Tuesday Bärenmoos and Pfronten

Once more it is Tuesday, every week actually.
Back to biking with Nico and I am slowly running out of ideas where to bike. We have already completed the Breitenberg, so there isn't much more we can go in altitude. Today's aim was Himmelsreich, a valley along a mountain ridge. Before we set of thought, Nico had some problems with his back disc brake. I mentioned that they could be wearing down, so we biked back to Nicos. Spent about 20 minutes trying to fix his back brakes, and succeeded in the end (with the help of a pair of pliers).
After that back towards Pfronten, the standard route through Pfronten Kappel. After that towards Röfleuten, Nico and me messing around a bit with speed. We met a jogger which Nico thinks was for the second time. She probably is out every Tuesday too. After that along Vilstal and up Bärenmoos. Was a bit of a stretch to go, but we had a lively conversation which reduced the felt time. Along the top for a bit, taking a detour through a field for a good video. Down the stony section after that. Last time I had come down here it seemed a lot more rocky, but that has been a few years ago. Back along Achtal to Pfronten with the long loop around to get back to Nesselwang. Nico suggested having an ice, as it was still rather early, but as we neared Nesselwang, dark thunderclouds could be seen on the horizon. Deciding for the way home we split up at the swimming pool and I just got home in time. Once I was out of the shower it was raining.
