After my 3 days rest at The fantastic Zellingen I set off at 8.45am with the intention of covering about 100km.
The river Main twists and turns in huge sweeping curves like when you shake a child’s skipping rope. There are lots of potential shortcuts but I chose to stick to the river route per my original plan. “George” my bike had a quick service at the weekend and fresh oil applied,his 3rd of the trip .
I felt really good today , the weather has been kind , cloudy but warm 23′ soon I was at Lohr then Markt-Heidenfeld passing some very pretty places .
The water was only cm’s from lapping over the sides!
Soon after I passed Miltenberg and still feeling great rode on . I’m now at Gross Wallstadt , camping on the riverside for free . The has been some kind of festival and there are a few groups of people still camping so I asked if it was ok for the night , they said “yes” so here I stay until the morning then head to Frankfurt . I’ve put in a warmshower request but as yet heard nothing so time will tell . If not I have other options open to me as there a several campsites along the river.
Today I’ve cycled 146km ( approx 85-90 miles , feel fantastic . It’s another very nice evening and now I’m going to make myself something to eat.
