Um mich fit zu halten und die Natur zu genießen, fahre ich gern Tourenrad - seit neuestem auch mit "Elektro-Mofa". Auch mehrtägige Streckentouren stehen auf dem Programm. Hier auf dem komoot-Portal findet man eine kleine Auswahl. Näheres über Urlaubstouren findet ihr auf meinem Blog.
Today the HAIBIKE used as a pure E-MTB in home regions: On the ridge path towards Hildesheimer Börde and beyond to the A7 bridge for forest and forest traffic. It used to be about our 20 km running training course.
The ridge path was surprisingly easy to drive. Hardly any rhizomes and few bumps. It probably looks different after wet weather.

Today a tour to the Hohe Tafel, at 395 m the highest point in the Seven Mountains between Brüggen and Alfeld.
I knew the mountain with the tower from various hikes. Now for the first time with the e-bike. The ascent from Eberholzen was easy to ride. With the exception of the last steep trails to the tower, level 2 (tour) was enough for a speed of 13 km / h. The subsoil was almost entirely coarse but firm gravel. The roadsides were overgrown in many places with tall nettles. Still: I wouldn't ride these routes without an e-bike. That is left to the young mountain bike and gravel friends. They can then set up their bivouac right upstairs.
The view from the tower into the Leinebergland is good. One has the view from the Calenberger Land and Osterwald in the north to the Ithwiesen / Hils in the west / southwest. Alfeld cannot be seen. Likewise, the direction of view to the east (Harz foreland) is blocked by trees.
Back the same way down to Eberholzen, because the tour shouldn't be too long because of the heat. I will soon test the descent from the tower to Brüggen or Rheden.

Despite the great heat, a small Leinebergland tour to Bruchsee with some friends from the sports club.
The kiosk spaces were not yet overcrowded around 12 noon, so nothing stood in the way of a short break. On the other hand, the bathing area was understandably as busy as the Baltic Sea. So the planned bathroom unfortunately failed.
Instead, an ice cream at the end of the tour at Eiscafe Da Ros Gronau.

"As much shade as possible ..." was the motto in today's heat. That's why I looked for a new forest trail through the forewood to Wöhler Berg and found something passable. On the open stretch between Wöhle / Nettlingen and SZ-Lichtenberg, I met a refreshing wind from the east. On the ascent to the Lichtenberg castle ruins, I was happy to have the e-bike support.
The ridge path of the Elber Berg could become one of my favorite trails. Since the way between Oelber and Wartjenstedt was closed because of the underground cable laying, I had to drive via Rhene and came to the really idyllic NSG "Mittleres Innerstetal" near Binder. This trail is sure to be a bit bumpy to ride, but is signposted as a local bike path. From Holle then the last part through the Innerstetal to Hildesheim - unfortunately without any shade.

Ridden the first tour of the Harz Mountains with the e-bike today. The start and finish was Langelsheim. I've ridden the routes in a different way with the normal touring bike, so there weren't any big surprises on the schedule. I also know the area around Hahnenklee, Clausthal-Zellerfeld and Buntenbock well from cross-country skiing in winter.
The ascent over the Granetalsperre to Hahnenklee is actually easy to drive. The best way to get from Hahnenklee to Zellerfeld is by road. Also to the Entensumpf car park with the Innerstequelle. Then you follow the Innersteradweg. Since the 27 km from Buntenbock to Langelsheim are practically only downhill, you shouldn't worry as an e-bike driver if the battery level at Buntenbock is only 40%.
The many vacationers on the hiking trails in the Harz were really striking. COVID-19 has something positive for Harz tourism.

In contrast to the long stage yesterday only 40 km to the next hotel. As a small challenge to start the way up to Kipfenberg Castle, which unfortunately was still closed before 10 a.m.
The rest was good to drive and because of the shortness of the route there was even a refreshing dip in the Pfraundorfer See near Katzmühle.

Here is the 3rd stage of our Altmühl tour. It is only from this stage that the highlights of the cycle path with the Altmühl Valley Nature Park come into their own.
Unfortunately, the recording in Eichstätt has ended (possibly an operator error). We drove further to our hotel in Kipfenberg, so that it was 84 km in total.
