As we can't stay in one place for a long time, we decided to go back touring. At the moment, border crossing is not even possible in EU countries when you travel by bike. So we biketour in Germany. Luckily, there's plenty of nature and bike paths to explore 😀
After a few day tours with our road bikes this week, we left Warburg, my home town. The weather was perfect, blue sky, sun, a bit chilly maybe, but good temperature for cycling. Our idea is to go East to Niesky first to visit Herbert's parents which will take us a few days.
Our trip today took us to Mühlhausen where we could stay with family friends. The road was pretty nice: remote small roads, bike paths, and cute towns. We even saw 2 foxes, a beaver and lots of birds on the way. The route also followed rivers Fulda and Werra for some kilometers. In Hannoversch-Münden, we had a short stop at the start of river Weser as well.
Some 45km before our destination, the hardest part of the route started as we had to climb Eichsfeld. It wasn't a long pass or anything similar, but quite exhausting with already 90km in our legs and on the first day of touring. Plus - what a surprise - we had headwinds again. Most of the time, the wind comes from Western directions here. However, when we go East, the wind obviously changed as well 😏
So we had a tough day which we finished with pizza, kebab and a couple of beers.Read more
