All Along the Watchtower in Gö – March 20 2021 Gravel Ride

DE
Ich besuchte oder passierte in der Nähe von: 7 mittelalterlichen Warte, Schlachtfeldern, einer Militärbasis und 11 Flugzeugabsturzstellen im 2. Weltkrieg in Göttingen.

Ich bin dankbar, in der friedlichsten Zeit zu leben, die Europa je erlebt hat.

Wachtürme befinden sich oft auf einer Anhöhe, was bedeutet, dass es auf dieser Fahrt viele Anstiege gab!

Ich begann an der Schillerwiese, dem Liebesnest eines Bonaparte.

Jimi Hendrix rocks! Und War is Hell!

I visited or passed near: 7 medieval watchtowers, battle fields, a military base and 11 WW2 aircraft crash sites in Göttingen.

I am grateful to live in the most peaceful time Europe has ever known.

Watchtowers are often upon high ground meaning there were many climbs on this ride!

I began at the Schillerwiese, the love nest of a Bonaparte.

Jimi Hendrix rocks! And War is Hell!
