October 29thGot my bike this morning at 7 am from the construction site on the Petersberg and first roll to Hilgenfeld on Domplatz. The weather is pretty April, in a subdued Corona mood and with the first downpour I prefer to drink my coffee inside. For today's tour I have planned to cycle as many bike paths as possible to get to the Naumburg area. I think that is still feasible in the light of day on the short October days. Instead of my tent, this time I took a tarp and my hammock with me. I'm curious how I can manage that with the weather.Out of Erfurt over the Krämpferbrücke, up the Leinefelder Weg towards Azmannsdorf, I notice at the height that a Velcro has loosened and one of my trainers has disappeared. So back with the rice cyclist saying "What can break breaks, what can loosen, that loosens". Yes, ashes on my head. My lost shoe is waiting for me at the construction site at Geschwister-Scholl Strasse, but it is now properly lashed and I make a second attempt.The Mittelland Route takes you on a beautiful bike path towards Weimar. Wildly towering clouds, brief downpours and bright sunshine alternate. The pent-up basin of the Gramme is currently only a wetland and the sign "No fishing" looks a bit out of place. I can get to Weimar quickly on partly paved bike paths, take a lap through the city, say hello to Mr. Herder and postpone the second coffee until later. The entrance to the Ilm Valley Cycle Path ends at a site fence. I try from the side and end up in the muddy construction site again. A wild curse on the construction site fitters, in whose mind cyclists simply do not exist. A truck driver on the construction site gives me the tip to try it further up in the forest. And yes, a nice little single trail saves the trouble and makes up for me.Through the Ilm Valley and the Tiefurt Castle Park, the Weimar Classic cycle path takes you along. With a few notes from Liszt's Dante Symphony in your ear, past Kromsdorf Castle with grazing sheep in the foreground, through small towns whose names you think you have heard or read somewhere, you head towards Apolda.I make a bow here and continue to Sulza. In the city park the sun breaks out again and admiring the Kunstwinkel, I learn something about artificial trenches, conveyor technology, fascinating mechanics and, of course, about Mr. Goethe's idea for the health and spa town of Bad Sulza.Now I can switch to the well-developed Saale cycle path and am in the middle of the wine-growing region. A short visit to the Three Wise Men at Naumburg Cathedral and of course to Uta.In Naumburg it's just after 2 p.m. and I can still drive for an hour or two to find a suitable place to sleep before it gets dark. On komoot I had seen a refuge near Dobichau, far enough away from the small town to have some rest. It looked nice on the satellite image. What I find then is a "luxury hut" with a fireplace, toilet, dry wood and the perfect opportunity to hang up my mat. I sit by the fire for a while with coffee and a shot of cognac. The rain pelts down on the roof all night, but I'm rocking a little in the dry, albeit a little smoky. It was a good day. Big thanks to the hunters of Dobichau.

Great tour and very well documented in writing and pictures 👍. Without a tent with a hammock, you have to dare to do that at this time of year, respect.

Love from,Well, day 2 was no longer so perfect in continuous rain, mud, desolate landscape and thanks to Corona without an overnight perspective. :))Let's see, I'll put it online for the next few days.
Greatest respect on my part 👍🏽 I will definitely cycle around your route. LG

Great impressions! Your setup for the night makes me curious. Which hammock do you use?
Hello excesses,I'm happy when you drive the route. If there was a box hanging in the hut in Dobichau, I would have liked to leave a small contribution for wood and the perfect place to stay.Greetings Jochen
Hello, Jens,my hammock is a real luxury variant :), with mosquito net and insert for the sleeping mat.amazonas-ultra-light.com/haengematten/moskito-traveller-thermoIf there is no hut I have a tarp with me. But everything is only 1 kg less than with a tent, but then I can do without the sleeping mat in summer.Greetings Jochen
Hello Jochen,Thank you for your answer. Interestingly, I've also been looking at the Amazon systems for the past few days. I'm still in the process of comparing the “Traveler Thermo” and the “Adventure Thermo”.And with regard to the "luxury variant" - it can be a little luxury 😊

Hello, Jens,I also had a look at Cumulus because I was thinking about a new sleeping bag.cumulus.equipment/eu_de/hangematten/underquilts.htmlSo with over and underquilt instead of sleeping mat. But I am now quite satisfied with my choice of trying something with more or less air in the mat. And I'm just having my 15 year old sleeping bag refilled.greetings
I hope I have stored my very good (but 20 year old) sleeping bags well.I'll probably try a hammock setup as an alternative to a tent in spring.In any case, thank you for your information. 👌
