Made a mistake today and decided to ride rather than chill in Dusseldorf and watch the sport. After a very groggy start in more ways than one after last night the weather seemed to break up at midday and I decided to get a few miles in. Big mistake as less than 2 hours later the heavens opened again. Not great riding either to be honest with not much to see in Duisburg and the rest of the ride post dull. Only highlight came in Xanten where after another downpour then was a dry spell and had the chance to have a quick look the historic town and also very randomly watch a Scottish festival teaching place in the town!
Heading into Holland tomorrow and Askrigg grey it looks line it should be dry. Fingers crossed!!Read more
