Wohnt in Lilienthal bei Bremen
Today I was out on my bike again in snow and ice. Who knows what the weather will bring in the coming week. Maybe then we have to say goodbye to the snow and ice for the time being. Anyway, today I drove from Lilienthal to Osterholz-Scharmbeck and back again. The landscape was lovely.

Today I had planned a round trip from my native Lilienthal-Trupermoor, which should lead me via Sankt Jürgen, Höftdeich, past the Höftdeich pumping station and back home via the Trupe. The wheels equipped with winter tires should make it possible despite the bike-unfriendly weather.
Shortly after the “Höftdeich” restaurant, the road conditions became so bad (ruts driven into the slush yesterday were now frozen) that I decided to turn back. Even winter tires cannot do anything about this.
While I still had a tailwind on the way there, I got the wind from the front. Fortunately, I had my full face cap ("bank robber's cap") on under my helmet. This made the biting head wind with cold and snow more bearable than with a cap that only covers the head.
There was significantly more snow on the way back than on the way there. Above all, snow drifts had grown strongly, so that I had to get off the bike again and again and push it. The right side of my glasses frame was also frozen to my eyebrows. It was a new experience for me.

On Sunday, January 31st, 2021, the weather was really great: sun and snow. These are ideal conditions for setting out on a bike - provided you have appropriate clothing and tires. Cyclists were very sparsely represented that day, pedestrians even more. Above all, the snow-covered landscape showed itself from its most beautiful side. Have fun looking, and if you want to see the pictures again in a different format, we recommend the following video.

Once through the blockland with a closed snow cover, when was that last possible? I dont know.
But on Saturday, January 30th, 2021, there was an extraordinary sight of this beautiful corner even without snow. If you like, you are cordially invited to take a look at my captured optical impressions.
There is also a Relive film from the tour. You can see it under the link:

Today (29.01.2021) we literally sank into the snow in Lilienthal and Grasberg. At least by north German standards, the amount of snow that fell today was quite large.
So I set out on my bike (!) To capture this rare sight photographically. The resulting pictures are available here.
As a practical tip for cycling in the snow: It is absolutely helpful to use winter tires and only drive them with the minimum prescribed tire pressure in order to ensure the largest possible contact surface of the tires on the ground and thus the greatest possible driving stability. That saved me from numerous falls today.

After the research ship "Polarstern" moored last week after a year of voyage in its home port Bremerhaven and there at the dock of the home shipyard, namely the Lloyd shipyard, I set out to take a closer look at this ship consider.
With the car and the bike afterwards I drove to Bremerhaven-Wulsdorf, and from there I cycled in the direction of the Lloyd shipyard.
I couldn't get as close to the ship as I would have liked. But I had a relaxed ride through Bremerhaven (it was Sunday), was able to watch the weather-related play of light and finally was able to see something of the "Polarstern".
A Relive film is available here:

On October 17th, 2020, at around 6:30 a.m., I set off on my bike to drive towards the NSG Huvenhoopsmoor east of Gnarrenburg. Several hundred cranes are currently gathered there, passing through to the south.
In the NSG Huvenhoopsmoor the cranes were only sparsely seen around 8:15 a.m. In return, they were all the better to hear, as the following little film shows:
Only gradually did I see the birds there, but only from a considerable distance.
Only later on my journey, when I was between Ostersode and Hüttendorf, could I get really close to the cranes, and that next to a well-traveled country road. I was quite astonished about that.

Once again a real Komoot event with SpechtX and a selected and hard-boiled road crew on the turn for Bremen Rum. Despite the calm and a mild breeze from NNE, things went fast right from the start. 1st class team, good vibes, full power. That's how it should be! The common sense of well-being, however, messed up the cut again. But that's always the case. Either top team spirit or ambition at the end according to the motto,
"Better to die than lose momentum".
It’s probably not both together. For me, the day was THE BURNER.
Thanks to everyone who endured me. (Nobody can take that much nonsense!)
