Informazioni su Martin Donat

Hey! :) Ich liebe das Radfahren und ich liebe es, andere an meinen Erlebnissen teilhaben zu lassen. Das mache ich in meinem Printmagazin, dem lifeCYCLE Magazine, das ich viermal im Jahr herausbringe. Und das mache ich hier, als offizieller Collection-Redakteur für komoot. Ich nutze komoot schon lange für meine Tourenplanung und freue mich darüber, meine Erfahrungen hier weitergeben zu können. Wenn ich sie nicht selbst ausprobiert habe, plane ich meine Collections genau so, als wenn ich selbst auf große Reise gehen würde. Ich recherchiere die besten Routen und empfehle dir Highlights, die ich selber spannend oder hilfreich finde. Wenn ich mal daneben liege und eine Route aus irgendeinem Grund nicht empfehlenswert ist, freue ich mich über dein Feedback. Ansonsten wünsche ich dir einfach viel Spaß auf dem Bike! :)

      A nice Trans-Odenwald double round, from which you can build a short or a little longer adventure. I will show you how this can look in four stages in this collection: komoot.de/collection/901160.

      I once planned a bikepacking trip through the Hunsrück. Spread over three days, the whole thing could work like this: komoot.de/collection/924571.

      The finale of my Wales adventure is coming up and there is everything again that makes Wales so special and beautiful. There are picturesque towns and remote country roads. There are idyllic river valleys and breathtaking views from the peaks of the mountains. There are steep climbs and rapid descents. And there are sheep. The only thing that still doesn't exist are flat passages. In Wales it goes up and down.From Machynlleth I start over some small hills to the dreamy village of Corris, where most of the roofs and facades are completely covered with slate. This is due to the fact that one of the world's largest slate mines was only a little further on. It has been closed since 2002, but I can still see its traces everywhere.In Aberllefenni I drive past an old slate dump, which is quite impressive. And this is exactly where the longest and highest ascent of the day starts. At first very gently, later quite steep. A couple of sheep are waiting for me upstairs and a great view to enjoy. The descent, which is only occasionally interrupted by a pasture gate, is then also enjoyable. It cannot be ruled out that there will be a sheep or a cow on the street. I'd rather be careful.In Dolgellau I am right in the middle of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. The route leads me over lonely country roads alternating with beautiful gravel roads. The huge trees are particularly impressive here and when I hear a splash, I discover a small waterfall. In any case, there are enough idyllic places for a break.After I left Lake Llyn Trwasfynydd on the left, it gets really demanding again. I reach the top of a hill via a very steep, very rough gravel path, from which I have an incredibly beautiful view. And on which a single trail begins that wants to challenge me and my bike again. I prefer to drive carefully and with foresight, so it will be pure enjoyment.The destination of the stage and thus also the end of my Wales tour is the cozy YHA Snowdon Ranger Hostel right on the Llyn-Cwellyn lake. The next day there is only an easy 20-kilometer drive to Bangor waiting for me. From there the train goes back to Newport or London.Information about the Llyn Cwellyn Hostel: yha.org.uk/hostel/yha-snowdon-ranger?utm_source=google&utm_medium=maps&utm_campaign=google-places.

      The day couldn't start better. Up at the Claerwen reservoir, the first rays of sun wake me up and the sheep greet me with their friendly "Mähs" in all tones. How I would like to treat myself to a delicious breakfast now, but unfortunately I didn't prepare anything the day before. So I dismantle the tent and go on!The tour begins with a gravel passage that has it all. The ground is sometimes quite bumpy and sometimes so much that I better push a few meters. So at least I have time to take a look at the surroundings in peace. Wow, is it nice here! And since I have no cell phone network at all, I can just enjoy the idyll and nature in peace. I can still post the great souvenir photo this evening.I can't make fast progress up here. Again and again I have to stop to open a pasture gate and - importantly - to close it again so that the sheep stay on their pasture. Even a small stream crossing is part of the nature experience here. My stomach is already growling: When will I finally be able to buy something? Even if I have to make do with a gas station for the time being, the time will come soon. The gas station is at least well equipped and there is a reason for that. When I ask a local about the nearest supermarket, he looks at me in amazement and then starts to laugh ...The destination of this tour is the small town of Macnynlleth. In the town center there are many restaurants, cafes and shops, some with an alternative touch. Interesting to browse and maybe to buy a souvenir or two that should of course fit in your bike luggage. But above all I find food and accommodation here. There are a few hotels and, a bit further out, a campsite.Campsite info: gwerniago.co.uk.

      The elevation profile of this stage doesn't look so wavy for nothing. It's an up and down today! But one in its most beautiful form. And whenever I'm out of breath, a great short descent or an amazing view cheers me up again. But one after anonther...After Glasbury, I follow the River Wye for quite a while, which is not always visible, but is nonetheless present. Sometimes I drive right next to it, sometimes the small streets and bike paths keep a little distance. However, I always drive through the beautiful Wales countryside, which is a real treat.This area is not very densely populated and since I don't have a lot of provisions with me, I am happy about the few opportunities to take care of myself on the way. The small town of Builth Wells is such a place. My route leads me directly past a supermarket that is integrated into a gas station. The supermarket is well equipped and ensures that I can continue my journey well strengthened.As soon as I'm out of town, it will be wonderfully quiet again. More and more often the climbs take longer. And again and again there is a nice descent. Until I can see the first harbinger of the end of the stage in the distance: the dam of the Caban-Coch reservoir. The route follows the course of its bank for a while and as soon as I have crossed the large bridge over the lake, it goes uphill again. Today's destination, the Claerwen Reservoir, is located at around 380 meters above sea level, embedded in the beautiful hills of the Elan Valley, also known as the "Welsh Lake District" because there are so many reservoirs here.Up here is the perfect place for camping. Wonderful nature, absolute tranquility (apart from the occasional mowing of the sheep) and a view that amazes me. Camping up here is not officially allowed as long as you behave inconspicuously and don't leave any traces, but probably nobody will complain. In any case, the Welsh police usually turn a blind eye. So nothing stands in the way of a perfect experience of nature.By the way, here you will find good tips on wild camping as well as the most important rules of behavior: fraeulein-draussen.de/wildcampen-grossanden-irland/#8222Leave_No_Trace8220.

      My bikepacking tour starts in Newport, in the south of Wales. Just a few streets and I'm out of town and in the middle of the countryside. The first "aha" moment awaits me after a few minutes when I turn onto the cycle path along the Monmoutshire Canal. In a wonderful idyll I follow the old canal system that was once built to transport iron and coal. Since there were a few vertical meters to overcome, countless locks were built into the system at that time, which are well preserved and which I can examine in peace while I am driving along the canal.The next highlight will follow immediately. As soon as I have left the first channel behind me, the next follows - after a very small urban interruption. The "Brecknock and Abergavenny Canal" is also a relic of industrialization and here, too, it is so idyllic nowadays that one can hardly imagine how the raw materials used to be transported by barge to the railroad here. Today only ducks swim here and - very occasionally - small boats with people looking for relaxation on them. In any case, I enjoy this narrow clay path very much.After around 35 kilometers, I feel a little hungry: How good that my route now bends from the canal and I roll relaxed down to Abergavenny. The small town is known as the “gateway to the Brecon Beacons”, the mountain range in the very south-east of Wales. And it’s the same in these mountains - but only after I have strengthened myself properly in the beautiful city. Abergavenny is known for its fine Welsh cuisine.After curling up quietly along the canals, I am now really getting to know Wales. The long, level cycle path along the canal is quite a rarity in Wales: it usually goes either up or down. A long ascent awaits me for the next 20 kilometers, which at the end becomes really steep just before the Gospel Pass. And it's going to be nice: The small streets sometimes run between meter-high hedges and sometimes the view of the mountains opens up in the background. It's green, calm, and beautiful. Very rarely a car, almost always present, however, the sheep who greet me at any time with a friendly "Mäh".At the top of the Gospel Pass, I deserved a break. I look for a beautiful rock, sit on it and just enjoy the wonderful view, which is breathtaking in all directions. And I am gathering my strength for the following descent. It doesn't lead over the street, but over a narrow trail down into the valley, which is beautiful, but shakes me and my gravel bike quite a bit. At the very end there are some big roots and small heels waiting for me. I prefer to push a bit - and don't let it spoil my excellent mood in this great area. Once at the bottom, you can cool off with a dip in the cool Wye and end the evening in the quiet town of Glasbury.I reached the starting point of this tour, Newport, from super quickly by train. There is a non-stop high-speed connection from London that takes just 2.5 hours. Newport itself offers all sorts of accommodations to suit all tastes. My tip: The Ibis Budget, which was also very relaxed when I wanted to take the bike to my room. If you don't want to do without a solid roof over your head when you are out and about, you will find it in Glasbury or in nearby Hay-on-Wye.
