      Tour through the southwest part of the Vercors. Everyone seems to be getting on their bikes this Saturday; I have seldom seen so many racing cyclists 🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲A very nice tour with great views, little traffic, lots of landscape and some nice climbs.A tip: it is better not to take the tour in this direction in a north wind, especially in Mistral. The ascent from Beaufort to the Col de Bacchus will be even more strenuous.Another tip: if you have the time, you should visit the Gorges d'Omblèzes.

      Excursion to Vercors with altitude meters!The impressive, fortress-like French pre-Alps offer a large number of tours. However, these are almost always associated with overcoming sometimes considerable differences in altitude.
      The highlights on the west side include the deeply cut river valleys that flow into the Royans: that of the Bourne and that of the Vernaison.
      Start this morning at the foot of the Col de Tourniol, via Saint-Nazaire and Pont-en-Royans with its "hanging" houses. Just above Sainte-Eulalie follows the road carved into the rock, known as "Petits Goulets". The “Grand Goulets” located further up are unfortunately closed, the trips at the end of the 1990s are only memories. The almost two kilometer long tunnel is not a highlight for cycling, even if cars and trucks are instructed to watch out for cyclists.Instead, the landscape opens up just above the tunnel. I chose the smaller road D103 and not the D518 via Chapelle-en-Vercors. There is almost no traffic here, there are great views of the mountain range to the east. The detour to the Col de Rousset is not necessary, but it is done quickly with a few additional meters. But there is an incredible panorama of the Diois up to the Mont Ventoux as soon as you have reached the Belvédère after the tunnel. Above the pass, there are two via ferratas with spectacular views of the region.Vassieux-en-Vercors is best known for the memory of the French resistance during World War II. German soldiers committed numerous war crimes against the civilian population here in the summer of 1944. I recommend visiting the memorial above Vassieux.
      The ascent to Col de la Chau is crisp, while the descent on wide roads to the Font d’Urle ski area is easy. As far as Léoncel, the road meanders through the forest without great differences in altitude, and apart from the area around the Col de la Bataille, unfortunately, almost without any views. The surface there is rough and wavy, my buttocks complained several times in between. The ascent to the Col de la Bataille still has some places with 8%.

      After the fall last week, I am sitting in the saddle for the first time - caution (fear?) Goes with me.The beginning of the annual stay in France is a morning tour up to the Col de Tourniol. The start is right in Barbières at the foot of the ascent; I notice after 1 km that I didn't have time to warm up. In the morning shortly after 7 a.m. there is almost no traffic, the street is still shady and cool. The increase of up to 8% is easier in the morning than in the afternoon when the sun is on the asphalt.The Col de Tourniol is followed by the journey from Léoncel to La Vacherie, then a short ascent and descent over the Col des Limouches.

      Small morning round, owed to the time on very deserted paths. Haze in many places due to recent rainfall.The tour was interrupted to the west of Zerpenschleuse by a fall on a root break. Then to Lehnitz with the grazes, and the rest exceptionally with the S-Bahn.

      “Anyone who climbs Mount Fuji is wise. Anyone who climbs it twice is a fool. "Today's tour goes around Berlin without touching the city area. Michael Geissler organized it for the ADFC. Arrival and departure to the virtual start and end in Hohenneuendorf are not counted. At 197 km, the circumnavigation is probably one of the shortest options.The nature factor is 2 out of 5, after all, you stay in the bacon and industrial belt almost the entire time. The tour often takes place on cycle paths alongside the road with a lot of vehicle traffic on the road. The surface quality of the RVA is often only mediocre. The most beautiful section is still the northeast sector between Strausberg and Bernau, here the landscape is still comparatively natural.And so back to the Japanese saying about the entrance: you can do this tour once to cross it off the bucket list, but you don't necessarily have to repeat it.
      The new bike route AROUND BERLIN covers a wider range of 330 km around the capital - perhaps an alternative. Details: regionalparks-brandenburg-berlin.de/rund-um-berlin-2

      Wanted: "North German mountain range with three letters". Small Sunday round on the southeastern edge with a drive through wheat and beet fields and finish on Elmhochstrasse.While the wind turbines dominate the south side of the Elm today, the north-east side shows the classic energy generation from lignite.

      Excursion to the Feldberger Seenplatte with the aim of swimming in the Schmalen Luzin near Carwitz. It is beautifully situated in the terminal moraine landscape and, thanks to its depth of up to 60 m, is refreshing throughout the summer.Access via Berlin-Copenhagen cycle path, today with a variant via Neutornow, Barsdorf and Qualzow. Well ..... if you want to torture yourself or want to train with the gravel bike, you should be happy. It's nothing with a racing bike, the sand bunkers force you to push ... From Himmelpfort then towards Lychen. From there there are several direct routes to Carwitz through the forest, either sand and cobblestone here as well or furrowed paths. So rather the detour via Feldberg.Lunch at the fish shop in Carwitz with pike herring in flat bread and a brilliant natural cyclist.Back to Templin via the former "Spur der Steine" railway line.
      I'm still looking for a good bathing place east of Templin, e.g. B. in Bruchsee or in Fährsee. There are accesses to the Bruchsee from the southwestern shore, unfortunately nothing particularly beautiful. If you have any relevant tips, donate a fish in a flatbread and a shandy - or two.

      ... Traffic turn now! "Was the motto of this year's rally with 20,000 participants. Except for one approach from Werder (Havel), all of the starts were within Berlin this time. With thousands of participants on the individual routes, there were always traffic jams at bottlenecks and when turning . A clear sign that the cycling infrastructure needs to be expanded :-)Details about the rally at adfc-berlin.de/aktiv-haben/bei-demonstrationen/sternfahrt/987-adfc-sternfahrt-am-sonntag-6-juni-2021.html.
