Decided to try another hut tonight. This one had a cycleway/path running just in front of it. So up early in the morning and have eveything packed before the first runner of the day passes by.
Looked at another shelter for the night, too close to houses and very exposed. Heading to nearest campsite on GPS and it was more like a hostel. A group of Trike Riders where hold the semi-annual meet, with the bad weather there was still space.
Another friendly group – the language barrier caused a few chuckles.
Nearest bike shop was in Ankum, they had overshoes – yeah.
Riding the bike without luggage showed how effort shifting that lot about is – speed was about 5mph higher today.
After seeing the snow this morning, climbed backed into the sleeping for a bit and had a very late start.
Decided just to find a nearby campsite, and spend a couple of nights there. Gives a chance to ride around a bit looking for a bike shop for new overshoes, mine have fell apart.
Found a nice hut away from houses, decided to spend the night here. Cleared out some of the rubbish that had been left by previous users, now cleaner than when I arrived.
The cross over to Germany was noticeable in the change to the cycle infrastructure. After cycling through Holland there is rather a large difference – still better then what the UK calls cycle ways though.
First Warm Showers hosting – a very friendly family who make you feel like you are one of there own.
Last night in Holland, just about got the site where I planned on camping and the trailer broke again. This time it was one of connecting arms – time for some serious luggage rearrangement.
Fortunately a nice big bin near the site so the trailer went in there along with some luggage.
While having a late breakfast/early lunch met a person who had hosted Raphel & Petra – I appeared to be a talking point 🙂
Tried o make arrangements via Warm Showers later on for tommorow, but with the short notice and it been a Friday everybody appeared to have to things already planned.
