☀️☀️☀️ since sunrise (-2ºC) there is a bright blue sky. There is no excuse to leave the bike in the cellar. So we take the S-Bahn from central station to Neu Wulmsdorf to leave the city behind us.
Immediately we go into the ascent to Hasselbrack, the path changes in stages of asphalt over gravel, sand and stones to morass and roots. After a beautiful, slightly sloping root route, we leave the planned path, as it was really more suitable for the bridle path. We drive only 150 meters past the Hasselbrack but could look down on it from the highest point of the route from Lower Saxony with 117 meters ...
After a nice descent, it goes back up to the game park and then past the museum village Kiekeberg down to Harburg. At the Außenmühlenteich there's the obligatory hot chocolate and then we take the S-Bahn from Harburg to the main station. The last kilometers through the city we roll comfortably in the 🌕-light home.

... we stay in the West today.
We "cruise" with emerging sunshine on green paths east of the A7 direction Norderstedt / Quickborn and then hit us west to Wulfsmühle. After a short refreshing we go back to the south, from Ellerbek we drive unfortunately always along the road to Krupunder lake (here we have to choose an alternative route for the next time) and from there on quiet side roads back to Langenfelde.

Reformation Day - therefore we begin our tour at the Protestant church in Langenfelde and start in the most beautiful sunshine in the west. Passing the Poseidon Bad go on well-known "secret paths" through Eidelstedt and Halstebek direction Pinneberg. We reach the Klövensteen from the north and cross this beautiful forest on the south course, we look into the deer enclosure, but refrain us a rest in the (completely overcrowded) Wadschenke. We go through cracks to make the "descent" to the Elbe behind the beacon Tinsdal coal power plant. Now we enjoy the warm sun in the back on the way to Hamburg (like countless walkers ...). We let ourselves be tempted to take a break at "Dill sin Döns" - the only mistake on our tour - the service is overwhelmed with today's onslaught and the waiting time is so long that we cool off slowly. In the meantime, the sun has sunk so far that passing ships immerse us in the cold shade.
Let's go in the direction of Teufelsbrück and then on the second green ring back to Langenfelde - hopefully we will be a bit warmer on the rise again. When we arrive in Langenfelde it is already dark and a beautiful crescent moon has taken the position of the sun, on the streets appear the first Halloween monsters. Trick or treat!
