Wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann?Ich liebe es draußen zu sein, allein, mit der Familie oder mit Freunden. So nutze ich die Zeit und setze mich so oft wie möglich auf mein Rad. Oft geht es der Nase nach. Und dann lasse ich mich überraschen wohin der Weg mich führt.

      Sabine wanted to hike today - and who am I that I could refuse this wish?Our tour took us to the Saar Hunsrück National Park; Start and finish were Nonnweiler.A really nice, moderately difficult hike with wonderful views and also a few nice benches. Only towards the end of the tour was the route a little unspectacular - the rest was great.

      Because Sabine is on call, we were only able to do a relatively short hike in the vicinity. But it was also good to be here again.

      The sun was supposed to be out today (which it did quite late), and that's how I had to get out.It was really good to cycle a not so short tour again.The stop was not worth mentioning, a snack stop in Ramstein.Incidentally, the underpass between Homburg and Bierbach is largely finished; it is no longer necessary to follow the diversion.

      Despite only 4 degrees outside temperature, I just had to go out today; the clear sunlight beckoned.And so I drove a little variation on one of my favorite routes. It was really good!

      There is a delivery service for my parents once a week.Because the weather was so nice, I didn't have to buy anything on site and I just wanted to do the job by bike. Much better than by car!

      Today I was out in the forest with a school class 🌳. The children should find their own way in individual teams.
      That worked well (apart from a few outliers).
      I myself commuted back and forth between the different teams on my bike; I had a lot of fun today.

      Our longest stage began in Lahnstein at the Hotel Weißes Ross. We had an almost grand room there, almost 50 square meters and three and a half meters high, with a wide, comfortable bed and a bathroom that was tiny in comparison. And the breakfast was opulent! Bread, rolls, eggs, jam, sausage, cheese, muesli, plus the option of choosing variations for vegans or people with lactose intolerance - simply perfect. And why the bed and breakfast was € 20 cheaper here than in the 3 previous hotels - we don't know.In any case, we were well strengthened for the longest of our stages, which led us to the Rhine Cycle Path to Bingen and from there to Bad Kreuznach. I didn't find the Rhine Cycle Path particularly tingling now, precisely because the cycle path simply runs parallel to the car road over very long stretches and is therefore very noisy.So after a delicious cake in Bingen we were happy to go on the local cycle path and to be able to cover the remaining kilometers away from the traffic.Our conclusion: We planned the tour with Komoot ourselves, booked the hotels online and ate the main meal of the day in the evening.We always had our luggage with us, well stowed in a duffel bag on our Burley Travoy trailer.Compared to the offer of a tour operator who did not offer any additional services in addition to route planning, hotel booking and luggage transfer, we saved a good € 1,000 in the total of 5 days (4 nights).What surprised us very pleasantly were the low prices for food in Marburg - in Marburg you can also feel the student city in the price. As an industrial city, Wetzlar is more expensive, but we found a very recommendable burger restaurant there. Not cheap, but worth the price.In Limburg we ate - although a very touristy city - also quite cheaply. And the pizzeria in Lahnstein is one of the best that we have been able to visit so far - and at very reasonable prices.You can be lucky or unlucky with the hotels - we were lucky three times. At around € 95 for an overnight stay in a double room (except in Lahnstein, where it was only € 75) including breakfast, the prices remained within reasonable limits.The bikes held out without complaint, even Bine's bike with the 500 battery was enough for the long stage without any problems. In the end, Sabine still had a remaining range of a good 20 km in the display, I still had almost 70 km with my larger battery despite the trailer. Most of the races were in tour mode (Bosch) or STD mode (Yamaha).Would we do it again?Absolutely yes. We'll do it again.

      In Limburg we stayed at the Hotel Frankfurter Hof, conveniently located right on the edge of the pedestrian zone. We parked our bikes in the hotel's garage; Unfortunately, there is no charging option there, which is why we had to take the batteries with us to the room.Although the appearance of the hotel is optically stylish, the whole property urgently needs a thorough modernization. ONE socket was free in the whole room, where we could charge the batteries, the cell phones and the iPads one after the other. For the Garmin we used the ONE socket in the bathroom, which only worked when the light was left on. The shower - well, let's leave that, we didn't use it.The breakfast was okay, the rolls tasty. Nevertheless, we were happy to continue this morning.After the obligatory fog clearing, we passed Nassau without stopping. also Balduinstein. Now came the somewhat strenuous section, where there is no path along the Lahn, so we had to take the steep ascent to Holzappel and Scheid - shortening by train was out of the question for us. But that too was soon overcome; A short detour to Laurenburg Castle with its remarkable tower made up for it.Narrow and extremely narrow towpaths led further down the river - with a few crisp little intermediate climbs - past the Arnstein Monastery - which, by the way, was taken over by nuns of the Greek Orthodox Church. Incidentally, the nuns at the monastery offer coffee and cake free of charge - donations are gladly accepted and serve to maintain the religious community and the monastery.Past Nassau we stayed in the narrow valley, which should only open again shortly before Lahnstein.
