Mitten in Schleswig-Holstein, in der schönen Stadt Rendsburg, bin ich geboren und habe dort die ersten 20 Jahre meines Lebens verbracht.
Weitere 20 Jahre habe ich in Hamburg gewohnt. Jetzt habe ich bereits seit über 20 Jahren mein Domizil in Schwarzenbek im Herzogtum Lauenburg in Schleswig-Holstein.Ich war schon immer viel auf Schusters Rappen und mit dem Fahrrad unterwegs gewesen. Zunächst in Rendsburg und Umgebung - später dann auch die ganze deutsche & dänische Nord/Ostseeküste rauf und runter sowie auch überregional in Deutschland, Europa und USA.Seit Oktober 2017 bin ich - nach über 45 Jahren im Berufsleben - im wohlverdienten Ruhestand und habe jetzt endlich mehr Zeit, mit dem Fahrrad (Pedelec) oder auch per pedes auf Entdeckertouren zu gehen.
Oft sind auch meine Frau Marlies und unser Zwergschnauzer Buddy dabei.
Buddy ist schon 13 Jahre alt und hat leider "Rücken" und andere Gebrechen - er kann keine längeren Strecken mehr laufen, möchte aber natürlich immer mit dabei sein. Deswegen kommt er in seinen Fahrradhundekorb oder in seine Karre, wenn er nicht mehr laufen kann. Da fühlt er sich wohl und wir sind alle mobil. Ich fahre ein KALKHOFF INCLUDE mit einem 60er Rahmen und aktuell 47er Reifen. Eine "ALL DAY RIDE CONSTRUCTION" (Trekkingbike) mit der ich sowohl relativ schnell auf Straßen, als auch gut im leichten Gelände unterwegs sein kann.
Für schwierigeres Gelände habe ich ein E-MTB Fully SERIOUS BEAR Rock mit einem 54er Rahmen und 65er Stollenreifen.
Bei Komoot bin ich seit 2014 registriert. Meine Touren zeichne ich mit Komoot seit 2017 auf - aktuell
mit meinem Smartphone Samsung Galaxy S10+ und fotografiere damit auch.
Das Punkteranking bei Komoot ist umstritten, wie die Reaktionen manchmal zeigen. Ich persönlich finde es gut und es macht mir Spaß.
LG Jörg 🙂
Actually, I hadn't planned a tour today .....
But because I was just in the area, I spontaneously took advantage of the bright sunshine and still turned around / in Mölln. A flying visit to Mölln is always worthwhile. It is a small, attractive town with many great lakes, the Elbe-Lübeck Canal and a wonderful natural landscape all around.
I actually wanted to avoid the city center because of the currently tense situation, but there was nothing going on there and you could keep your distance everywhere.
So I also included the old town in the round. I shot the cover photo / aerial photo of Mölln in 2003 from the top of the old water tower and added it to the tour afterwards. The water tower has unfortunately been closed for years and is no longer accessible to the public. This is a real shame because you have fantastic views from up there.More information about Mölln:herzogtum-lauenburg.de/moelln

Today I wanted to know exactly, went yesterday's tour again alone and recorded it with 5 cell phones at the same time in order to have comparative values.
A Samsung S3, two S7, an S10 and an S20 were in use. Marlies was registered for two and I for three.
To avoid questions about why we have 5 cell phones ..... the S3 and the two S7 are our old cell phones, which are technically out of date and so have their quirks, but can still be used for Komoot, listening to music, etc. are.
I had the two S7 in my left and right trouser pocket, the S10 and S20 in my left and right jacket pocket and the S3 in the upper jacket pocket.
I was very excited to see how it would turn out and walked very quickly.
The tour started at 11:00 am and ended at 12:02 pm.
Surprisingly, however, the data does not differ significantly from one another, as expected.
Except for the altitude difference, but that is already well known and not so important for me in the lowlands here. Anyone who travels a lot in the mountains will be more interested.
Still, it was an interesting test.
The following values were measured:S3 JR: 59 min 6.38 km 6.4 km / h 40 mS7 JR 60 mins 6.38 km 6.4 km / h 40 mS7 MR 61 min 6.31 km 6.3 km / h 50 mS10 JR 60 mins 6.38 km 6.4 km / h 40 mS20 MR 61 min 6.30 km / h 6.3 km / h 50 mAfter I opened the tours on the PC and synchronized the tours, the values had changed again. The average speed fluctuates between 6.2 - 6.4 km / h and the altitude difference between 10 and 50 m.I will refrain from making an inquiry to Komoot for the time being and will keep an eye on the values for future tours.
Still, it was an interesting test.
I will delete 4 of the 5 recorded tours later so that the statistics are correct again.

Small Sunday round with Marlies and Buddy in Schwarzenbek and the surrounding area. At the age of 13, Buddy can unfortunately no longer run that long, but of course he is outside several times a day and does his little laps. Today we had all been on the road a little longer together. Was a nice lap at + 2 ° and dry weather. The snow has already thawed away again

Today we went on lonely, muddy forest paths from Dassendorf to Panzerberg and through the forest back again. There were only a few people around and you could keep your distance everywhere. Dassendorf is a pure residential area without any "special features". Likewise are the long and straight forest paths. Beautiful nature, but otherwise inconspicuous. The former training site Wentorfer Lohe with the Panzerberg, on the other hand, is a bit more varied.
Was the right decision to go out again today. You just feel better afterwards

After the long postponed gardening (raking leaves, etc.) was done today and I was a little warm, I left for this tour shortly after 2 p.m. to work out a bit. It was a good thing. My MTB would have been the better choice today than my trekking bike with the fully inflated tires ... the forest paths were in places quite soft / muddy and bumpy - but it was also quite good.
I had already thought of hiking this route - but I would be on the road for about nine hours ... there are two hours on the bike, just in between, a different dimension - have a look. 😉

Moderate temperatures at + 3 ° C and it should stay dry - so get out and move a little. The tour began in Friedrichsruh at the climbing garden near the Bismarck mausoleum and led past the Bismarck museum and the butterfly garden to Aumühle. Along the Schwarzen Au and the Bille we went on to the Wolfsschlucht. The name sounds spectacular, but it isn't. Wolves haven't been around there for a long time ... or will they be back soon? It doesn't matter, there are currently none there and it is a beautiful piece of earth where you can hike well.
From Reinbeck Castle I hiked past the clay pond and over the Panzerberg back to the starting point of the tour. The Panzerberg is not very high and looks inconspicuous - but it is not. It is very steep and slippery, even on foot it is a little demanding. When you go up there, you can hardly imagine that tanks can go up there, but it works. Unimogs can do it too.
With a bike / MTB you shouldn't even try it, as I know from my own experience, because then there is the risk of descending backwards with a somersault. If you pedal hard in order to have momentum, the front wheel lifts off and at the latest then you should stop the attempt. I don't know if real professional cyclists would be able to do this, probably yes. Can someone report if he / she has experience.I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy & healthy New Year and lots of fun on all your tours. 🍀🙂.

After it stayed dry today, I took a look around the area and did a little lap through the Bergedorf woods.
A great hiking - bike & MTB terrain with a lot of "ups and downs".I wish you all a happy new year 2021
with lots of great tours. 🥂🥳Further information about the Bergedorf wood:bergedorf-info.de/INFO/Bergedorfergehoelz.html

Boizenburg calls itself "Tile City on the Elbe". As the name suggests, it is not directly on the Elbe, but on the Boize. The Elbe does not flow far away, but the brew has been flowing in between since 1983. Well, it doesn't matter, the Elbe is better known, sounds better and is always very present here during floodsAt the northern tip of the biosphere reserve
The Elbe-Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania river landscape at the Elwkieker observation tower flows into the Boize, which even after a few meters flows into the Elbe on the right.
The mouth of the Sude was relocated from Gothmann to the Boizenburg harbor entrance around 1983, so that the Boize became the tributary of the Sude. Before that, the Boize flowed directly into the Elbe.Boizenburg has become a pretty town in recent years. I always like to come back here. A lot has been refurbished / renovated and restored, but there is still a lot to do in some corners. But all the work was worth it. I especially like the old town with the old half-timbered houses and the ramparts.More detailed information about Boizenburg:auf-nach-mv.de/reiseziel/a-stadtinformation-boizenburg-elbede.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boizenburg/Elbeboizenburg.de

The shortest day of 2020 was a wonderfully sunny and with + 8 ° C a relatively warm December day. I was soon able to leave out my hat and gloves. My last MTB tour to the border triangle was unfortunately quite foggy - today there was bright sunshine.If you are in the area, you should not miss the opportunity to cross the Elbe bridge and enjoy the fantastic views of the Elbe.
The road bridge, inaugurated in 1966, connects Schleswig-Holstein with Lower Saxony. On the Schleswig-Holstein side, it consists of a 175-meter-long bridge over the lock canal, a 550-meter-long dam stretch and a 400-meter-long section that crosses the actual Elbe. A 240 meter long foreland bridge connects on the Lower Saxony side.
The bike / hiking trails run along both sides of the road bridge, but are very narrow. When cyclists and hikers meet, it gets tight. Mutual consideration is the order of the day. When heavy trucks drive past you, the bridge vibrates so that photos can be blurred
But that doesn't matter at all - it is important that you can easily cross the Elbe here.
From the Elbe bridge you can easily make a detour to the Schleuseninsel (Elbe Island). Every time I am fascinated by the great sandy beaches and the wonderful natural landscape in the southwestern part of the island.At the western tip of the lock island Geeshacht (Schwinder Haken) is the triangle where Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg and Lower Saxony border each other. The B 404 divides the lock island almost exactly in the middle.
The very beautiful sandy beach with several small, idyllic bays is located on the southwest bank right next to the Elbe bridge. Here you can take a break, relax and enjoy the view of the Elbe.
A single trail winds along the south-west bank, from which you can get to the beach in several places. The last third of the western lock island up to the western point is blocked by a fence with two pasture gates. The small pasture gate on the south bank is not locked, just latched. I know such gates e.g. from the Höltigbaum. You can / may open it there and enter the pasture. Since there are no signs at the gate here, I walked on a barely recognizable “beaten path” over the pasture through beautiful nature to the western headland. Then I went back along the north bank over the pastureland. There is no path there. The gate on the north bank is wider and is locked with a padlock. You have to climb over there or go to the smaller gate to the south over the pasture. A sign behind the gate says that entering the pasture area is not permitted,
to protect the grazing animals. Fortunately, there are no more animals on the pasture in winter, so none of them were disturbed by me. I assume that entering the pasture is also prohibited for reasons of liability, but is tolerated if there are no animals there. Otherwise the smaller pasture gate to the south would also be locked and equipped with signs. You can also see hikers walking across the pastures there.From the eastern tip of the lock island you have beautiful views of Geesthacht over the lock canal and the Elbe from the south bank.
Past the largest fish ladder in Europe, it then went over the Elbe bridge and the lock canal back to the parking lot. It is a good starting point for tours
around here.With the beautiful tour and the wonderful weather I couldn't hold back and once again brought plenty of photos with me. However, I do not accept complaints about the large number. Nobody is forced to look at them all. Anyone who nevertheless wants to take the time and follow the tour virtually is invited and welcome. Have lots of fun with it.Unfortunately, the weather won't be so nice for the next few days. If we don't see each other by then, I wish you all a merry Christmas and stay healthy
