Immer auf der Suche nach neuen Trails - Es gibt viel zu entdecken abseits der Hauptstraßen.
The last tour felt like a long time ago. The spontaneous round to Grimma was a lot of fun - the weather that day was excellent for cycling, even if it cools down significantly in the evening.Past the Völkerschlachtdenkmal via Nauenhof to Grimma. Along the Mulderadweg to Trebsen and back to Leipzig. Since I was too lazy to change tires 😅 the route was mostly on asphalt. Perfect for the racing bike. 🚴🏼♂️💨🍂

Small spontaneous trip to Halle. Who would have thought that there could be a temperature drop of 13 degrees in the middle of summer ... I never did. 🥶 I felt like I was in a car wash ... only without the deluxe program. After I had showered once and the wind blown me dry again, the sun finally showed up again. So the best weather in Halle. Then we went back via Leipzig-Halle Airport - somehow I still had a headwind, no matter which direction I was driving ... wonderful. 😅 In itself a nice tour but if you are limited to asphalt it is sometimes not fun on the main roads with all the cars.

After I filled my stomach early at the bakery around the corner and pumped myself full of caffeine, I went back to Leipzig on the fourth day. Along the Elbe, this time on the eastern side, I drove to Riesa - what a great landscape and completely different from the west bank! From then on it was a bit difficult with the bike paths. I used the tail wind over hill and dale and made very good progress until I had to turn. 🌬🚴🏼♂️🙈 From Wurzen on, familiar terrain again, the mishmash of bike paths and roads annoyed me a bit at the end, but good. All in all, it was a small, fine tour through Saxony. 👌🏻🏞

On to Dresden. After checking the weather early in the morning, I drove on the third day of my tour from Chemnitz via Oederan to Freiberg. Wonderful, these small villages off the main roads. Shortly after Freiberg, the thunderstorm caught up with me and I had to stay on a covered bench for over an hour. Going further was out of the question with the masses of water. Streets turned into streams in minutes. 😳 After all the lightning bolts had fired, it went on for me too. At a fresh 16 degrees, I made my way through beautiful forests - do you know that when it smells of pines and firs - too cool, on the way to Freital. The United Weisseritz showed me the way to Dresden and so I followed the river until I had to turn right towards the old town. In the hotel there was first a good shower - a lot of dirt in the forest and elsewhere. 😄 If you don't want to avoid climbs, you will experience a nice tour. 🤙🏻

If you have ever been in the mountains you have to take the chance. So on the second day of my tour of Saxony I drove to Geyer, or rather to Geyer's pond. It was way too warm that day but it doesn't matter, the tour doesn't drive itself after all. 😅 The steep climbs hit me hard in the warmth, so the relaxed paths around Geyer were all the more beautiful - a dream for every cyclist and hikers. I was probably not the only one who took advantage of the great weather. And if you think it can't get any higher there is an increase that never ends. 🙈 The bottles filled up quickly and then downhill through beautiful coniferous forests. Past Scharfenstein Castle, I followed the route back to Chemnitz. A short detour to the castle pond was a must.

Last weekend I drove to Chemnitz in fantastic temperatures. Past the Cospuden and Hainer lakes, the route led me through small forests and dusty slopes towards Frohburg. Partly crisp climbs took a toll on me in the hot temperatures and so I treated myself to an ice cream in Penig ... I also refilled water bottles right away. 🥵 In the last quarter of the route you clearly notice the rise in the terrain, even if it is not the Alps, but as a newcomer you quickly get used to the flatlands. 😅

If a buddy says there's beer at the lake, I won't be asked, of course. 😅 Perfect for testing the new slippers on the bike. There aren't really any pictures this time because I didn't have the camera with me. 🙈 If you want to follow the loop watch out for bumps on the bike paths around the lakes - sometimes a disaster. 😖Conclusion: The Pirellis Cinturato in 32mm at 4 bar tubeless are excellent on the road and easy gravel paths - also on cyclocross. 😍👌🏻

Perhaps not quite well thought out yesterday to the Geiseltalsee at chubby temperatures (36 degrees). This time with less gravel, but with more water consumption. 😛💦 The route initially ran along an old railway line that had been converted into a cycle path. Here you can "shoot" for miles until your legs burn. 😄 We went on to the sundial on the Geiseltalsee - watch comparison. After a short break at the Mücheln vineyard, I really scurried back to Leipzig. The route later led back to home on LPG trails, with the great sunset behind, on the Saale-Leipzig Canal. 🚴🏼♂️💨

Between sightseeing and speed rides - spontaneous circuit around Lake Kulkwitzer with a detour to the Leipzig cycle track.In the best weather, we alternated between asphalt and gravel towards Kulki. Where do all the many people come from when the sun shines? 😅 In addition to the finest bike trails around the lake there are also wonderful technical trails through the forest, great variety to the buzz on the road. 😬 On the way to the racetrack, we went through maize fields on LPG paths - a dream to “engrave”. I keep discovering new parts of Leipzig, even if they are just around the corner. 💪🏻Have a nice Sunday.
