I ride regularly, and I do not necessarily post a web page for each tour I do.
The Gö Internazionale go for Coffee in Gö – October 30 2022 Gravel Ride
The Gö Internazionale (Previously the International Brigade) rode out from the Velodrome following a freestyle route to partake in coffee at Besenhausen to the south of Göttingen nestled up close to Thuringia and the defunct DDR border.
At the meeting point of three states, the Dreilländerstein and once an international border, Tim managed to fall off his bike in Lower Saxony, touched the soft earth in Hesse and, rolled into and theatrically stood up in Thuringia.
Sections of the Gö Strade Bianche featured strongly on the ride.
We did not stop at the Michelin starred Biewald Restaurant in Friedland, maybe another day.
We were lucky to enjoy and an amazingly warm Herbst day.

Foraging with Sandra and Josh in Gö – October 9 2022 Gravel Ride
At this time of the year the Leine Valley is rich with the fruits of the earth.
The bounty falls from the trees, and we pick it up whilst leaving so much for the critters who may also be interested.
And there were mushrooms (where I mentioned social drugs).
Danke to Sandra and Josh for the fun.
