      The second tour on behalf of radelnohnealter.de led via the parks on Teltower Damm to the Teltow Canal, on the old towpath to the Teltow shipyard, along the Buschgraben to Potsdamer Chaussee and back via Zehlendorf Mitte. The off-road suitability of the Christianiabike was also tested. It wasn't that bad at all, but unfortunately the paths were often narrower than the vehicle. Didn't matter, our tracks in the greenery next to the path will soon be overgrown again.

      The hike to Mount Zaz, at over 1000m the highest peak in the Cyclades, was really a full program, because what were the inclines, almost insurmountable scree stretches, untraceable goat paths in the thorny scrub, endless sections over the bare rock and slippery descent without the help of the Hands could not be mastered while climbing is hard to beat. In any case, I underestimated it and still found it absolutely magnificent, because from above you could see pretty much all the islands of the Cyclades and almost a piece of the Turkish mainland. I only felt sorry for a few naive Americans who danced around between the thorn bushes in shorts and sneakers with bright red legs and arms, clutching the large water bottle tightly. A tip for running afterwards: it is best to start in a clockwise direction, because then the ascent is steep, but the descent is easier to conquer on an even steeper and more difficult route downhill.

      This round starts rather boring, until you can explore the ruins of the monastery of Kalamítsia, an extensive complex that is slowly falling apart.
      Without a visible path, but with orange markings, it goes through the scrub, later in a green jungle valley between high dry stone walls along the stream, where an abandoned water mill and a well-preserved Venetian tower from the 17th century stand.
      Towards the end of the hike, you pass two kouros (mostly cow-steeds?), Many meters long youths made of marble that broke on the transport over 2500 years ago and were simply left lying there.

      Before you could simply buy sandpaper from OBI, the mineral emery was mined in the mountains of Naxos. Partly from the opencast mine, partly from long tunnels, the mineral was taken from the mountains with trucks and transported via cable cars to the ports on the north coast of Naxos. At some point in the late 1940s, corundum was artificially produced and the trade was no longer profitable. Here you can still discover many traces of the once busy activity. The site is freely accessible, some tunnels can be visited and you can even find the old diesel engine from 1925 that powered the cable car in its building. Twenty years ago an attempt was made to establish an open-air museum here, but adverse circumstances prevented it and, like so many other EU-sponsored projects, it came to nothing.

      Naive lowland cyclists tend to totally overestimate their abilities, to underestimate altitude and temperature. I am anyway.Nevertheless, I enjoyed the beautiful area with a view of the surrounding Aegean islands, the sawn-up mountains for marble extraction and the village passages, past cute cafes and restaurants where I was not allowed to be guests because I dawdled around until 2 p.m. and only myself then I got up to tackle the almost 900 meters in altitude.Back at the residence, I dragged myself with the last of my strength to the refrigerator, where an ice-cold can of Amstel was waiting to fill my inner, completely hardened sponge with liquid again.

      Finally travel properly again!To get to know at least part of the island quickly, borrowed a cube from "Tonys Bikes" (recommended rental in Naxos City) and followed his recommendations for a first tour to the remains of an illegal hotel building, whose walls are now used as concrete canvas for graffiti artists serve.Unfortunately, the recommended way there led over the mountains, which the plains find suboptimal. The chosen shortcut then led over rocky donkey paths and forced humiliating pushing.The paintings in the afternoon light were really awesome, the way back was also less demanding, but I was properly powdered on the gravel roads by every passing vehicle. And I also discovered my potential retirement home along the way.Now off to the typical Greek restaurant chairs by the sea that lead to blood flow congestion and enjoy calamari with ouzo at sunset.

      Something completely different: The organization radelnohnealter.de arranges rickshaws and pilots for people who can no longer cycle themselves. Today I tried my hand as a pilot for a 105 year old (!) Lady.
      Such a three-wheeled e-bike takes some getting used to. This uncomfortable feeling of cornering without any inclination reminded me of the first trips with a motorcycle team. But you get used to it, especially since things are going very slowly due to the lack of suspension and the passenger who is no longer quite as robust. The amazingly powerful engine would easily have allowed 25km / h.
      It was really fun despite the rain and I will repeat that every now and then.
