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.
