Sunday Oct 11 #

Cycling 4:00:00 [3] 73.3 km (18.3 kph) +160m

Day 5. Rothenschirmbach - Leipzig. 9.15 - 14.00.

Sunny but quite chilly today, the night had been slightly too cold for my sleeping bag as well.

Part of the route the same as when riding into Halle on 28th of May this year.

After Lochau I was getting a bit antsy because I know the route and just wanted to be there already. Pushed hard despite tired legs.

Pretty satisfied with how this little trip went, was a bit apprehensive of autumn weather beforehand but apart from day 2 it was alright! Right knee got a bit sensitive on the 3rd day, but a few days of rest should make it ok again.


Saturday Oct 10 #

Cycling 8:30:00 [3] 147.8 km (17.4 kph) +900m

Day 4. Strodthagen - Rothenschirmbach. 9.00 - 19.30.

Yay, sun! Tailwind and nice weather makes me feel like I can keep going forever. Too bad the days are already so short.

In Niedersachswerfen I had the option of going through the Südharz or more around it through Nordhausen with less climb. Since I enjoyed myself so much I opted for the nicer route with a bit more climb. Not disappointed. Beautiful sunset.


Friday Oct 9 #

Cycling 7:30:00 [3] 127.2 km (17.0 kph) +500m

Day 3. Grosser Torfmoor - Strodthagen. 9.15 - 18.40.

Mostly dry until a nice shower at 110km. Felt good, getting into the rhythm. Beautiful route through the Weserbergland and especially the Vogler and Ith the latter part of the day.


Thursday Oct 8 #

Cycling 6:30:00 [3] 108.0 km (16.6 kph) +350m

Day 2. Haselünne - Grosser Torfmoor. 10.00-18.00.

Forecast was rain and indeed it was a very wet day. Strong winds made for horizontal rain at times, though it never rained very hard. Dry between 13.00 and 16.00 which was very welcome.

Made a fire to cook on (inside my other cooking pot to not damage the nature reserve I was sleeping in), but the boiling water toppled over and extinguished the fire. Ah well.


Wednesday Oct 7 #

Cycling 6:00:00 [3] 118.1 km (19.7 kph) +100m

Day 1. Steenwijk - Haselünne. 14.30-21.30.

Nice tailwind. Bit of rain on the way but not too bad. Enjoyable to ride the last part in the dark. Interesting to pass through the area of the former Bourtanger Moor.
