Does Germany Do Prairies?

June 15 - Torgau to Kloden The thunder rumbled and the lightning flashed and the rain pelted down. That, thankfully, all happened during the night and when the day dawned, it was cloudy but fine and hot and muggy after the storm. We collected the all important laundry from reception, where it was waiting for... Continue Reading →

On Form Again

June 14 - Nixenbad to Torgau We were on form today. Back to our signature style. Some wrong turns, plans that didn’t go to plan, an unexpected pit stop. Just so us.

That’s A Bit More Like It

June 13 - Radebeul to Nixenbad Ta-ta trains. Be seein’ ya rails. So long stations. Today we could hit the pedals again and wheel on our way, under our own puff.  When we set off, there was just one, then two little drops of rain under a grey and cloudy sky. It was cooler and... Continue Reading →

We decided on a destination. We consulted travel methods. It was going to involve trains. Oh dear, I thought. Here we go. Buckle... Continue Reading →

June 9 - Schaffhausen to Basel Those things that make riding tricky. Those things that make a day that little bit harder. Those things found us and ganged up on us today. We had a detour. We had hills. We had rain. We packed up the tent under clear skies and the day looked like... Continue Reading →

Well, That Was A Bit Wow!

June 8 - Kreuzlingen to Schaffhausen Every now and again you have that experience where you round a corner and see something that just takes your breath away and is simply…wow! I had one of those today. We set off from Kreuzlingen, back into Germany to Konstanz, introduced ourselves to the Rhein and became its... Continue Reading →

Lake Day And Treat Stay

June 7 - Bodensee With our efforts to ride beside Lake Constance proving unsuccessful in recent days, we decided to get up close and personal with that particular body of water and see it from a different perspective. The water itself.  With a final day to explore Bodensee, we decided to catch a ferry from... Continue Reading →
