      .... that's the motto today. Chilli peppers and Hawaiian shirt combined to create a blue pot. If you are already there, then the special book Steige attracts with its 7-9%. So up and shooting from Wippingen to Blaustein. Towards the end a bit fresh on the leg, but very enchanting.

      After the weather forecast for Saturday announced rain and strong winds, we decided to head for the Alb to Laichingen in the afternoon. The first kilometers went wonderfully, a little wind, a little snow but good hardtail terrain. Then from Bühlenhausen on the Alb plateau a nasty headwind and completely icy paths. In particular, the now paved bike paths were mirrored (unfortunately there was no alternative route up here due to the time). But get the camp, washed the bike and warmed up with a coffee. In view of the advanced time, however, we went back with the four-in-hand ;-).

      The morning was supposed to stay dry, I only had faint memories of the Ammersee, we also had a voucher from the fisherman, so what could be more natural than to take a look at the lake. It doesn't get any nicer.

      After yesterday's adventure, there was only one lightning lap today (okay with photo stops and branches). Same bike but slippery outfit. It also blew heavily from the west and so it was a perfect wind tunnel test. Awesome view of the Alps included. Back then took a few slippery trunks and branches from the trail (whoever put them there) and boarded them back.

      In the course of slowly approaching old habits, the hardtail was carried out. The high fog later gave way to the sun and it was a delightful, slow lap. Then took a shortcut in the forest and the polished branch at a 45 ° angle to the direction of travel let the rear wheel find its own way. We were already lying on the forest floor. Of course, on the familiar side of grief. But nothing happens and we go on. Whereby I stayed on more civilized ways / trails. It is time to adjust the rear tires to the weather conditions ;-).

      After I had been abstinent from species-appropriate mountain biking for a long time due to an accident, the weather must obviously have clouded my brain today. It went over tame trails to the most technical descent in the vicinity. Leaves, roots, stones, steps, loose ground and steep. Awesome shit actually. Today then hesitantly, hesitating, trail walk. In the upper part the foliage swept aside and down, stop, look, roll up, back, again and down. In the middle of the trail then old friends, downhillers met (on the uphill) and chatted. Then sweaty and ready to go to the gas station and a cappuccino with ice cream and croissant (the ice cream parlor was closed !!). Relaxed again with a view of the blue and then let the tour end in the woods and on easier trails and paths. It will be again when the head is clearer. Hence "it's just a phase rabbit" 😉PS: In between the tracker failed, hence the "beeline".

      I've been thinking a little about how to cycle my post. After Hamburg and Spain it was just too far today. So what could be more obvious than to connect me to Spain via the Camino de Santiago. Coincidentally, it goes through Ulm and part of it is designated as a cycle pilgrimage route. With that the goal - the pilgrim hostel ( and pilgrimage church in Oberdischingen was clear. Off to the gravel bike - the faithful chilli pepper - and off for it. True to the motto "Heroes in tights", drive quickly with mandatory photo stops. A fine, typical sawtooth profile did not make the journey monotonous. The pilgrim path went up and down - logical, since the churches were all on a mountain above the Danube - and then the stone pilgrims greeted the well. A look at the horizon, Lake Constance, Einsiedeln, Le Puy, Santiago di Compostela and Fisterra appeared before my eyes. I've been to all places, but never in one piece and as a pilgrim ...... My thoughts travel to Spain, stay safe Ana. The old Irish blessing comes to mind: "May the paths smooth out at your feet, may you have the wind behind you. And until we meet again, and until we meet again, may God hold his protective hand over you." We had last heard it before our motorcycle trip through Africa. Memories and the present mingle, I have the church to myself and I give myself up to my thoughts. I am glad that Ana is better and I hope for further recovery. If you want to donate, you will find a link on your Instagram page ( I get on my bike again and glide over streets, paths and paths back to Ulm until I see the cathedral again. Stay safe.

      After I was mountain biking with the gravel bike yesterday, I was graveling with the mountain bike today. At the beginning an urban industrial area with nature. Komorane next to high-voltage lines, a lone stork on the freshly plowed field (probably a hibernating fellow - the little white point on the field photo), eggs and pumpkin in Unterweiler and off into the forest. New and familiar alternated, leisurely cycling through the autumn forests. A couple of mushrooms for a long time, as always no basket with me. Back through the villages with a stop at the southern part of the well-known discounter and through the industrial area back with a final ascent. This time really relaxed cycling.

      The training plan was actually only one hour of easy driving. Okay, off to Blaubeuren, nice on asphalt and tested the new pants and jersey right away. So much in advance, the jersey quickly flew into the saddlebag and the MTB hoodie came out. Born in Japan and made in Italy, the sleeves are way too short. On through the now wonderfully brightly colored blue valley. This cannot actually be reproduced with the camera. I tried anyway. Then I started to get bored somehow, otherwise I can not explain why I climbed the ridge over the eastern flank and then drove down the tame trail. Okay, so quickly stopped by a bike shop, the second one was closed, but this one didn't have a DUB bottom bracket for my beloved fully either. Then the flying bicycle dealer brings it with the yellow cars (the other shops near Ulm also had nothing). Off to the bakery Beck, coffee and a gingerbread (the latter for later) and some pictures taken in Blaubeuren. A child shouted at the blue pot that he didn't care about his mother and bucked behind a tree. Yes, the dear little ones. We weren't any different either. If I'm already here and the hour of training was over, then I could cycle up the steep path. So off for it and up. At the top, the airfield and then the Blaufels beckoned and it was a trail round. I was a little nervous, it was the beloved chilli pepper and not a MTB. Leaves, stones and roots as well as a light dampness from the storm the last few days. The paths were clear and I was already on the blue. Photo stop and then down. Here I took the wrong turn and carried my lovely bike for a few meters. When it went again, I surprisingly came out again on the Sonderbucher Steige - much to the amazement of the hikers. A friendly greeting and no, I can't go uphill - back to the Blautopf. Well, what can I say, up again and down again and again ..... you guessed it. Cyclocross somehow, especially since a few trees were in the way now. A short sprint over the federal road with very considerate drivers (seriously) and back to the blue. I could go over the mountain now, right? Let's go. From there on, the pants from the above-mentioned manufacturer pinched the hollow of the knee, the seams moved upwards, but it doesn't matter, the shoes (MTB, this time ridden on the platform side of the pedals) were lightly lined and kept me warm, so the pinching does too nothing. In the opposite direction, a sprinter with a time trial helmet and then the grenade descent. All hikers were on the right side, the WTB tires howled, record drive, 60 are through, speed increasing, warp ....... no, an old Ferengi freighter stopped me, uh no, a Starnberge Golf, shortly before the counter climb, f ..... k. Slowed down a bit, the car gives way, out of the saddle and past. The luck only lasted for a short time, the counter climb has it all. A mountain biker from the right, he courageously pulls past me, the tight, short-armored calves show every fiber, 20 meters in front of me, the distance is shortened, the ascent becomes flatter and overii. Well, how is it? Then over the Hochstrasse back to Ulm and stopped briefly at the next bakery. It was nice.

      Actually, an orbit should be made up for today - namely the Votec Warp. Is nearby, Sigmaringen is easy to reach and in terms of time it should be feasible in daylight / twilight. But in the morning the world was a plain gray. At low single-digit temperatures, the prospect is not all that tempting - especially since the famous pedaling gravel equipment supplier does not have the winter clothing you want in stock. So rescheduled, across the Alb to Gutenstein like the other day, just on a different route. So I set out in the late morning in the capital of the Nebelreich and graveled over the Hochstrasse in MTB pants and MTB hoodie with a tight-fitting windbreaker and clicked into the Lutheran mountains. Leaving out the Schmiechener See, over wide gravel and asphalt to Allmendingen to the first steep ascent. It should go on like this. Up and down for almost 30 kilometers. The feet adapted to the environment in terms of temperature (overcoats would be an idea), the rest was sweaty and the nasty descent on the Lichse was not a pleasure either (I'm not quite on you and you with the clipless pedals). Then I had the first part of the fog mountains behind me and came into a lovely valley. Now almost 10 kilometers of glorious sunshine followed, but the gray swaths of the always damp (Alb) rainforest waved from the horizon. So immersing myself again, albeit in a better mood, I had gotten warm. The fog stood on the Lauter and did not leave me for a long time. But no chance to cool down, 14% up to the special book and on to Loretto, coffee and cake as a reward was the idea. A few dozen others had the same in the citizen's cage and so the corona-compliant snakes from the farm shop and café touched each other. Then just a goat photo and on, my cheesecake, baked yesterday and today driven ahead, was waiting for me in Gutenstein. But not too fast - although, it went to Zwiefalten with a maximum of 65 - maybe it looks better at the monastery, at least a coffee would be good. But the same picture. So I ate the second bar in front of the monastery portal, a sip of chilled water from the bottle and on to the next ascent towards Upflamör, which was first mentioned in a document around 1060 (according to the announcement of a local history lecture on the notice board of the Zwiefalten monastery). It should be mentioned here that despite all the legends, the name is not of Scandinavian origin. Relaxed 8% were announced on the sign and up. Shortly before Upflamör, turn left into the forest and whistle down the asphalt path, but a little more cautiously, as the local population likes to use these paths and does not expect crazy cyclists (although they may already have a thing or two (cyclists I mean)). Then leaving the road I turn into the Friedinger Valley and meet two hikers. A friendly greeting and I cycle on, suppressing an urgent need (I can't jump behind a tree here). Then this wonderful refuge appears. Bike in, clothes (i.e. windbreaker and hoodie) taken off and into the bushes. Since I was graveling, logically, as a long-term optimist, I didn't wear liner shorts but BIB shorts (could have been warmer). Stupid with the porters. I get a deeper understanding of all female cyclists. What drunk and on. A little later the sun breaks through again and the fog is gone. Friedingen, Bingen (a small festival with a delicious sausage smell) and finally Sigmaringen. A full bank of the Danube and numerous pedelec groups with wide handlebars and mirrors mounted on them came towards me. The voluminous gentlemen who met me next to each other from Inzigkofen were a bit bold. While I kicked the felt 25% up (38/42) they looked irritated and probably expected that I would move to the goats in the bushes. But I was up there quickly, down again just as quickly, and it became quieter on the Danube. Before you know it, the magic of the discolored leaves reflecting in the smooth Danube catches you and you are completely delighted. The last hour was a frenzy driving anyway. Great. But, in Gutenstein, my back mucked for a moment and my knee twitched while I was writing this. But how does it say when you wake up in the morning and nothing hurts you are dead 😜. The last ascent to the castle was no longer a problem and a little later it was cheesecake time.
