Adventure 13 – Gersbach and Wind Turbines

Yes! This Sunday I went on a solid 3h bike ride with a friend. We cycled up almost 600 meters to Gersbach which made for a fast and fun decent on the way home.

Here's a view from about half way up.

Only a couple months ago wind turbines were installed by Gersbach.

We decided to take a closer look.

These things are truly impressive. They had a 115m rotor diameter and were over 200 meters high in total. They look so innocent from afar, but the speed of the rotor tip is over 30m/s.

Overall it was remarkably easy cycling uphill with the racing bike. But greater than the ease was the pleasure. It's a totally different feel. Am sure this won't be my last trip if this kind.
