Glowing through the fog

It was cold and wet — not rainy, just moist. That’s the weather I like, typically. But my feet got achingly cold. From here on out towards spring, I guess I’ll need insulated boots and warmer socks. Snaps The bike-mounted snaps are off by an hour in their timestamps because I still haven’t set that camera’s clock for Winterzeit. Video You’ll want to turn the sound off for this (I forgot to remove it)....

November 6th, 2022

It’s been a while since I biked and recorded a route and route about it. Which is not good, of course, but better late than never. This was a nice, gentle step back into it. I was debating whether to do a short loop through Leoprechting and Graß, or a longer loop down to Bad Abbach, and in the end I split the difference and opted for Scharmassing and Neudorf and Hohengebraching as waypoints....

True Radler

I did one of my most common routes this morning, but I changed it up by stopping for lunch at the Zunftstüberl outside of Matting for lunch.

Tea Run to Regenstauf

I was running low on Earl Grey, organic and packaging free, so I grabbed an empty, cleaned-out pickle jar or something and hustled up to Quantum Satis to refill on that, and green cardamom pods, and star anise. They were out of star anise, and they won’t be restocking it: sadly, they’re shuttering for good on July 31st, 2022. The owner told me the economic situation of their store is just not sustainable....
