out until late in the morning the constant rain. This also gives the time to photograph a few views of the "Kulturfabrik", where we are a guest - a u.E. successful conversion of the former tiled stove factory.
      Then i.W. Towards the northwest we come to numerous idyllic lakes mostly with reed belt and past many forests - a romantic and secluded landscape. Mostly weak Roads, sometimes even after the rain passable gravel roads.
      The destination Waren / Müritz at the interface of several lakes is definitely overflowing Dido; The last lakeside areas are currently being added with multi-storey apartment.

      Very beautiful! Since we have vacationed in the summer. In the tiled stove factory we ate very delicious! Do you stay longer in the area?

About DiDo Schropa

Nach Schrottrobber-Vergangenheit "Foto-Flaneur" vor allem in NRW (incl. Zipfel Osnabrück) und BeNeLux,
Da Komoot die in den Fotos stets vorhandenen Metadaten nicht nutzt, um sie automatisch zu erzeugen, bisweilen etwas unschön als Text im Bild. Die Tour-Reports als Kommentar. Vgl. auch
Wegen wiederholter Fragen hier kurz mein Verwaltungs-Workflow:
Touraufzeichnung seit 2008 mit Garmin Outdoor-Navi (habe ich immer noch gern wegen Bedienung mit Handschuhen), Fotos mit Digitalkamara. Mit Geosetter ( Windows) Fotos lokalisiert, mit Ortsnamen aus und Standardeinträgen wie Copyright usw. versehen. Feinarbeit teilautomatisiert mit Titeln und Schlagwörten, der Nummer der TOPO-Karte etc. in Thumbsplus (und einigen Visual-Basic-Funktionen). Schließlich alle Metadaten in die Fotos geschrieben incl. Bewertung. Nur die mit >= 3 Sternen lade ich bei Komoot. Leider liest komoot bis auf die Koordinaten die Metadaten nicht aus und löscht sie sogar; und ich habe keine Lust auf stupide Kopierarbeiten für jedes Foto.
Bei dem Verfahren will ich einstweilen auch bleiben, Gründe:
Die Qualität der Originalfotos ist bedeutend besser als die komprimierte Komoot-Variante;
ich will sie offline behalten, denn ich will sie nicht verlieren, falls es komoot irgendwann nicht mehr gibt.
Ich bereinige die Tracks von Fehlmessungen; komoot kommt z.B. beim Höhenprofil i.d.R. zu stark überhöhten Werten.
Die Touren sind in MyTourbook und Basecamp archiviert incl. Foto-Waypoints, so dass ich jederzeit "weiße Flecken" (bislang unbekannte Wege/Areale) auf der Karte zwecks Tourplanung finden kann. In NRW benutze ich komoot bislang nicht zur Planung, weil bei aller Einfachheit manche "Geheimwege" nicht dargestellt sind.
Workflow im Detaill:
Schließlich zeige ich die Tracks auch gern auf den digitalisierten historischen TOPO-Karten (TK25History): so sähe die Tour im Jahre xxx aus, das macht die Sache erst recht im Sinn einer Zeitreise spannend.

Sobald eine größere Nähe von Komoot zu Google oder Facebook und Konsorten sichtbar wird, oder gar ein Verkauf an einen der Giganten im Raume stünde, bin ich hier wieder weg. Lieber bezahlen als verkauft werden!
Die Touren, bei denen der Spass am Fietsen im Vordergrund steht, heißen "Rennrad" ; die Enteckungs- und Erkundungstouren sind "Fahrrad". Reisen firmieren als "Mountainbike", fiktionale und Zeitreisen als "Laufen". Einfach, um etwas Struktur in die "gemachten" Touren zu bekommen.
Das Datum ist bei jeder Tour im Format TT.MM.JJJJ angegeben, so ergibt z.B. die Suche nach ".10.2017" Touren im Oktober 2017.
