    First night wild camping!

    May 7, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Accompanied by Peters friend Andreas for first day motivation, we managed our target of 70km and crossed into the old "West" Germany.

    Camping - wild in the forest edge, beautiful but very damp/dark and full of little spiders!

    We got overtaken by about 20 cyclists but overtook two...no idea how that was possible on the bikes which ride like motorbikes with pedals! When we set off the weight and wobbliness took us a hit by surprise despite test rides with some weight. Thabkfully it settled down quickly and the upper body got used to taking some load.

    Derriere- feels ok!
    Muscle aches - surprisingly none for either of us.
    (Wait until we hit today's hills, yesterday's made 100m climbs feel like kilimanjaro)
    Food- we made a nice one pot meal of Hirse, onion, garlic and vegetable tomato pasta sauce followed by dried fruit and chocolate.
