Unsuccessful Fish Hunt

First time out riding in 3 weeks, but we were getting plenty of exercise on foot, exploring Brussels, Essen, Berlin and Leipzig for a week. More about that soon on Ye Olde Regensblogge, I hope. Today I thought I’d like another one of those Steckerlfisch for lunch like on my previous ride, so I planned a route through Obertrauling; but alas. No fish stand to be found. I did stop at Khoros for a Dürüm Kebap in Burgweinting, but it’s been a long time since I had one of those, and I’d forgotten how generous they are for 5€....

Bad Abbach via Großberg to Obertraubling

I did a Saturday ride instead of Sunday because yesterday, the weather seemed more promising for today than for tomorrow. I was exhausted on Friday night after not sleeping well most of the week, and even after a 2-hour late Friday afternoon nap, I went to bed at a reasonable hour and slept all the way through to 6:30 Saturday morning. We made sure to black out the Jalousien and even close the bedroom door to block out as much light as possible....

After Work Loop to Graß and Burgweinting

It was looking rainy, despite the prediction that it wouldn’t rain, and I’d been on the phone all dang day at my desk. I needed to get some fresh air and move around a bit. Snaps Video Recap It’s just a nice, smooth, 40 km/h no-pedal downhill stretch from roughly the TV tower outside of Graß. Route You might need to tap or click the map to make it bigger....

Closing Out June

The weather had been so, mercurial, shall we say. Work stuff pressing on relentlessly and cool rainy nights actually helped me sleep better than usual (at least as of late). All of that meant precious few morning or evening walks this week — not good. So during a break in the early evening downpours yesterday, I went for a fast loop. I managed to keep my heart rate down pretty well....

Sinzing, Alling, Schönhofen, Nittendorf, Etterzhausen

I did a Saturday ride instead of Sunday. The weather has been so iffy lately that it didn’t make sense to wait and see how Sunday would shape up. It was a little easier to stay on the road outside Kühschlag, and avoid the inner workings of the bustling metropolis that is Downtown Nittendorf, so I opted to deviate from the planned route a bit there. And for the stretch from Kneiting to roughly the Pfaffenstein tunnel was STILL under construction, so I followed the detour instructions through Winzer, which was pleasant....
