Even if we go graveling in the Düsseldorf area with a lot of fun and passion, a visit to the Eifel from time to time is a nice change. Whether at the Rapha Prestige in May, where the focus was on the asphalt sections, or last Sunday as part of the gravel ride with the colleagues from BSV Profil Hürtgenwald. The focus here was on loose ground, a terrain perfect for gravel bikes, crossers and MTBs.
In contrast to the 4-person team mode, which we successfully implemented at the beginning of September as part of our local "Schotter, Kies & Moos" trip, we were more or less in a group in the Eifel. Everything has advantages and disadvantages, but in the terrain we see the advantages of small groups in the majority. Even if fewer people are out and about in the Eifel than in the Düsseldorf metropolitan area, the small group still has the advantage that more homogeneous groups can travel together more closely. And each group can find their speed.
Have fun with the pictures of a great sunny day in the Eifel. Unlimited fun, whether on a small or a large lap. Nothing stands in the way of continuing our adventures in the Eifel in 2019.

A note on our own behalf:
At the beginning of November we start the racing bike winter season every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. from the Rheinterrassen under the banner of the Winter Bitch Parade, whereby gravel bikes and similar material are of course also very welcome. Our tours over the paved farm roads and small roads are fun with lots of bikes. The basic requirement, however, is the racing bar, so please no straight handlebars or the like. At the latest at Cyclingworld in March 2019, we will be on the road again off the beaten track. And we look forward to you being there.
