Go Czech againJune 21, 2020 in Czech Republic ⋅ 🌧 12 °C
When we woke up this morning and looked at the rain radar, we were sure, we would get pretty wet pretty soon. However, we still went on the bikes to get at least some kilometres in.
The first part of today's section went along river Danube, so this was easy rolling. Then we headed into a hilly region East rather than following the Danube. The new bike path was an old railway, so climbing was relatively smooth. Around noon, we had to stop for something to drink as it had started to rain. Luckily, it didn't go for long, so we could continue after about an hour.
For some reason, we always missed the rain. We cycled on very wet roads and were surrounded by a dark grey sky most of the time, but stayed dry.
Climbs got harder the closer we got to the Czech border again. The elevation gain up to Waldkirchen was 14%. We were hoping for a bakery, but everything was closed. So we just ate a whole cake we had carried for an emergency.
Afterwards, we continued our trip, crossed the Czech border and started looking for some accommodation. This wasn't easy this time: most smaller guesthouses were closed, the bigger ones fully booked and the campground closes. In the end, we found a small apartment to spend the night.Read more
