Thursday Lake Trailing

First Thursday biking of the year 2014 today. Rather a lot of people there, considering that normally the activities are still more winter centred at this time of the year. Met up at the Alpspitzhalle, as usual, and left at 18.45 o'clock, to the ringing of the church bells.
Group 1 and Group 2 started of the same general direction, but ended up splitting up at a crossing. Group 2 continuing down along the Wertachtal and Group 1 going up to Zillhalde. After biking uphill a bit, we biked on towards the Rückholzer Steig. Went along some interesting forest trails that I had never known where there. Arrived in Rückholz in the end and proceded along the normal nine Weiher tour, with some super trail modifications from Inge. Met Group 2 near the Atlesee They apparently saw us a bit early, but we where to far ahead to catch up to. Carried on towards the Kögelweiher and after that through the standard forest trail. Passed the monster spider nest which has sprung up along that way. As it was getting rather dark we set up our lights (Paulina seeming to have a floodlight at her disposal) and carried on through Rindegg and down the Hohlweg. Met Group 2 at the bottom coming in from another way and proceeded on to the Bistro for a drink and chat.
