About Silvo 📷📃nl

Ik fiets bijna elke week op een droge dag ca 70km. Vaak eerst een uurtje in de auto en daarna een ronde fietsen. Met Komoot plan ik een route langs opmerkelijke objecten: natuur, industrie, cultuur. Hier en daar plan ik ook lichamelijke uitdagingen: bergop, tegenwind, bospad en eenvoudig MTB-traject.
Onderweg fotografeer ik veel en zoek thuis de bijzonderheden op. Dat deel ik meestal op Komoot en op FB. Foto's krijgen bijna altijd een begeleidende tekst. Foto's die al veelvuldig online te vinden zijn hoef ik niet meer te maken. Ik fiets graag in Nederlandse landschappen en door dorpjes. Het Duitse Ruhrgebiet bezoek ik graag en dan drink ik het liefst koffie bij een kiosk en een bier in een eenvoudig café-restaurant. Ik woon in Didam en kom oorspronkelijk uit Bocholtz (L). Sinds het najaar van 2019 speur ik online steenbergen (Bergehalden) op en probeer ze de dag erna fietsend op te komen. Ik heb ze bijna alle driehonderd (!) gehad. Wil je een uitgebreide lijst met Halden in het Ruhrgebiet, incl coördinaten, stuur me een email: s@gloerich.nl
Op 7 jan 2020 heb ik een hersenbloeding gehad die me gelukkig niet tot een wrak heeft gemaakt. Ik ben in maart 2020 weer op de fiets gestapt. omdat ik daarvan wonderwel goed ben opgeknapt, lukt het weer om die 70 km op de fiets te rijden.
Tot augustus 2020 heb ik 293 Halden bezocht in of bij het Ruhrgebiet.

      At first I thought it was going to be hot. But for the first half, the sun barely comes through the veil clouds. Photographing along the way is disappointing, although that is made up for a bit in Issum. Today I want to drink an ALT but I can't find a pleasant terrace in Kamp-Lintfort and I finally cycle on to Issum. There I get the same setback at a Pizzeria opposite the Diebels brewery. There's a sign outside: DIEBELS Alt, but they don't sell it. Later it turns out that I also have an ordinary pilsner in the bottle. I don't see the light color because beer glasses “always broke there”, I can get a cardboard cup. This is where some of the prejudices of Turks converge, but I do not express them. Well, that beer was pretty good, and the food too. (79 km)

      On this day I left Annelies with a former teacher of hers. In the meantime, I casually visit the Natural History Museum and look for the bicycle. A beer in Wijck will eventually succeed. Much later I will pick up Annelies again

      The mining history in South Limburg has almost been erased. But for the good viewer, the mining mountains have not all been excavated and can be climbed. And that is not easy today. My legs are not so good, and the stonebergs that are still there are not easy either. Then I am glad that you cannot get on it with the normal bicycle. In between, I also pass through Kerkrade and visit my old HBS school again. (Annelies' teacher she will be going to tomorrow also worked there in my time, although I don't remember anything) I already knew that the new building we moved to in my third grade had almost completely disappeared after thirty years. two gymnasiums (gym halls in my memory) are still there and are also still in use. I also knew that I could not really see anything back from the mine stone mountain of the ON I, because, after leveling off, an entire residential area was built on it. That is the mine where I did an aboveground mechanical engineering internship. You can still find Halden from the other Oranje-Nassau mines. Annelies' father had to deal with this, as a mining engineer but also as a councilor…. The mountain of Willem-Sophie where I cycled daily for seven years on my way to the HBS, has burned for years and has now largely been sold as red gravel for tennis courts. You can hardly see anything of the greyness of that time… Limburg now has other industries and remembers the miners of that time in a few monuments.

      93 km. Except for three, they've had about all of them now; the mining mountains in the Ruhrgebiet. More than 300 together. If I had known I would never have started it and now that I have had almost all of them I do not know what to visit now. With time a solution will be found…. You can see from the many little and softly curved or even straight lines and on the map that I have visited many continuous cycle tracks. The Sesekeweg is located between 7 and 10 and between 3 and 9 is an old railway line that runs smoothly. The whole area is only slightly sloping; in South Limburg you will have to make more effort. You don't meet that many people on a weekday either. The school holidays are over and I ended up in an outgoing high school. I did "Ting, ting" all the time so as not to mess up. The advantage there is that it is more rural and that many more bicycle roads have been made. That makes a difference…. About 15 km before the end I start looking for a restaurant: I want a wheat beer and I want something to eat. I can't suddenly do that this time. I drink a beer first, Pott's in a Kneipe and later a Döner at a takeaway. The two can rarely be combined because there is often no beer in the cooler of a Döner. Although they do not have wheat beer in this Kneipe. But the dark Pott's beer tastes just as good. I don't come home until 10 in the evening.

      Today it is a bit cooler than the past few days. Then it was really too hot. But this afternoon I dare to go for a spin, although the sun continues to shine through the clouds. I looked up quite a few shadow roads so it was not too bad. A sheep lay on her back in a hot meadow, she was so shocked by me that she immediately straightened up again. When I got home there was a cool beer and there my daughter and her boyfriend were back from vacation on their way to Amsterdam.

      I must be able to withstand a heavy thunderstorm. but the promised mood does not come, on the other hand, it goes up and down continuously, endlessly. and then it turns out to be 85 km and I skipped a Halde. Yet this is a day of satisfaction. I came to a mountain of stone that was too inhospitable for me and I looked for an alternative when I ended up in a Kleingarten with giant blackberries: feast! A lady in the neighborhood confirmed that there was indeed access via that super narrow path. I left it at that. I took a photo from the bushes near her house. Elsewhere, a completely flat field appears to have the name of a Halde. Did I now drive 7 km twice? Finally, I end up in a snack bar with a delivery service and a large seating area. run by people from far away. Then you can hope they have beer there. Chilled and well I can even choose three types, a local, a general and a Heineken. the local has my preference. Then it is up again, to the Ikea 8 km. My car is there I hope ..... and yes, it is still there.

      Amersfoort - Utrecht, 60 km. Today it is still possible, tomorrow it will get really hot. From my babysitting children I leave at 10:30 am the route recommended by the Mondriaanmusuem. There I also get a map with descriptions. The first part cycles as a fast cycling route, but halfway (near Den Dolder) that turns into uncomfortable zigzagging. It is getting busier in Utrecht, but that changes again when I disappear to the east. When I cross the Kromme Rijn I drive a bit too far and turning around I end up in a small traffic jam. Fortunately, I can take the path next to it and via a zigzag fence, I find the next path. People neatly step aside when I call on time and receive thanks for that. After a kilometer such a fence and a path come up again. There I am stopped by a ranger on an e-bike who already says in the second sentence that this will be a ticket. Then there is a lot of angry roaring as I say that I have not seen the prohibition sign at all. The ticket remains about 64 euros… .. The annoying thing is that this keeps grinding in your head all the way through. You know that you have been wrong, but you also know that you simply have not seen anything. It is also annoying that you ask yourself afterwards at every path whether you are allowed to cycle there. The casualness has stopped. It will take several weeks before I get rid of that.
