Today’s 42 km cycle ride was a gentle tour of Teverener Heide just over the border in nearby Germany.

This is a large nature park located on land reclaimed from sand and gravel extraction pits.

I have cycled here many times in the past 18 months.

The rides are always different and provide some truly spectacular images.

Cycle tracks and footpaths are many and today I discovered quite a few new routes across the moorlands and forests.

Today’s featured image is a large memorial stone for a man who was instrumental in the landscaping of the area after sand and gravel extraction ceased many years ago.
