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.
After been unable to make arrangements through warm showers found a super little campsite called De Noten Wei – a very nice family run site, along with normal showers, none of this purchase a token for 5 minutes.
Managed to bodge the trailer enough with zip ties and bungees to get it out of the forest. A helpful person from a nearby cafe took me down to car repair place where they managed to weld it back together.
Still dumped some of the stuff – got to figure out more to get rid of.
Resting up at a campsite to tighten center stand – doesn’t like this bike too well. Readjust bar tape on one handle bar as it’s come loose.
Trying to reduce the amount of bulk, I had dumped half the clothes before setting off initially, now dumped another lot along with the biolite charge kettle (freebie from work) that won’t charge stuff anymore. Thats a bit of wieght and bulk reduced.
Tried to do a bit shopping, unlike the UK just about everything is closed on a Sunday in Holland, just have to buy some once I set off in the morning.
Attempted to take some piccys of the offshore windfarm – managed to make it out of Amsterdam eventually, got a little confused.
The cycle paths are taking a little getting used to after riding in the UK only, priority to cyclists is a new thing for me
