The bend in the MainJune 7, 2017 in Germany
We chose the long route, following the Main from just north of Wurstburg then north to Gemunden, then the river turns south. We're now at Markheidenfeld after a 70 K ride. The highlight of the day was watching the progress of a cruise boat through a lock. The passengers must get used to groups of cyclist staring down at them as they go through. Today was cold and showery so only a couple of hardy souls were out on the front deck. We did like the mini golf set up on the deck, I wonder how many balls go overboard. All the deck chairs and sunshades are folded down, I assume to go under the bridge unless it was too cold for deck games today. It's a tight fit as it goes through, good steering!
The showers today meant the wet weather gear came out a bit although it never lasted long. Tomorrow the weather clears.
Our room tonight looks out over the river, too cold to eat at the restaurant next door though so we opted for a cosy establishment around the corner.Read more
