Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

On the Panoramaweg to Burgruine Altes Schloss
Today is cloudy after a rainy night, so I left my hostel at 8:30am, planning to hike in the forest until mid afternoon, then treat myself to 4 hours at the Friedsrichbad.
It seemed a bit lame just to go back into town and go to the spa without actually doing something strenuous.
I found this landmark Gruner Stein easily enough after hiking up past a spring called Bernardus Brunnen, where I saw 2 different people drive up to fill some plastic water jugs.
