Heute habe ich dieses nichtradln einfach nicht mehr ausgehalten. Schließlich war die Straße auch trocken, das war meine größte Sorge: Auf einer Ausscholle dahinsegeln...
Gut, es war kalt heute und obendrein auch noch nebelig in Erding. Dabei sah es erst nach Sonnenscheint aus.Gestartet bin ich diesmal ein wenig umständlicher, ich brauchte eisfreie Straßen. So ging es in eine Schleife auf die Lange Feldstraße und kurz nach der Unterquerung der B388 stand ich dann auch schon im dicken Nebel. Da war ich mir dann nicht mehr so sicher, ob das so eine gute Idee war aufs Radl zu steigen. Aber die Sicht war auf gut 200m noch in Ordnung, so ging es dann über Pretzen nach Singlding. Da war die Suppe dann so dick, dass ich erst einmal angehalten habe um Licht einzuschalten. Da war ich mir dann schon sicher, das wird eine ganz kurze Runde.Aber nach Pretzen war schon ein heller Fleck am Himmel zu erkennen und in Unterschwillach war dann plötzlich blauer Himmel und Sonnenschein. Das gepaart mit einer geräumten, trockenen Straße umsäumt von schneebedeckten Feldern, das hat schon etwas. Nach der Bahnunterführung standen dann auch gleich 7 Rehe auf dem Feld. Soviele auf einem Fleck hatte ich noch nie gesehen, meist waren es eher 3-4.In der Sonne war es sogar recht angenehm, obwohl das Thermometer auf -5°C stand. Was so ein bisschen Sonne ausmacht. Allerdings hatte ich hier auch ein wenig Rückenwind. Von hinten kommend war der gar nicht störend.So ging es weiter nach Forstinning, da gab es dann wieder eine leichte Abweichung, ich hage die Nebenstraßen durch den Ort doch lieber gemieden, stattdessen ging es über die Hauptstraße durch den Ort. Immerhin der Schlenker über Straßham und Kipfing war taddellos zu radln, die Straßen waren wunderbar frei. Ebenso der anschließende Radlweg nach Karlsdorf, nur leider die Auffahrt nicht. So musste ich erst bis Pullach auf der Straße radln.Allerdings war ich jetzt dem Ostwind ausgesetzt, der war schon frisch. Die Temperaturen gingen auch auf -6°C herunter. Immerhin, bei so einer Kälte war ich noch nicht mit dem Rennrad unterwegs.Richtig warm wurde es dann am Ende der Abfahrt in den Ort: Da geht der Radlweg in den Fußweg über und der war nur halbherzig geräumt...Dort bin ich dann rechts weg zum Gasthaus an der B12 abgebogen. Der Radlweg hier gen Hohenlinden war zwar auch geräumt, aber an vielen Stellen doch ein wenig zugeweht. Da fährt man doch etwas vorsichtiger. Die Alternative wäre auf der B12 zu radln, das wollte ich dann noch viel weniger.Der anschließende Anstieg nach Kreiling war problemlos. Die Filialkirche St. Pankratius lag wie immer schön idyllisch da, diesmal mit Schee umsäumt, das hat auch mal etwas. Nur das letzte Stück des Anstieges nach Neuharting war wieder übel: Da war der Ostwind recht eisig. Damit entfiel dann auch die Option, weiter nach Isen zu radln. Ich wollte mein Glück mit den eisfreien Straßen auch nicht überstrapazieren.Also ging es über den Höhenzug bis Buch. Die weitere Fahrt nach Hallnberg habe ich mir lieber erspart: Ich war nicht sicher, ob die Feldwege nach Hörlkofen frei sind und durch Walpertskirchen wollte ich nicht radln.Also bin ich in Buch wieder gen Westen geradelt und kurz nach dem Ortsausgang rechts über Ötz nach Poigenberg. Das ist eine schöne Strecke, kaum bis gar kein Verkehr, dafür ein guter Straßenbelag und mit den kleinen Wäldchen einmal eine Alternative Aussicht zu Wiesen und Feldern. Hier wurde es sogar mal wärmer und das Thermometer kletterte auf -3°C hoch. Das hielt aber nicht lange, kurz hinter Poigenberg war es schon vorbei...In Poigenberg hätte ich dann beinahe einen Tesla gerammt. Gut, bei der Kälte muss der wohl seinen Akku schonen, da kann man den Blinker nicht betätigen, da wird einfach so abgebogen. Vermutlich hat er mich auch nur übersehen, sonst hätte er wohl angehalten um keine Beule in seinem Auto zu riskieren...Statt über Oberschwillach zu radln, bin ich spontan auf die neue Straße nach Zeilern abgebogen, die sah völlig schnee- und eisfrei aus und ich war noch nicht durchgefroren...Von da ging es dann, mit der Sonne im Rücken, nach Unterschwillach und auf die übliche Route zurück. Ab Pretzen hat sich dann noch der Vorteil des Nebels gezeigt: Hier schien nun auch die Sonne aber die Bäume waren alle herrlich weiß vereist. Das hat schon etwas.In Alternerding gab es dann wieder die Extraschleife, der direkte Weg war nicht geräumt und ich mag es einfach nicht, das Radl zu schieben...Das war eine herrliche Tour durch wunderschön verschneite Landschaften. Das hätte ich jetzt nach dem anfänglichen Nebel nicht mehr erwartet. Die Fotos sprechen wohl für sich. Es war auch gar nicht so schlimm kalt, wie vermutet. Dennoch bin ich lieber eine kürzere Runde geradelt, ich wollte mein Glück nicht überstrapazieren. Die Kälte hat auch noch einen weiteren Vorteil: Man muss gar nicht groß überlegen, was man anziehen soll: Einfach alles...Wer weiß schon, wann man wieder bei so einer wundervoll verschneiten Landschaft wieder zum Radln kommt?

Somehow the weather doesn't want to be very cycling-friendly this year. Well, the weather was very good on New Year's Eve, I just couldn't go cycling. But today the road was mostly dry and snow has been announced for tomorrow. The alternative would be on the roll in the basement, then you can find a way to bike ...The weather was also modestly cloudy, not really bright and the air quite humid. When I was cycling in Itzling, my fingers were so cold that they hurt a lot. But at least: In contrast to the toes, which are firmly in the shoe, I could move my fingers. So there was a few finger exercises on the route past the thermal baths via Kempfing to Notzing. There was hardly anyone around who could shake their head about it ...Lo and behold: In Notzing the fingers were warm and they stayed that way until the end of the tour. Even the toes stayed warm long enough today, so you have to make it to Notzing first, then it's OK. Maybe next time I should start there?Originally I had my eye on the round around Freising, i.e. via Marzling, the ridge from Goldshausen and then via Pettenbrunn to Freising. That seemed to me to be a bit too long at the advanced hour and then I headed straight for Freising. After all, I'm a pioneer for the Freising district, so I can also cycle through the city. Today there was hardly any traffic anyway, every now and then a few pedestrians with dogs or toddlers, everyone else probably didn't want to go outside ...So, coming from Eitting, I cycled past the Stoibermühle to Freising. There was only a little traffic on the short main road sections. Still, the few red lights were annoying.If you think it would be crazy to ride a racing bike in such weather. That can be increased when I crossed the Isar, a mountain biker in shorts came towards me. Apparently everything can be increased ...Nevertheless, I got through quite well, past the cathedral and Weihenstephan in the background, I came to the cycle path along the railway line. As always, the route is easy to cycle, only my camera battery was probably too cold, which was then empty. But I had a spare battery with me ...The road from the railway line to the main road from Pulling is still in a deplorable condition, luckily it is not long.Shortly before crossing the railway, I turned again, it was still light :-)
and I came to Achering through the Moosachauen. The further way was the usual one over the wooden bridge of the Isar, under the motorway and railway line, past the horse clinic and again over the S-Bahn. This is a beautiful, idyllic route that is always worthwhile.In the end it went through Hallbergmoos, at the roundabout I followed a piece of the new bypass road and then shortly after the next roundabout I turned to Birkeneck.Since it was still light (whatever that meant today), I turned off at the tennis halls to Goldach and through the Zenger and Schnabelmoos I went back again. Then it slowly got darker, so that was possible today. For the last half hour I preferred to turn on the light. The view was still sufficient, but whether the few drivers saw it that way?Apart from the first few kilometers that I just needed to warm up, the tour wasn't that bad. Well, there was little to see and the landscape looked rather bleak. Still, the exercise in the fresh air was good. Somehow I don't like sitting around at home that long.In addition, from tomorrow snow will be announced again and when those with the stupid 15km quarantine distance come around Erding ...
Who should you be infected while cycling when you are out and about on your own? Or who should infect you? Neither of these works, especially since hardly anyone was out today anyway ...

Das war doch einmal ein schöner Radlabschluss für dieses seltsame Jahr. Immerhin bin ich noch nie soviel in einem Jahr geradelt, somit gibt es wenigstens etwas positives zu vermelden...Heute war das Wetter einfach schön, die Sonne schien, der Himmel war blau, lediglich die zum Teil nasse Straße war von Nachteil, zumal man oft nicht erkennen konnte, ob sie nur nass oder vielleicht doch glatt ist. Damit waren so manche Abfahrten doch eher mit angezogener Bremse radlbar. Auch der doch recht frische Wind aus Südosten war nicht so optimal. Aber irgendetwas ist ja immer...Ursprünglich wollte ich mal wieder in den Norden radln, aber bei dem angekündigten Wind hatte ich es dann doch lieber vorgezogen, erst einmal gen Süden zu radln. Der Wind kam mir nicht sehr schlimm vor, allerdings kam ich auch nicht schnell vorwärts, er war wohl doch da, nur ich war gut eingepackt...So ging es wieder gen Süden und bei Herdweg ging es nach der Brücke rechts weg gen Markt Schwaben. Hier bin ich schon zweimal vor der Brücke abgebogen, die Straße suggeriert das irgendwie, dann steht man allerdings in einem Hof...In Markt Schwaben bin ich diesmal wieder hinter der Brauerei langgeradelt, irgendwie war mir auf der Hauptstraße noch zuviel Verkehr. Ich hatte wieder auf dem Weg nach Anzing die Schleife über Lindach eingebaut. Das war nicht so gut, im Ort stand ich dann plötzlich auf einer vereisten Straße. Das waren zwar nur gut 10-20 Meter, reicht aber um unruhig zu werden. Da ging es dann langsam über das Eis. Kurz danach hatte ich noch zweimal so ein Vergnügen im Schatten von Häusern. Zum Glück passierte nichts weiter und ich kam gut nach Anzing und von da nach Purfing.Den Abstecher über Ingelsberg habe ich mir diesmal gespart, dafür ging es dann direkt nach Eglharting. Da stand ich natürlich wieder vor dem Tunnel unter der S-Bahn, dafür konnte ich die Ampel danach direkt bei grün erreichen. Das hatte ich noch nie geschafft, gewöhnlich stehe ich hier immer zweimal.Da die Hauptstraße nach Kirchseeon grausam ist, der Radlweg fehlt immer mal zwischendrin und heute war er ohnehin oft vereist und mit Split versehen, gab es noch einen Bogen über Riedering. Die Strecke ist definitiv hübscher zu radln.Weiter ging es über Fürmoosen und dann durch den Wald. Hier war es zwar recht frisch, dafür waren dann aber am Ende des Waldes die Alpen zu sehen, da freut man sich doch. Die waren zwar etwas trüb heute, aber das macht nichts. Dafür war die Luft ansonsten erstaunlich klar heute, ganz anders als im Sommer.Die Strecke bis Grafing war wieder schön und gut zu radln und selbst durch Grafing ging es recht problemlos. Die meisten waren wohl eher daheim, zumindest nicht mit dem Auto unterwegs. Mittlerweile dürften auch die letzten Geschäfte hier geschlossen sein.Das anschließende Stück bis Traxl war wieder landschaftlich schön zu radln und nach Traxl wurde es richtig traumhaft. Das Stück bis Sensau ist einfach ein Genuss, es geht leicht hügelig und kurvig sowie bergab, vorbei an grünen Wiesen und den Alpen im Hintergrund. Das muss man einfach einmal gesehen haben, das kommt auf den Fotos so nicht herüber. Ich glaube, das erste Mal, dass ich hier vorbei geradelt bin, hatte ich den Mund vor staunen nicht schließen können. Das ist einfach empfehlenswert!Von Sensau nach Tulling geht es zwar über die Hauptstraße, die war aber heute völlig leer und der Blick den Hügel hoch auf Tulling, der hat auch schon etwas zu bieten. Ebenso der große, alte Steinbauernhof mitten im Ort. Gut, der Misthaufen davor trübt das etwas ein.Über Endorf nach Etzenberg war wieder gut und einsam zu radln und auch die Öltankts von OMV waren heute geruchsneutral, zumindest in direkter Nähe. Erst später auf der Hauptstraße und kurz vor Rupertsdorf war dann doch deutlich der Geruch zu vernehmen. Seltsam, im Sommer war mir der nie aufgefallen.Bei Graben bin ich dann wieder abgebogen, allerdings waren hier auch häufiger Stellen noch ein wenig vereist. Ich bin zum Glück problemlos, wenn auch vorsichtig, durchgekommen. Im Wald sah es ähnlich aus und es wurde kalt. Das Thermometer sank auf -1°C. Bei Birkach ging es dann auf den Radlweg neben der B12, hier war ich wieder in der Sonne und es war gleich spürbar angenehmer. Nun ging es auch endlich mit Rückenwind weiter nach Hohenlinden.Diesmal ging es dann an der B12 weiter, heute war wenig Verkehr und den Radlweg hatte ich noch nie bis zum Ende genutzt. Am Ende schloss dann die Straße über Kipfing und Straßham an, das ist einfach schön zu radln. Am Ende sieht man noch das Elefantegras und nach dem kleinen Wäldchen ist man auch schon fast in Zeilern. Der Abschluss war dann wie üblich über Unterschwillach zurück nach Altenerding.Eine wunderschöne Tour bei bestem Winterwetter. Ich hätte nie geglaubt, dass Radln im Winter einem doch so viel Freude bereiten kann. Man muss sich nur aufraffen. Und warm anziehen, ist auch nicht verkehrt. Lediglich die kalten Zehen stören ein wenig, die sind - dank Winterschuhe - nicht mehr so kalt wie früher, aber dennoch ein bisschen unangenehm kühl nach über drei Stunden...

First the weather was modest, then came the sedentary and high-calorie holidays. They were kind of great, only something was missing ...The good news: I got on the saddle today without any help. That's a highlight, after all, I wanted to try out my Christmas gifts: winter cycling shoes :-))I wasn't put off by the temperature, after all, the sun was shining. I was just not sure if I would manage the planned tour, after all, it was a bit very fresh and the wind wasn't so bad with the temperatures.On the other hand, I had chosen a tour to the south, it went south for a long time and then back almost parallel to it. So I could have easily turned and shortened at any time. The knowledge helps at the beginning and in the end I didn't need it at all.However, the first part was quite arduous, the temperatures then quickly went from warm living room to -3 ° C. In addition, there was a fresh wind that came from the beginning, of course. It wasn't strong, but it was cold and that after the holidays led to a very slow initial tempo. Somehow I didn't quite get into the act.The shoes were nice and warm, the rest was packed up pretty well and so it was nice there via Unterschwillach, Zeilern, Karlsdorf and shortly before Preisendorf then to Hohenlinden. The eternal red light there just stayed red, apparently I couldn't trigger the movement contact. Well there weren't any cars anyway ...After Hohenlinden I spontaneously took a short detour away from the main road and at Birckach it went under the B12 up to the forest. There was still a little snow here and it was even fresher in the forest. After that it got better and from the main street there was a wonderful view of the partly snow-covered Alps. That also has something.Only the OMV tanks were a bit annoying with their subtle scent of oil. This was short-lived, however, and when I got up I could see the Alps again.We continued through beautiful green fields to Tulling, the descent there was nice but also very cold, in addition to the headwind there was also the cold headwind. After all, it was significantly warmer in the sunny south: -2 ° C.In Sensau, I briefly thought about whether I should cut it short. But everything was still pleasantly warm, so I went on to Barlmühle, where I turned and stood even more in the wind. After the descent, of course, it went up again. But the subsequent route through the fields was again at its best and via Mühlbichl we went to Hirschbichl. I had chosen the castle there as today's destination.That was a bit disappointing though, you couldn't get close, nor was it particularly imposing, it looked more like a neat mansion. However, the way there was the goal, so it was a perfect fit.Then it got more pleasant and nicer again. I had the sun from behind now, but also the wind from there. That was kind of more pleasant ...The piece from Tergernau via Traxl was again wonderful, as was the further course to Oberndorf. From Langwied to Ebersberg there was a long, neat climb followed by a steep descent. But I couldn't let my bike run here, on the one hand there were a lot of people walking and on the other hand, at the end of the main street, which is still busy today. From there it went uphill again from Ebersberg to the industrial area. I think my average speed was down to 23 km / h.In return, the long section came through the Walt on a slight slope and a slight tail wind. But that was the only good thing, it was moving fast. Otherwise it was more than shady and cold, and on top of that it always just goes out. I was already happy when Schwaberwegen finally showed up.During the stretch to Forstinning I could feel the cold wind a little again, but it pushed me well to Ottenhofen. I wanted to turn right after the train, but then I preferred to test the wind and cycled through the town and back past F.X.Meiler. The route is nice, but here the wind was good and cold again. So it was a little laborious to Unterschwillach and from there back home with a tail wind.That was a surprisingly nice lap in cold weather but also with a clear view and completely free of non-tasting insects. After 3.5 hours, however, my toes were cold despite winter shoes and neoprene covers. But not as bad as with normal racing bike shoes ...

The weather on Thursday was fine and I couldn't take time off. Yesterday the weather forecast was much better and that's how it was: + 5 ° C with a blue sky. So I worked faster, was home early and at 12 o'clock already in cycling clothes when a disturbance came in. It was quickly fixed and off we went, only the sun was gone. Annoying, it got even worse 1 km later: I was already standing in the thick, dark fog on the Lange Feldstrasse. I preferred to turn around and hoped for today.Fantastic weather, white-blue sky and temperatures far in the positive range were not available in the Erding district. But somehow I finally wanted to cycle again. The hot + 3 ° C weren't there today either, the sun wasn't there anyway. Most of the time it was -3 ° C, towards the end the -4 ° C was seen more often. After all, I haven't had that this year. On top of that, fog came up towards the end, so it was not only really cold, it was also damp and felt much colder ...So today I decided on the moss, because you can shorten it quickly if it gets too cold or foggy.The start was really fresh, but after a few kilometers it went reasonably well. Itzling looked quite frozen, especially the mustard glistened a little in the frozen hoar frost. After that it remained very bleak for a long time and there was hardly anyone to be seen. So it went via Notzing to Oberdinger Moos and to Gut Wildschwaige via Goldach to Zengermoos. Here I turned off just before the main road and cycled through the forest to Brennermühlstraße in Eichenried by the fire brigade. Then it went past the stud and the nursery to the BR's transmitter in Ismaning. Here slowly but surely the fog came up and my toes got uncomfortably cold again. The closer I got to the reservoir, the foggy it got. Up until then I had thought I was the only crazy guy with a racing bike, but shortly before the Finsinger Alm I met two groups of three on a racing bike and a lonely cyclist was on the way past the test track.After the Alm it was on the main road to Eichenried, but I went straight back down there, I don't really trust traffic when the fog is coming. As a result, it went through the moss to Eichenried and then across to Moosinning.Finally I cycled through the Schnabelmoos to Eching and on to the thermal baths. At the top of the FTO driveway the traffic light was red, I had to stop and was immediately blind because the glasses fogged up so badly. It's not very funny, but she cleared up quickly while cycling. The rest was almost like the way there, from the thermal baths via Itzling back to Altenerding. That was enough.It is a wonderful feeling when your toes get warm again and you can feel them. The winter cycling shoes won't be available for a few days, they'll be under the tree, I'm sure ...

That was kind of a strange day. First sun and a fabulous 5 ° C were announced and yet in the morning only fog could be seen. But then around noon the sun came out and I spontaneously took half a day off. I haven't been on my bike that fast for a long time, that was probably due to the disappointing weather at the weekend.Originally I wanted to go to Fraunberg and Taufkirchen. But already in Ismaning I was in the fog again. It didn't get any better until Kempfing, but I ran out of breath here, of course in the back, where else too.It is good if you have a specialist in Kempfing, because you can borrow a decent air pump. It's bad when nobody is at home ...So installed a replacement tube and inflated it with the mini pump until the tire threatens to burst. That was about 3 bars ...Then I spontaneously cycled back, plugged in a new replacement hose and pumped another 5 bar into the rear tire.Somehow I didn't want to cycle to Kempfing again, so I spontaneously switched to the southern circuit. But already after the underpass I was in the fog again on the Lange Feldstrasse. It lasted until Niederwörth and suddenly the sun came through. From the top of the mountain there was also the white and blue sky, from then on it was just fantastic.Winter is when you are happy about + 4 ° C, that was really nice and pleasant here. So it went on the usual round over Unterschwillach and Wimpasing to Forstinning. So of course I cycled on the obligatory loop over Straßham and Kipfing. Obviously this is an unnecessary detour, but since the journey is known to be the goal, you have to look at it with different eyes. The landscape is simply wonderful to cycle through, first the empty main road with the beautiful descent from the bridge, slightly winding with the forest in front of you. Then the pretty elephant grass and finally the small towns. I think you just have to take that with you.In Karlsdorf I'm immediately right again to the B12, but then I ended up in the cold shadow of the Ebersberger Forst, the cycle path was fresh, although it already runs on the other side.For a change, this time it was not via Neumühlhausen to Preisendorf, but via Altmühlhausen, past the wood chip plant.After Kreiling, the route to the idyllic St. Pankratius branch church was of course on the program again. This is a picturesque area, surrounded by the weeping willows, the small pond and the curved path to the farm. That is a wonderful sight, as is the slightly curved ascent, the view of the farm as you walk around the forest, there is something about it. Then you are on the beautiful ridge, with a slight slope over the many Buchs and on to Walpertskirchen.I had considered turning from Hallnberg to Kirchasch, but since the shadows were long here and the fingers were badly cold, I went through the fields to Hörlkofen and on via Ringelsdorf to Indorf.This time I cycled through the village, it was still quite light and at the end I went via Teufkirchen and Berg back to Pretzen and Altenerding.After the bike ride was canceled at the weekend, it felt really good today, especially when the sun came out. And even better: in a week the days will be longer again. Well, there are two more weeks until it stays light like today, but the trend is important. You feel much better there ... :-)

Well, with the weather today, a very long lunch break was announced. It was unbelievable what a contrast to yesterday, and it wasn't much warmer. What makes a little sun alone ...This time I decided to go to Holzland. That wasn't exactly the best choice, the sky was slowly closing in from the east and that's exactly where my tour took me. But at least the first half was in beautiful winter weather with a white-blue sky. Only the street was still quite damp, the bike looked bad again afterwards ...Nevertheless, it was worth it, the church of Itzling in the sun was nice to look at, the empty thermal bath also had its charm and via Kempfing we went to Stamham and on to Aufkirchen, which also looked great.Through the fields we went on to Niederding, there immediately to the right, past the open cowshed, the cows are always looking out here, it just looks pretty. Apparently they prefer nature to the stable ...Even the long stretch through the fields to Eitting looked wonderful today, and cycling was just a pleasure. From there I cycled via Eichenkofen, Tittenkofen and Fraunberg to Reichenkirchen and from there through the fields to Riding to get to the beautiful ski jump in Auerbach.There are actually three, a large, a medium and a very small hill. Internationally they are probably all puny, but to be honest, I wouldn't even try the mini-jump ...The subsequent ascent to the main road was again the finest, it takes a long time, is quite decent at around 5% and then again really in the percent at the end, that should have been around 18%. Then the ascent on the main road, which is beautifully located in the forest, looks like a flat stretch. That’s still a good 5% ...At Schachtelberg I then turned left and went in a beautiful arc, but now with no sunshine, to Schröding. Now it got really fresh, the east wind is colder than yesterday's west wind. What the heck, I was cycling, somehow I was already warm.In another loop, it went from Amelgering via places like Ramperding, Rechtlfing, Reit and Schachten to Hofstarring to enjoy the descent through Steinkirchen.As is so often the case, it went straight up to Großwimpasing and it was in inning. It was first downhill and then uphill again to be able to enjoy the descent to Hienraching. If the camera hadn't paused to think while retracting the lens. Braking with wet rims downhill with one hand because the main road crosses below is not one of the great pleasures of cycling ...On the cycle path I was then slowed down by a small excavator, which thought it had to relieve the B388 by driving over the cycle path: - /Then the beautiful corrugated iron came from Sonnendort via Großköchlham, Blainthal and Stimmer to Oberhofkirchen. The route is beautiful, but a little exhausting. Most of the climbs can, however, be traversed with the momentum of the descent, provided that the legs are still playing.The conclusion was then, as usual, via Maierklopfen to Bockhorn and through the fields to Salmannskirchen. Instead of cycling back via the main road, I cycled again via Neukirchen and Kölling to Papferding. The last part was Ringelsdorf, Indorf and Petzen, and then I was back home.About time too, the darkness was slowly approaching and my fingers became clammy.That was an unexpected, beautiful tour. I hadn't expected that yesterday. It only happened at short notice that I got time to cycle. I can make up for that right away ...Winter can stay like this, only the roads should be drier. Cleaning bikes is not one of my favorite occupations. But what do you not do to be able to cycle ...

That was the moment today when the bad weather didn't stop me from cycling. Somehow I had to get out, even if the temperatures between -1 ° C and 0 ° C weren't exactly ideal. Then there was the overcast sky, which made everything appear even more cloudy. On top of that, the road was damp and the west wind was at least noticeable. So it started off against the wind to the west, that's where the moss lies.Although there was the first interruption on the ascent to the B388: I was wearing my underhelmet, only my helmet ...After the short extra round it went via Itzling to the thermal baths and then to the B388 to then cycle via Kempfing to Notzing. Anyway, I stopped here for a short while, the lock is finally visible. Well, it's not particularly imposing, it also looks more like a mansion than a castle ...The route through the fields to Oberding was already defining for today: dark, damp, cold ...After all, the green manure could still be seen in many places. It's amazing how long the mustard has been chewing through, the yellow flowers were often still visible. Shortly after Gut Wildschwaige it went to Goldach and from there over the old tire hump piste to Zengermoos, past the golf course and then the dangling over the Brennermühlstrasse through the forest. Here I didn't notice the tail wind, but it went much faster ...Somehow today there were only people with dogs or parents with small children outside, the rest probably didn't have the urge for fresh air ...Accordingly, nothing was going on at the Finsiger Alm, it was also closed. Then I just asked myself whether the vending machine also heats up in this weather so that the drinks don't freeze?At the Finsinger Weiher there was of course nothing going on and the route then led me to the industrial area in Neufinsingen and there over the Isar Canal, which is well filled with water. From here the long but leisurely climb to Finsing began. If you think that the incline is over at the entrance to the village: that's only halfway ...Even the descent to Oberneuching was modest, the view was just cloudy and nothing and nobody to be seen far and wide.
After the climb out of Oberneuching, there was a field with mustard with broken flowers. Well, the wind is likely to be there more often here and the temperatures are correspondingly low.After Holzhausen, I cycled right after the FTO through the fields to Ottenhofen. Normally you have a great view here, of course everything was cloudy here today. But at least, here a racing cyclist came towards me, I wasn't the only crazy one. Later I even met a couple ...Originally I wanted to cycle home via Wifling, but then I spontaneously cycled via Ottenhofen to Unterschwillach. I took Sonnendorf and Breitötting with me and then went home via Kirchötting and Berg.Although the weather was pretty much the worst thing for cycling (after all, it didn't rain), it was good to exercise in the fresh air. And you could just pursue a few fleeting thoughts, undisturbed by the lack of a view.Less pretty: The bike looked like I had ridden straight through deep mud. I hadn't really noticed that while cycling myself.The toes were of course terribly cold again and I am now quite sure that there will be a pair of winter cycling shoes under the Christmas tree. I just hope we can continue cycling, the current Corona announcements for the next few weeks sound a little different. With a lot of luck we can at least cycle alone, like in spring. A second madman would be difficult to find anyway ...

Today it took a bit of effort to get on my bike. The prospects were chilly with quite a good easterly wind. But not cycling at all on the weekend is somehow not a nice option either. So we went for a little round on the bike.This time I decided to do the classic southern circuit again. It was already really fresh on the Lange Feldstrasse, so I was still wondering whether it was really such a good idea. But after a few kilometers the temperatures weren't that bad anymore, things went pretty well. Especially since the sun came out here, everything looked a bit warmer in the reddish autumn light.
Today there were many herons to see and I think I saw a stork at the level of Sonnendorf. After all, someone is supposed to occupy the nest in Sonnendorf, who probably didn't feel like traveling further south ...In Unterschwillach I cycled the flat round through the railway tunnel. Here the wind came from behind, the sun from the front, that was actually quite pleasant.Only when the sun disappeared behind the clouds did it feel much cooler and the missing colors plunged everything into a somewhat dreary backdrop. When the frosty wind came from the front, it also got a bit uncomfortable. Temperatures also went down to -2 ° C.Fortunately, the sun came out again on the climb over Kreiling and bathed everything in bright colors again, the field mustard shone, the bee friend was also delighted with its color, only the sunflowers were now completely dried up. Then there were the dark clouds in the north, which provided nice photos.So the ascent to Neuharting was actually quite bearable with a headwind and from then on the bike ran very well on the ridge on a slight slope. With the speed it got colder again and the east wind came from the side, but was still quite fresh.From Hallnberg it went through the fields with a tail wind to Hörlkofen, from there to Ringelsdorf and finally I cycled via Neuhausen and Ammersdorf to the Feldberg. Then it went on the farm road parallel to the B388 and then past the Altwasser back to Altenerding.That was a nice tour, the temperatures were more bearable than expected, only my toes were quite cold after 2 hours. It's time to get me some winter cycling shoes. But I feel like DB: Winter always comes as a surprise towards the end of November ...

Today the sun was shining again and it was even significantly warmer than yesterday, so you just have to get on your bike ...This time I chose the south, once again in the foothills of the Alps. The beginning was the usual, I only drove around Wimpasing and then from Forstinning to Ebersberg.In the summer I wanted to cycle the route once, so I thought the path through the forest would be nice and shady in the heat. But that was a mistake, he was fully in the sun. I built on that today. But that was again a mistake, the sun was already further and deeper than I arrived, the bike path was completely in the shade. The temperatures also went down from 6 ° C to 1 ° C. It is still a good 8 km long straight, so not very varied, but a slight, almost minimal climb. That wasn't so ideal, but it got all the nicer afterwards.This time I cycled through Ebersberg, although the ascent in the middle of the village surprised me a bit: It is quite neat. The following piece via Oberndorf (I had just turned in front of the church) was beautiful again and from Traxl it was simply beautiful. There were wide, green meadows and fields, the Alps can be seen in the background and there was no disturbing traffic. That's how I like it :-) On top of that, it went downhill ...Shortly after Emmering it went idyllically through the fields to Pfaffing, via Forsting and Ebrach to Zell and from there to Kalteneck. Somehow I've never managed to test the beer garden there, something always came up, be it celebrations, rest days, vacations, Corona, ... Maybe it will work out next spring.The drive at Sankt Christoph was good again, but in fact it was quite good, I was a bit cool by now. The route before along the forest was a bit frosty, the hoarfrost at the edge of the path gave an indication.I didn't want the hilly way back via Mittbach and Pemmering today, so I avoided the path that Effe had shown me last time. At Graben it went left, a little up the hill and through the forest to the main road. At Birkach it went under the B12 on the cycle path and from there it went quite well to Hohenlinden.After Preisendorf it went left to Karlsdorf and on to Pastetteten. There I turned back at the vet and took the little dangling with me to then turn off in front of the church towards Zeilern. The rest of the way from Unterschwillach was the same route as on the way there.A beautiful stretch and surprisingly flat for the south. I just wonder where the 30 meters difference in altitude come from ...Apart from the hoar frost, the pictures also look a lot warmer and it was mostly quite pleasant to cycle. It wasn't until the end that I got a bit cold, but I can live with that. The late autumn also has an advantage: No insects! They just don't taste good ...
