Profecturus went cycling.

The fourth canto of the Purgatory, that of the lazy: "O friar, going up what brings?" And in Carpineti I won the temptation to climb again - thank goodness, after two weeks of complete inactivity it was more than enough! Many cyclists and many cyclists up and down Baiso, few cars, people are on vacation somewhere else.
Profecturus and Valè went for a bike ride.

Beautiful beautiful we visit Trier all morning, convinced to take the train to the destination. Once at the station, we discover that the Trier-Luxembourg line is interrupted for "Baustelle", work in progress: it will only be possible to travel along the railway line along the Moselle, and then continue… read more

Here, that's how we like it: the track almost always runs along the river, away from the road. The climate today is perfect, slightly covered and slightly breezy, it runs smoothly up to Trier and it is decided to end the tour here, once it is discovered that the kilometers traveled are more than 700… read more

Today, to avoid the boring cycle path along the busy road, which made us a little disgusted yesterday, I invent a self-made route using komoot: we move to the right bank, which promises a quiet single track between the river and the hills. But the dirt road and some difficult counter-slope slow us down… read more

Nice to enter Koblenz through the park. City in a splendid position, at the confluence of the Rhine and the Moselle. To admire the entire loop, one would have to go up by cable car to the fort overlooking the city, but Valè is categorical: neither by bicycle nor by cable car, it is the verb "to climb… read more

Mainz is beautiful, lively and flowery, but this is where another Teutonic myth is debunked: even in Germany, museums are closed on Mondays! But how ?! They weren't the ones who protested in front of Italian museums: "Warum closed on Monday ?!" And so we miss the unmissable Gutenberg museum, where moreover… read more

As expected, today we pedal part time: first the body, then the spirit. As for the body, a lucullian breakfast, for which we have now let ourselves go: I went as far as cucumbers and smoked salmon, passing through the cheese and sausage selections, naturally after running out of sweet options (cake… read more

The cycle path from Germersheim to Speyer (Speyer) deserves. Even the historic center of Speyer, with its immense cathedral, the largest Romanesque cathedral, they say, in the world, so big that it doesn't even seem Romanesque. Here there would be a lot of history to review, starting with the famous… read more

Cheerful and peaceful awakening in the semi-deserted meadow of the campsite. A makeshift kiosk offers croissants and coffee; after our consumption - apparently the only customers - it is closed and demobilized. We leave to wander Karlsruhe, which in my imagination should have sumptuous spas: perfect… read more
