... and wants to continue to the sea! An old song by Hannes Wader.Through the Ohligser Heide it goes to the gliding area, where there is of course a lot of activity in this weather. The two traction vehicles with the gliders in tow look like ants with too much luggage. They in turn only experience violent acceleration when the motor cable winch takes action and pulls it forward until it can lift off.
We observe the hustle and bustle for a while and then drive on to the nearby Graven house. Despite a visit to the beautiful and inviting inner courtyard, we cut back on coffee and cake, turn around and drive to the other side of the railway line that divides Langenfeld. Through the fields and along the Oerkhaussee you can go back to Hilden with a little more or less distance to the railway line.
And what shouldn't be missing in this weather? Of course, a delicious ice cream that we had packed in the ice cream parlor at the town hall and enjoyed at home on the terrace. 🍦🍦

For us the discovery of unknown terrain! Although Knechtsteden is not that far from the east of Düsseldorf and certainly not from Hilden, we did our first tour there today. From the hiking car park in Rosellerheide (I'm sorry for the poor residents of this street!) We went through the beautiful forest to the monastery and mostly through the fields past Gohr back to the starting point of our tour. Unfortunately it was very crowded in Knechtsteden, so we decided to make up the visit by visiting the basilica at a different time.

Small (trial) tour by bike from Hilden to Düsseldorf-Himmelgeist and back. In the meantime, the saddle and handlebar settings always had to be screwed on. When planning, I tried to choose as "green" routes as possible - unfortunately this was only partially successful ... 😬

Alarmed by the numerous forest fires in the areas we like to hike, here is a reference to the forest fire hazard index published by the DWD and updated daily in the morning:dwd.de/DE/leistungen/waldbrandgef/waldbrandgef.html?nn=510076
