National Holidays in Germany, thousands of people everywhere, fleamarkets, barbecues, hiking .. We didn’t really want to join these masses and went for a ride around the Überlinger See which is the northwestern arm of Lake Constance. Of course we didn’t ride the official bike lanes as they were crowded as well and cut our way through to woods, trying to take as many trails as possible – which went quite well. It’s a shame how many awesome hiking trails are prohibited to ride – which we did anyway and what turned out to be less stress than estimated. All in all the round was 65 km in total with 900 m up and down. Of course we had to ride a little tarmac as well but with all the trails we dicovered, the ride has been a blast. There’s a lot of potential in this area yet to be explored.
