Last night’s hotel had been good but I was very irritated to find we had been billed one euro each for parking our bikes!
Then we were off. The scenery was pretty but un exciting. The route varied between quiet roads, busy roads and long stretches of bike path alongside busy roads. We did get a couple of glimpses of the river but around here it is split into many branches and the bits we were alongside were fairly narrow.
We seem to stop quite often. We have coffee stops, beer stops, pee stops, bum recovery stops, lunch stops and now Magnum stops. The local variety are not quite the real thing but they are pretty good – almost as good as a Mars bar for restoring Elaine’s energy.
Tonight’s stop was in a town that we would not expect to have a decent hotel. But there it was The Leier Bussiness Hotel. Very smart, very new, every thing good, but I think we are the only guests. The place seems to be an offshoot of the Leier factory up the street that appears to manufacture roof tiles.
