      The destination of my today's bike tour is the Trinitatiskirche in Riesa. If you take the train or bike to Riesa, you will notice this church from a long way off. I always wanted to take a closer look at the structure, so get up the bike and off you go. I was lucky too, because the church was open.
      The Trinity Church was built between 1895 and 1897 according to plans by the architect Jürgen Kröger. The inauguration took place on July 4, 1897. The inside of the church looks fantastic. On the west gallery is a large electro-pneumatic organ, built by the brothers Jähmlich in 1897.
      Of course there are many sights along the way, e.g. the windmill in Gohlis, the windmill in Schänitz, Hirschstein Castle, the Monastery of the Holy Cross and of course the Albrechtsburg and the cathedral in Meißen. The chemical shop in Nünchritz may not look so nice, but the factory is definitely interesting.

      Today I was once again the noble helper or slipstream donor to get someone going who was sick for a long time. Since there aren't many tourists at the moment, we were able to take a leisurely look at the Meissen Cathedral. The donor figures of Emperor Otto I and his wife Adelheid of Burgundy are particularly beautiful. The cathedral is one of the most beautiful buildings I know.

      Actually, I wanted to cycle to the Czech border in Schöna today. From me that is exactly 50 kilometers. But it will soon be holiday season and the number of tourists on the Elbe Cycle Path is increasing. is all right that way. And just in time for the holiday season, construction work on the bike path begins again. Great, because now seems like the best time to do it. There was no getting through between the city of Wehlen and the health resort of Rathen. Therefore changed the program and went in the other direction. If only I would have done that right away.

      If someone has been sick for a long time and wants to get going again, then I'm happy to help. So yesterday I went on a little bike tour along the Elbe, where I donated a lot of slipstream.

      Lots of errands in the city, then met my son and spontaneously decided that we should ride our bikes a little.

      My goal today is the stumbling block in the Eastern Ore Mountains. If you want to know what the stumbling block is: this is a mountain in the Ore Mountains. Its height is exactly 8473 decimeters (considerable). As always, the start is Dresden Tolkewitz. It goes my well-known route up over the Lockwitztal to Reinhardtsgrimma. Here I took a little rest and looked at the cemetery and the church. The next destination is Oberfrauendorf. At the top you have a very good view of Dresden and the surrounding mountains. I cycled via Hochwaldstraße to Alte Eisenstraße, and then I plunged into what felt like an abyss - that's how steep the Eisenstraße is towards Schmiedeberg. Afterwards my brakes were pretty hot. Now it is not far to Kipsdorf. So far the mountains have been moderate and easy to cycle. That changed extremely from Bärenfels. The longest and steepest ascent begins in Seyde, and you are actually only at the top when you are on the block. Above Seyde a fantastic view of the Kahleberg and the Pöbeltal. From the summit of the Hemmschuh you don't have a good view, the only interesting thing is the ski lift, which is of no use to me in summer either. The descent from the Hemmschuh down to Neurehefeld is extremely steep, but fun. I drove back home via the Kahleberg, Altenberg and the Müglitztal. Allegedly you should see the Fichtelberg from the Kahleberg. Unfortunately, I've never been lucky or it's not true.

      I didn't have the right idea for an interesting bike tour today, so I only rode my usual home tour in the evening.

      Actually, this should be a hike from the "Hiking & Nature Guide Lausitzer Bergland". Unfortunately, the paths were partly extremely destroyed by large forest machines, so that we had to tinker our own route.
      From Neuschirgiswalde (where the hike starts) you have a wonderful view of the Czorneboh, the Kälbersteinen and Crostau. Below the Weifaer Höhe, the view across to the Zittau Mountains. Of course, the Lausche and the high forest can be seen very well. Unfortunately, the Jeschken was a bit in the haze.

      The Sattelberg (Špičák) is one of the most distinctive mountains in the Eastern Ore Mountains. Its height is always 723 meters, making it a little bit higher than the Hohe Schneeberg.
      First I cycled the Elbe Cycle Path to Pirna, then via Zehista, Cotta, Berggießhübel to Bad Gottleuba. The real mountain ranges begin from Bad Gottleuba. I didn't go straight to Oelsen but turned left in front of it. Here you have a wonderful slope up to the Oelsener Friedhof. I think the street is called Alte Oelsener Straße. Once at the top, you have the first wonderful view down to Dresden and the many Saxon and Bohemian mountains. It is now not far to the Oelsener Höhe. I was particularly lucky with the weather today because the visibility was fantastic. In front of me the Hohe Schneeberg, on the right the Tyssa walls, on the left the Kreibitzer Gebirge. I even saw the Great Antenna Mast on Jedlova. The Lausche is hidden behind the Tannenberg, but you can see the Rosenberg, the Kaltenberg, Wolfsberg, Unger, Tanzplan, Valtenberg, Keulenberg, Saxon Switzerland etc. very well! I am convinced that with a particularly clear view you should even see the Collmberg.
      The way to the Sattelberg is not far anymore. Since the mountain is very steep, I had to push my bike several times. The view from the Sattelberg is not that good, but the Ore Mountains can be seen very well. If you look very closely, you might also find the mosquito tower.
      I've come up with something very special for the return trip. I really wanted to cycle up the 15 percent ramp to Breitenau again. And that was really fun. It goes back home via the Seitewitztal and the Elbe Cycle Path. A tour with fantastic views. Great cinema: the view of the Kreibitz Mountains.
