Today was the longest day of cycling so far, 90km with a fastest downhill speed of 58kmh...😀 some fairly nasty hills too add to the mix of course.
We had our first puncture, a board tack IN THE FOReST! Who brings tacks to the forest, eh? Like a pitstop pro the inner tubes were changed in 15 mins and we were back on our way.
I consigned the sleeves of my useless Tresspass rain jacket to the bin of a bus stop in a little village where we sheltered from rain and where a group of 3 children who had just got off the school bus were giggling at us. The two boys sent the girl over to ask 20 x questions, including why Peter was wearing sandals.😀
In NBG were were greeted by Peter's friend Philip who was a fabulous host providing beer, showers and a comfy bed for the night. Just what we needed. We ate at the NGB equivalent of Hofbrauhaus in Munich which was very cool despite having a pub sign from the town my old office was based in. Work..? What work!
A quick trip to Sportscheck made a hefty dent in my travel kitty but I now no longer fear the next rain downpour 😀Read more
