In the meantime I have covered 16,000 km with the rear wheel motor in a good 2 years, a good part of which is on some tours to Hanover. Over time there was a crack here and there, which I ignored until last night. However, it was getting so loud that I didn't need the bell anymore, people turned around in surprise when I approached. From a pragmatic point of view, that's not bad, but sometimes the pedals jerked. So yesterday evening I complied and changed the bottom bracket and the chain ring, both of which I had already gotten a long time ago. Today I left relatively late after the lunch break to listen to whether everything went smoothly. What can I say, I was so satisfied that I went straight to Maschsee.My wife advised on the basis of a Whatsapp photo on which I sipped latte and the background was that I could hardly be at home until dinner. 😆
She would definitely not even have gone to the Maschsee. 🤔The routes are easy to drive. The Haseder Busch is an exception. Either stay on the main path, or take the Panzerstraße as on the way back. Alternatively, you can go past the harbor to the Engelke mill, which produces flour of the "Domperle" brand.

We didn't know the Bergmühle campsite until the site was presented in the Hildesheimer Allgemeine last week. Curiously we took a bike ride there today. Although the place is close to the highway and a federal road, it was extremely isolated and quiet. The place is ideal for relaxing in a very beautiful environment. We paid a daily fee and used the well-kept sanitary facilities during the long break.
The way back led via Holle and Söder to Bad Salzdetfurth for ice licking.The tour contains a few steep sections, good physical condition or an e-bike is a must.campingplatz-bergmuehle.de

The Pentecost weekend is not used for a short break this time. Today chilling and grilling was the order of the day at home. Nevertheless, movement in the evening does not hurt, so we went up on the bike again and did a little tour along the Innerste to the Wildgatter am Steinberg ...... Maybe tomorrow's tour will be extended a bit. Not that the short tours are becoming chronic. We've been relatively lazy lately. 🤔😉

In the evening the weather was really great again. So get on your bike and cycle against the wind towards the northwest. Ferry services between the Puttgarden and Rodby ferry ports continue to operate despite the corona restrictions. Even though the port is almost deserted. Few goods are likely to be transported.

Komoot makes it difficult for me to keep calm tonight. Images from the camera on the smartphone and then upload with komoot, actually no problem. But why is the order of the pictures completely mixed up? It's just not fun that way. 🙄It is an island tour through the southern area of Fehmarn. The start and end point is Camping Klausdorfer Strand. From the depth of the castle you leave the bank area and drive back via the castle. There is little traffic except for the entrance to Burg.

The tour is half an island tour in the north of Fehmarn. It starts in the east at Camping Klausdorfer Strand and leads to Lemkenhafen in the west. Back it goes across the island on side roads. The entire circumnavigation of the island would take a long time due to the many opportunities to pause and watch. Most sections of the route are relatively easy to drive, but the effort is quite high due to the sea wind.
My tip for lunch is the restaurant "Am Deich" between the campsites "Camping am Deich" and "Teichhof Camping".
The Flügger lighthouse is the first choice for coffee and cake. You can get the best homemade apple or cheesecake with coffee there. The ascent to the tower is highly recommended, you have a magnificent view of parts of the island and the sound.

If you have such a big tour, you have to have good endurance and don't give up on climbs, or ride an e-bike. 😉Today it was dry and quite sunny, but not overly warm. Unfortunately, the "light northwest wind" turned out to be quite strong. However, we drove the tour into the wind, so that a reversal with decreasing strength or weakening battery would not have been a problem. There are also plenty of train stations on the tour (Coppenbrügge, Voldagsen, Osterwald, Elze and Nordstemmen), so that you can take a train every hour with a bicycle.At Campingpark Humboldtsee we asked for a parking space for the coming weekends. Unfortunately, the corona crisis means that the space can only be partially occupied and that everything is already fully booked. There have not been decades in which we regularly stand here with the caravan. 🙄There was ice cream at the snack bar. 😎Things are not looking good at Bruchsee: the kiosk is closed and there is no sign or indication of opening. The guests rested there and ate what we brought with us.The ride back was comfortable thanks to the backwind, but in the end we felt the kilometers clearly in our legs. We are a bit frustrated because the planned camping weekends are canceled. But who cares, there are round tours from the front door. 😉

Eigentlich bin ich schon immer Rad gefahren. Während der Schulzeit und des Studiums sehr viel. Zwischenzeitlich hat es mal stark nachgelassen, aber dank der Entdeckung des E- bikes kam wieder frischer Wind rein. Der E- Antrieb eliminiert für mich all das, was das Radfahren vermiesen kann: Starker Gegenwind und Steigungen spielen keine Rolle mehr. Man kann bei schlechter Witterung gut eingepackt und geschützt vor der Kälte fahren, ohne irgendwann im eigenen Saft zu schwimmen. Bei Regen ähnlich: Weil man nicht zwangsläufig schwitzen muss, entsteht unter der Regenhaut nicht zwangsläufig eine Sauna....Mittlerweile wird das Auto kaum noch bewegt. Einkäufe landen im Anhänger, der tägliche Weg zur Arbeit erfolgt mit Ebike. Das beste ist die Barrierefreiheit: Man kann wie mit einem normalen Fahrrad überall langfahren, hat aber einen gewaltigen Aktionsradius. In letzter Zeit fahren meine Frau und ich häufig mit dem Zug als Zubringer für weiter entfernte Regionen und machen von dort aus die Touren. Oder man fährt eine Strecke hin, mit der Bahn zurück....
