Last night I tested my newly acquired lamp. Cateye G VOLT 70.1It can even be mounted under my SP Connect holder with the included bracket. However, constant shaking loosened the small Allen screw with which it is attached. The lamp has to go directly to the handlebars on gravel tours. But it is more or less an undermount lamp. Luminosity, width and spread fit so far. If you don't want to ride in the wall at night.

Actually, I wanted to drive the Berlin orbit this Saturday. Or at least try. But since very good friends had announced themselves for Saturday afternoon in the middle of the week, I postponed the project for a week and planned a morning round.
I then allowed myself to ride a gravel lap northeast of Berlin by Juliane Schumacher alias Radelmädchen. So I got up again at 6 a.m. to be at the start at the Werneuchen station at 7:30 a.m. at the latest. So I gravel regularly. But these 60 kilometers were really tough. Via the Werneuchen airfield we went to Hirschfelde, where this beautiful statue is located. And from there directly over an ugly cobblestone path (unfortunately that is also Gravel) directly into the forest and ... bääääm. The demand rose rapidly. The first highlight was the Gamengrund with its 3 lakes. I think that is also the 66 lakes hiking trail. Besides a few cyclists who pitched their tents on some beaches and enjoyed their coffee, I was the only one there. The route along the lake was just as beautiful as it was demanding. Back to civilization I went via Leuenberg and from there on the country road, where I was able to pick up speed again and have recovered a little, to Steinbeck. After Steinbeck I left public life again to devote myself to the next challenging trails. Pure nature and not a soul. Via an old tank road it went in to Harnekop, through Harnekop, again a piece of road and over a partly sandy (regularly climb and push) dirt road to Haselberg. The tour leads to a certain point and then back again. I didn't know what the point was. I thought of a nice vantage point. What was waiting for me instead? A nice farm shop with a cafe and snack bar. Hofcafe Haselberg.
the host was already in the gate and asked me what it should be. you have to say; the cafe doesn't actually open until 2 p.m. I got a coffee anyway. And since the lady of the house wasn't finished with the cakes, there were some delicious cookies. And a chat with the owner. He told me about the origins of this cafe and I told him how I came across it. The cyclist was obviously sitting here too. after only 10 minutes it was the same way back to Harnekop. However, I was now crossing the whole place. Back at Panzerstraße, the tour actually led along the banks of the Schloßsee. But exactly there was a private property with an expensive villa under construction. At this point I have to contact Juliane. Because I took the detour over the country road. This then to Prötzel, where there was also a well-frequented farm shop. But I left it on the right. Behind Prötzel then directly into the forest. Wolf territory. Huuuaaaah. But nobody came. Only one doe came across the path behind a tree in front of me. It was a very impressive sight for me as a city dweller. The rest of the way was without any particular highlights, but still mega beautiful and challenging. Shortly before Hirschfelde it started to rain heavily. No matter. Only water.
my bike and i looked very good. Unfortunately, the petrol station in Werneuchen did not have any washing boxes. Which is why I had to throw my battered bike in the car. In the marzahn it got its well-deserved shower.Conclusion of the tour:1. Good attunement to orbit. And that was only 60 kilometers now.

One thing in advance. This distance is good for the ego. not more.
my real goal was Templin. The rest ... bonus.
Better short distances. Linger more often for that.The tour led almost exclusively over the best asphalt, to a large extent through the forest and at least as far as Templin almost always off the road. The cycle path along the west bank of the Werbelinsee is a dream. On a considerable stretch even 5-6 meters to the left across the street. From Templin, the cycle path led along the road, but separated from it. And very smooth.the bang came at the end of the tour. The police stopped me 100 meters before Oranienburg station because I was on the wrong side.
He then asked me why I was doing this. He can't understand that. Although I acted illegally according to the StVO, I only thought:
"Give me the damn ticket and leave me alone.Well, € 15. I didn't care.
The man is only doing his duty.Was a wonderful tour.
A little less next time. Linger more for that.
