New videos of the season 2020/2021
This is the second of the three Rondane RLVs. It starts at the end of part one, at 1000 meters above sea level at Grimsdalshytta. You go down into the Grimsdalen valley and follow it back to Vegaskilet.
And of course there is again the introduction of the filmmaker.
The name Portugal comes from the port of Porto, established by the Roman Empire. It is disputed what is meant by Cale. It could come from the Latin calidus, "warm" - "warm port". Or from the ancient
Greek word kalós - "beautiful harbor". Today appears the first of several videos from Portugal.
In the first new video of the year, we travel from Munich to Prague. And we do so in just a few minutes. However, we're not talking about the capitals of the same name, but two smaller villages in Lower Bavaria.
The route is typically very hilly with the longer, namesake climb to the Neidlingerberg.
The Schinderhannes cycle path in the Hunsrück is 38 km long and runs along the route of the former Hunsrück railway from Simmern via Kastellaun to Emmelshausen. The Klosterwege (Monastery trails)
are part of a series of tours in the northern Black Forest that I will publish in the near future. Sognefjellet is one of the most famous mountain passes in Norway. It is also the highest moutain pass in Northern Europe.
The Michaelskapelle is a Baroque pilgrimage church on the Michaelsberg near Untergrombach on the western edge of the Kraichgau hill country. It was built from 1742 to 1744 on behalf of the Speyer
prince-bishop Damian Hugo von Schönborn and renovated in 2007.
The next new video is with Frosta a peninsula in the middle of Norway, inside the Trondheim fjord. This RLV starts and ends on the very tip of the peninsula. On its way around the peninsula,
it visits several places, including the old abbey ruins on the Tautra island. This RLV is mostly quite flat, but there are some short, steep hills.
Today the recording of the Kiel Canal from Kiel to Brunsbüttel is published, i.e. in the opposite direction to the previously published route. The route goes right at the beginning a short piece
"over land" and later through Rendsburg. Afterwards it goes only along the canal, shortly before end we cross the canal even on one of the many ferries.
This version is over 40 km longer than the KWT Edition.
The Challenge Heilbronn will take place on the 2018 changed track and instead of two loops in the Zabergäu we will now only ride one big bike lap, which now also includes the Kraichgau.
The Pässegourmet is a quite demanding round tour in the Vosges mountains with almost 120 km and over 2700 altitude meters over a total of 5 passes. The route between Bitschwiller-Les-Thann
and Saint-Maurice-sur-Moselle is identical to the corresponding section of the 6th stage of the Tour de France 2019. Rondane is the first part of a three-part series of RLVs that runs
around the Rondane mountains. Ameisberg (ant hill) was so named because from a distance it looks like an anthill. But its summit rises to almost 1000 meters.
Bøverdalen follows the river valley of the same name and is therefore quite flat and scenic.
