A ride along the Isar
Monday October 22, 2018 —
As the season advances, we feel we want to catch every ray of sun. It was sunny alright, but cold as well, 5°C when we left and 10°C when we returned. I dressed warmly but my fingers and toes felt the nip of the cold air.
The plan was to cycle south along the Isar. From home we have about two kilometers to the bike path along the bank of the river. Following the Isar is an easy and pretty way to exit the city. In the summer and on weekends it is popular which means congested and no fun, but as today was neither we looked forward to the ride.
Our path returned to the river at the bridge at Höllriegelskreuth. There aren’t too many bridges across the Isar and we decided to cross the river here and return on the other side. But first we stopped for something to eat.
It was a beautiful ride and on paths that I was no longer familiar with, although I think I had ridden some of this part of the Isar years ago.
