... or 293k 3219m of elevation within 36 hours.
Broadly fed up as of the new magazine GRAVEL - all terrain and as of the weatherforecast (airport) shortly determined the decision was to hike from Naumburg (Saale) around 300k South home across Rennsteig, a famous running area located in the Thüringer Wald, the woods of Thüringen with the former Iron Curtain across on two wheels at rainy and snowy conditions.
How comes? Well, the new magazin is about gravel-biking and bike-packing, yes, but first edition is about all terrain. This is ridiculous as of tourists won't go all terrain (ATC is something different, sure/ ATC is a short-cut for insiders, only), thus, yes, it does remind to good old times, of triathlon, if course, of course.
Well, having started at 9.30 AM having had a longer rest over night somewhere closely to the river of Rodach the terrain kept hilly as of detour moreover, like always. At the first day pacing at river of Saale was good, but then uphill parts came again, unfortunatelly.
