We left Stuttgart yesterday and headed off along our next river, the Neckar. We were in for a long hot day, 79 K to Heilbronn. The bike path was very busy, everyone was out to enjoy the sun. The beer gardens along the route were especially popular but we stuck to mineral water when we stopped about 11am. Lots of vineyard up the steeper sides of the river. We found a very fine Japanese restaurant for dinner, no Swabian options around here.
We headed out this morning through building sites and industrial areas but we soon left that behind. It was a much cooler day and despite the early clouds no rain, so a beautiful days ride.
