#bezahltekooperation mit #ottolock

After I got the question from somebody if I would be interested in a cooperation with Ottolock I looked at pictures from them and thought: "How the hell should these be safe?" I tested them for three weeks now and I must say, I do really like these superlight and handy locks 😊 (and you can't destroy them as easy as you would guess πŸ˜‰) Its purpose is clearly to lock your love if you just go for a quick jump into the supermarket, having a nice coffee or a quick jump into the lake and you just donΒ΄t want to worry about somebody taking your bike instantly and cycling away with it.

It´s probably not as safe as all these super heavy bulky proper locks, and you can destroy it somehow, BUT even the proper locks are destructible - I learned the hard way 😑 I lost three bikes already in the last 8 years and they were all locked with the safest locks from wellknown brands. So my thought is: it maybe doesnt matter that much if it takes 7 minutes to destroy a lock or 12 - if somebody wants it, they will probably find a way to get it.
There is a link in my profile for the next 24 hours, so if you want to check it out, you can have a look. There are different sizes and colors available. On the picture you can see the biggest size locking my bike around the tree and on the second pic, you can also see the middle size how it is attached to my seat post.

I still have my old, proper, really heavy lock, but I donΒ΄t use it very often right now. Before I go biking IΒ΄m giving it a quick thought where I will need to lock my bike and for how long. If its for going at work, to the supermarket or even a day trip with my gravelbike or my mountainbike the Ottolock is super easy to attach to the bike and also it is super light. So nearly everytime IΒ΄m using the Ottolock now. The heavy lock I only take when I will lock my bike for longer periods of time.

Also I thought about if its a good option for taking on a biketrip. Here I guess, you really have to think about situations where you will lock your bike - I would definetly consider taking only the Ottolock with me.

I'm curious about your experiences or thoughts 😊

Went for a casual hike instead of climbing. Too hot for sports at the moment here in #germany πŸ˜“πŸ’¦

Couple of weeks ago on #mallorca...
Right now I'm completly back in "normal" working life. Well, it really depends how you define normal. A year ago my "normal" life looked completly different: riding my bike for days and then having restdays. It felt like a normal procedure as well, riding my bike was my main task. Now I'm back working and I enjoy that as well. New challenges, this time for my mental fitness :) I'm just missing the simple outdoor life from time to time. But what are weekends for? πŸ€—

Some of you asked: Yes, I'm gonna give some more talks and not only in #dresden πŸ˜‰
In november this year and Spring 2019 I'll will talk and show pictures in some of the @globetrotterde stores. How exciting :) Hope to see you there πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I was approximately 1/3 of my trip alone. I enjoyed it. But after a while I also realized that I'm more of a social person. I just love having good company and sharing laughters...
Are you more the lonesome wanderer or more social person? ☺️

Pretending to be hiking on Mallorca πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ With @jahsahra @b_icy_cle @billezi @kuuli @wikinger.reisen and others

I was on a four-day-kayak-trip over the long weekend in the northern part of Germany. The last day we had to get up very early and as hard as it is: it was so worth it. The calmness and tranquility is special and you don't get that any other time of the day. The light is super beautiful and you feel like you are the only one in the world πŸŒ…

We came as a bunch of strangers and left as friends πŸ˜€
I spent the last week on the island of #mallorca and I met absolutly wonderful people there. You know these kind of situations when you will spend a whole week with strangers and you don't know what to expect? The best happend! I just came back with a heart full of joy and lovely memories! Thank you for the wonderful time! Thank you guys @lenabdorf @kuuli @jahsahra @billezi and the others :)
I'll show and tell you later what we did there 😁 πŸ“Έ

It's always handy to have a bag with you. Even better when it's suitable for your bike rack πŸ˜‰
I was always looking for a nice bike bag which is fine for the city, not too big, not too outdoorish but still practical. That's why I really like the new #ollicycle bag from #zweibags. They are practical AND suitable for the city πŸ˜„πŸ‘ #fahrradtasche

Had an amazing weekend mountainbiking and climbing with my brother @beckeantonio
So good to have family, a friend and a partner for all these outdoor sports in one person 😘
Enjoyed the beauty of the #saxonswitzerland in spring... Still have sore muscles though πŸ˜‚ have to get back into climbing ;)
