Get into the last warm autumn days with a tour to an interesting historical place, the tram museum Hanover near Sehnde. Not only until 1928 was the potash mine Hohenfels here. Forced laborers also had to work in World War II, they were housed in a connected labor camp. Until 1966 it was used by the British army, until 1976 it was then a Bundeswehr location. A trip with a historic tram over this area with "spooky" historic buildings and parked rail vehicles in a forest area should definitely be planned. Autumn trips often take place at dusk, including atmospheric sunset. And between Müllingen and Rethen there is always a leap of deer, hedgehogs, foxes or buzzards in the immediate vicinity of our bikes.

What an October weather! Ideal for a photo safari to the Saupark at Springe. The kilos less that you have bought at the bike expensive to be packaged by just as expensive bought 3 kilos in the photographic equipment again. The tour leads past the well-known freshwater biotopes, especially Ihme Roloven and the raging waters of Ricklinger Gauetwater. Hannover offers no further obstacles for all fish hikes. On the contrary, the new biotopes invite spawning. Even salmon have been abandoned in the hope that they will come back for spawning. The first part of the tour is again something to dig, the second part will then take place in the area of the pure racing bike city, including the sweaty ascent to Marienburg from the steep east side.

It is autumnal, the tracks demanding (especially slippery Wurzelausläufer on singletrack transverse to the direction of travel), the sun is rather down, so in the area due headlight is announced. The track again offers a colorful mix of terrain and asphalt. In Hanover, the greenest city of its size, the tour already starts and ends at the front door. In between, it goes again to the Deister foreland with its quite extensive forest in the area Benther Berg and Gehrdener Berg. If you want to work as a mountain goat, you can try the Benther Berg.

Nature gives everything again: sunny forests, sparkling lakes, fields under a blue sky, buzzing bees, chattering gray geese and red kites in the sky. The quite long distance demands the Gravelbike again everything: coarse gravel, fine gravel, little sand, singletrack with Bikelifting, overgrown forest roads, but also times asphalt for speed.

Today the "balancing" is packed, the 600mm telephoto lens. The destination is the Weetzener Stapelteiche, a popular meeting place for birdwatchers and bird paparazzi. In between, suddenly a ruined by vandalism ruin, which is in connection with 3 big Hanoverian historical figures and 3 young water buffalo bulls demand the due respect. The tour was then shorter than planned, he did not because of the buffalo ...

A tour that offers everything the Gravelbiker, Adventurebiker or Randonneur heart desires: many gravel roads in beautiful nature, some ticklish border crossings in the MTB zone and also enough asphalt to just make some speed. The most enthusiastic but we have the Friends of Nature House Grafhorn, which has created a convincing reconstruction of an Iron Age settlement with regional and supra-regional support. There is also a very dedicated program for children and youth groups. Great! And the bar in the garden is also welcome!
