Dear hiking friends,I would like to animate you to a very special hiking event that I will do after Frank's campaign (komoot.de/collection/935601/-virtuelle-komoot-staffelwanderung-grossraum-berlin-potsdam-mai-2020) and worked out together with the komoot community management.In view of the restrictive external circumstances, the aim is to strengthen the cohesion of the community and to set up a joint virtual tour. The principle is as follows: At the start I hike a tour from A to B, one of you then hikes from B to C, the next person from C to D etc.I hope that we can manage a tour as a "virtual hiking group" every day until June 14th. This event is supposed to be about participants from the greater Cologne / Düsseldorf area, of course you can also travel to contribute a stage.Which route you hike and how long it is entirely up to you, you just have to take your own starting point from the end point of your respective predecessor. It is definitely not about "higher-faster-further" and measuring strength, but about the fact that every participant is actually part of the matter and makes his or her own contribution to the overall result.
So that we can also connect Cologne and Düsseldorf with each other, is the idea; hiking from Zons to Cologne on the left bank of the Rhine and back to Düsseldorf on the right bank of the Rhine. This is at least the rough direction. I am excited to see which route will ultimately come out.-----The following rules apply:
- for sure this is a "fun event", please go about it with the necessary seriousness and think in terms of community
- Your stage should be at least three kilometers long, there is no limit to the top, but please do not overdo it
- please only contribute A-to-B stages, no round trips
- The destination of your stage should be easily accessible by local or regional public transport. This helps you as well as the person who has to continue at the point
- After completing your stage, please put it online at komoot as soon as possible, so that the following person has enough time to plan your own stage. You can then edit images, etc.To assign the daily allocations:
I set up a doodle survey at:
If you are interested in this campaign, please register there. You only enter the name under which you are active at komoot, I do not need any further data. Pick your desired day and send the form. The following applies: first come, first served and free choice. Please only grab a free 'slot' if you actually intend to hike your stage that day.I will start my start on June 1st in Zons, you can then start from June 2nd. until June 14th continue. If there is a lot of demand and if all days are quickly allocated without gaps, we may extend the campaign.Should you still not be able to meet your specified date, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can share the day with other interested parties. If necessary, I will step in in the event of short-term failures so that the chain does not break.-----I am looking forward to your feedback and hope that numerous participants will be there. I sent an invitation to some of you whom I follow and who are hiking in the greater Cologne / Düsseldorf area to this virtual event. All others who read here are of course also invited. As always, feel free to share your opinion and ask questions here in the comments or contact me by email at the email address above.
At this point I would also like to thank my komoot friend Frank, whom I got to know last year in Berlin and Saskia from komoot. Thanks to both of you!-----Here are all participants and the links to their profiles:

Andi and I were on the Rheinburgenweg between Sinzig and Andernach today. A very nice stage path that could come up with three or four castles and thus definitely lives up to its name. The recommended thing about this tour is certainly the varied: the change between forests, ascends carved into the slate, then views over the Rhine plain or startling deer on the edge of the forest. And the weather played along too at the end!

The two of us explored the Burscheider Rundweg today. With wonderful summer weather, this idea also had enough others ;-)The trail itself impresses with its variety. Beech forests, villages in the Bergisch triad, distant views as far as Cologne Cathedral and a number of old mills leave no room for boredom.
A cool beer in the beer garden "Haus Diepental" at the old Diepental dam sweetens the rest.Wormwood drops are a few sections along a confusing main road and the GRAYLY INFULLY signposting of the hiking trail. We also got lost a few times. ;-)

Today I took part in another virtual event. This challenging hike represents the 73.3 km variant of the 17th Mairaton in Oslo.
Together with friends in Germany, Holland, Poland, Switzerland and Norway, we celebrated the Norwegian National Day at different distances.
It was nice !

Many events were canceled during this strange time. So the first edition of the Aliso March should take place in Wesel last weekend. A two-day march that requires 42 km on the first day and 30 km on the second.
The organizer got creative and offered to cover these distances virtually between May 1st and June 30th.So today I spent the first day on the Bergisches Weg between Königswinter and Blankenberg. A really nice route that is absolutely worth hiking and deserves its name!
And visiting a family of friends along the way also brought delicious cakes and stimulating coffee. Including chicken carriers. 😂Tomorrow I will spend the second day on the Posthornweg around Langenfeld.
