We survived the first night of our tour in the tent well. After the obligatory campsite breakfast, we first look for the local bike mechanic. We hope that he can repair my gear shift in the short term. In fact, he quickly gets the problem under control. Cable changed - adjusted - done.
Then we visit… read more

Today we take a short evening walk and visit the legendary Muur. The ascent is sweaty even on foot and it wasn't because of the weather. The racing cyclists among you will surely know Gerhardsbergen and its "Muur" (wall). This is a particularly steep section of the "Tour of Flanders" with cobblestones… read more

Before we can start our Flanders route tomorrow, we first have to cycle from Aachen to Mastricht. The regional train, which otherwise runs between the two cities, does not run this weekend.
We decide to take the cycle path alongside the road on the N278. That sounds worse than it is, as there aren't many… read more

After we had vacated our beautiful quarters in the "Zur Grünen Eiche" inn, we wanted to go on a short hike in the beautiful surroundings.
In the first part we hike on the Saale cycle path. We are amazed how mountainous it is here. For a normal touring bike, this would not be anything for me. Again and… read more
