Bicycle tours and cycling - an environmental aspect, too
Cycling as an everyday means of transport, sport or leisure activity is possible at practically any age and can also be carried out by people with physical limitations because it is very gentle on the joints. In contrast to running, the legs, knees and hips are relieved because cycling usually involves sitting. Cycling promotes fitness and provides cardiovascular training. Much less raw materials and energy are used to produce a bicycle compared to motor vehicles. In addition, no other fuels are required to get around by bike: cycling saves an average of 140 grams of carbon dioxide and at least 38 cents per kilometre compared to a mid-range car. Do you still cycle or do you turtle? It was this saying that first drew our attention to the alternative bicycle motorhome or the mini caravan. It has now given rise to a new travel concept that we are happy to support, purely for ecological reasons

Wonderful early summer weather lures people outside, if possible into the green nature of the surrounding area. So it is not surprising that the many places for mobile homes on the Main near Kitzingen are largely occupied.
Once again, we wanted to explore a target path with the e-bike from the Prahljust campsite near Clausthal-Zellerfeld, this time it should go along the Rehberger Graben, which we wanted to ride coming from the Oderteich.

We were turning back to the main road between Antalya and Kumluca, as it was easy to find some advices for Olympos. There is no need for a guide while travelling to Olympos on the research for Mountainbike trails, as we were awaited already.
