7:00 a.m. Getting up and a first look out of the window - looks freezing cold like -10°C: breakfast, dress and don't think twice
8:30 a.m. Renè has just arrived wearing some cloth under his helmet - it's definitely cold today, else he wouldn't bother. The sun is rising, the sky is blue and clear, we decide to rather stick to the woods as there is a stiff NW-wind blowing.
9:30 a.m. Having climbed Kirchenwald (hard) and cruised over to some old earthworks right in the forest which make up a technical trail segment we were in another hard climb which led to some soul cruising on a mildly climbing trail with patches of snow and the sun shining through the leafless trees.
Then we scared some 20 wild boars that let to them thundering with top speed through the underbrush which scared us a bit in return. Downhill and up again and finally arriving near Heiligenberg.
10:10 a.m. That was where we left the cover of the forest and rode against the stiff NW wind, ice cold. Through Niederkreuzstetten up the Ochsenberg and finally the technical downhill "Hubertus extrem" (we haven't come through for some time, so it's a bit overgrown; but still nice).
11:00 Reminiscing and having a beer.
2:20 hrs/25 km/550 altitude metres
Nothing new, but rewarding as there are some technical sections. **** of ten
