Last day of vacation, therefore slightly shorter tour.
Fairly foggy and cold below (almost -4 ° C) on the Kalmit almost 0 ° C and some rain, but nice panorama because of the inversion weather with clouds and fog.
Trail up to Kalmit tricky, because of the roots, either greasy ground or frozen stiff, if you want to hike up there better hands out of your pockets and not get on the roots ...
Trail from the Hohe Loog to the Speierheld Hütte down really good to drive, but not for beginners, or just dismount and push if it gets too bad, but absolutely cool descent :-)

Today it was "really" cold, the trails were sometimes very soapy and sometimes frozen, so more forest highway before there was unwanted ground contact :-).
According to Garmin, the Kommot data is somehow wrong, but I don't care, the main thing is "something" done.
In terms of clothes and equipment, the chaff separates from the wheat relatively quickly when biking (either you freeze or you don't ...).
My Lupine bike lamp and the low temperatures have brought my battery to my knees faster than usual (despite ECO mode except on the STD trails), so this time the last 3 kilometers were "organic biking", which was 22.5kg and 2.8 "tires is absolutely not a pony farm :-). Still a nice tour, but above all quiet.
However, the hot shower felt like today's highlight!

Have the trip compensated yesterday, get out early, then works well with the peace in the forest. The castle is currently lit in orange / red, but only until 7.30am, I have discovered a charging station shortly before the parking lot and I could not resist ..., Auf'm Loog is a lighted (Christian) tree, is certainly beautiful there with mulled wine, if it dawns at 16 o'clock, I am now glad to have mounted the (visually rather polarizing) fenders, so keep my saddle and pants longer, because the sand does not so schmurgelt, and the seat pad does not give way (I need nothing to say what that feels like at <5 ° C). When it's warm again, they'll come back. Otherwise it was cold, but nice.

Finally found the time to dedicate my helmet lamp, set wrong the cone of light was too close to the front wheel, otherwise blatantly bright, from Hahnenschritt parking very foggy, I'm only driven to the tree because despite lamps only 5-10m visibility was. "Safety-First", that's why I left again.

Short tour to the car park Hambacher castle, still fast during the week clothes for autumn weather for our daughter concerned, unfortunately the -1 ° C and the fog were stronger and she has unfortunately started to freeze. We went back home, but still a nice tour, also for them, and maybe (hopefully) the beginning for more joint dad / daughter tours.

Ich bin 2017 nach 11 Jahren Bio-MTB auf E-MTB umgestiegen und drehe nun meine Runden vor allem hier in meinem Hausgebiet um Neustadt/Wstr. und manchmal mit Kollegen, an Orten an denen sich die Möglichkeit ergibt 😊.
Wenn machbar wandern mit der Familie...
Bei Komoot seit 2019.
