Radreise ohne E-Bike von Magdeburg gegen den Wind nach Hamburg
Die Strecke entlang der Elbe rechts bzw. links - wie man mag bzw. je nach Höhenprofil bei Ortschaften - war sehenswert. Da der Wind sehr auffrischte und auch noch kurze Regenschauer (September 12- 18) uns überraschten war es schon eine große Kraftleistung die weiten Ziele zu erreichen (60 - 80 km Strecken). Unsere Empfehlung für diese Strecke: fahrt ab Hamburg gegen den Elbestrom und mit einem E-Bike, den Wind im Rücken. Wir haben eine gute Grundkondition, sind sportlich, aber dieser Wind "nervt". Die Hotels in den schönen Orten sind teilweise oben auf der Höhe (nach so einer Tour ohne E-Bike geht das nur mit letzten Kräften)...da will man dann auch nicht mehr weg. Die Unterkünfte der besseren Kategorie waren ausnahmslos gut ausgewählt, die meisten auch mit guter bürgerlicher Küche. Alles in allem ein schönes Urlaubsziel für sportliche Radfahrer.

Tolle Reise, Tolles Wetter, Tolle E-Räder
Ein Tag mehr in Magdeburg hat sich gelohnt, es gibt einiges zu sehen. Auch der erste Abschitt bis Tangermünde lang aber mit E-Räder kein Problem. Die Strecke von Havelberg nach Gartow wunderbar am Havelkanal entlang. Die Überfahrt der Eisenbahnbrücke bei Wittenberge ein Erlebnis. Hitzacker eine schöne Stadt mit vielen Fahrrad Touristen. Die Fahrt von Hitzacker auf der rechten Elbseite durch wunderbare Obst-Alleen ein Erlebniss für sich. Also eine gelungene Reise mit perfekten Gepäcktransport und guten E-Rädern.
