      This was the second tour around Lake Constance. This time right to the east. Again, there are always wonderful bike paths right on the lake along. In Austria and Switzerland, the development of bike paths is again much better.
      Also on the tour I did not really get to cycle, because a great view was always chasing the next one 😊👍
      There are always terrific landscapes all over the route, pure nature.
      The slope at Rheineck was bissl bad (up to 14%) for me as a flatland driver, but otherwise the tour is very pleasant to drive.
      After the stopover in Konstanz, we went back to Meersburg by ferry and the same way back, as on the first tour. But again was just as nice 😉

      The first part of the Bodenseetouren was also the smaller one. It went west to Überlingen, Ludwigshafen to Constance. From there take the ferry to Meersburg and then continue via Immenstaad back to Friedrichshafen.
      The Bodensee region is a dream for cyclists. There are plenty of well-developed bike paths, which also run mostly along the lake.
      At Constance, it gets a bit hilly, depending on the route also with decent gradients. The rest is very relaxed. And there are plenty of opportunities to relax, because there are sights, great views and cafes everywhere.

      In the wonderful Radlwetter I had to go again and turn a round.
      The GPS was sometimes quite next to the track, but everything fits so far to the data from the bike computer. The altimeters just do not quite fit, are gem. barometric measurement only 300.
      But today was premiere, I had my first records on the front wheel 😂 So far, it has always caught me behind on every bike.
      It was more modest than I thought. The coat jumped down 2 times again 😤 Good that I had enough gas cartridges to reserve.
      At home I wanted to inflate the tire again clever. Had not really put the floor pump away, there's been a big bang, so that immediately the neighbors arrived startled. 😊 Did it really tear me the new hose 😥 So the whole game with tire change again. I hope he stops now.

      Today I had to adapt the tour on the way. First the road to Schwaig was closed. There was no way through, because the road was completely weggebaggert. There was nothing out of the way to the airport. So back north and take the road to Freising.
      Then I wanted to customize the tour in Komoot. When I wanted to delete the waypoint at the airport I crashed the app and the rest of the way was gone 😥 So I had to reschedule unceremoniously and have taken the way back to my Weihenstephanrunde. Thus then Oberschleißheim has fallen away. Did not pay the miles and it was still a nice round with great Radelwetter.

      This time another 4-lake tour 😊
      Due to the many suggestions here, I wanted to visit the area sometimes. It was a bit too far from Munich, so I went to Tölz and chose the starting point on the Blombergbahn. There is a large parking lot where you can leave the car for 2 € the whole day to cycle in peace.
      On the way to Kochelsee, it was already going great. Either there were bike paths or I could drive on quiet side roads. And despite the clouds, the view was a dream.
      A little detour I had made at the monastery Benediktbeuern. On Kochelsee there was the first magnificent lake panorama. 👍
      Then the ascent followed the Kesselbergstraße to the pass. So, as a self-confessed lowlander, I was totally thrilled, because it went up a moderate slope of about 6%. Even for me well feasible and consistently to sit in the drive. 😊
      Maybe my form is not so bad after all 🤣
      The only stop had to be made for the photo and the magnificent view of the Kochelsee. Once at the top of the pass, we went down again to Walchensee.
      The sight could also be enjoyed in peace, as the road leads along the lake all the time.
      Then we continued via Wallgau to the toll road to Vorderriß. What should I say: Fantastically beautiful!
      All the while mountain panorama and the wild Isar meandering alongside one. And hardly any traffic. After noon, the sun came out more and more, so the sight was even better 👏
      On the way to Sylvensteinspeicher I had to choose a short alternative route, because the B307 was closed because of a Grölllawine. For that I had the road for myself alone
      From the Sylvensteinspeicher we went over the Achenpass to the Tegernsee. It was already strenuous, but here, too, it was amazingly good up the mountain.
      Past the west side of the Tegernsee, we went via Bad Tölz back to the starting point.
      Conclusion: just amazing the area !!!!!! An amazing tour, which I definitely do again 😊

      Still a small Feierabendrunde, before the weather does not play along on the weekend.
      It was really great to cycle today, although it was pretty hot. Good that I took a second bottle 😊

      After I was not able to drive last week, it was absolutely necessary to have a Feierabendrunde today 😊
      The weather was great, sometimes there was a dark cloud, but nothing came out. Only the wind felt refreshed something. But we are not friends anyway
      The round was really great and so I was faster than expected and wanted.
      This time my bike computer at 28.8 km / h has displayed a higher speed than komoot 😊 has never happened to me 😀

      Not so great today. Was just 5 minutes on the road, since the rear tire has adopted with his plates.
      I started driving a bit earlier, but the heat caught me then and on the way back I felt that too, it was pretty flat.
      But I arrived home and on Lake Starnberg, of course, it was as fantastic as ever!
