Saturday, July 31, 2021 | Michaela Achatzi / Ted Goslinga | Europe

Day 1 - Arrival day

Finally back on tour!!

After a heavy year of corona crisis, finally all the tours start to pick up again. We are very happy that we have a great group of riders from  the USA  who flew into Munich to join us for the first Best of Europe tour again!

Without having  much problems everyone was on time and excited to go on this  really nice tour to see the really heart of Europe and ride through it's  gorgeous landscape 

We started out in Erding , east of Munich with a nice sunny sky and a good riding temperature our way heading into a northwestern direction

We stopped in Wolznach and drank some refreshments and coffee at a nice terrace in the center of the old city

A great day for riding and for the riders a good  opportunity tomget used to their bikes and the local traffic and its habits

And around 5.30 pm we rode intto the beautiful old citycenter of Rothenburg

in the evening some customers  joined us for a walking city tour with the famous Nightwatcher. A very entertaining guy who has a couple of nice stories to tell during the walk

A little bonus was a Simon and Garfunkel teibite band which was a very nice  ending of this first riding day

Back in our lovely start hotel in Erding, Germany
Lovely welcome dinner with an excellent dessert

The ‘Nightwatcher’ in the city of Rothenburg. A great way to learn about the medieval stories about what was going on in this place at that time

Day 4 - Riding day Heidelberg to Ribeauville

With a nice riding temperature we left the lovely city of Heidelberg to bend off southward. With a first stretch on the highway we took the exit to the  famous Black Forest. A great way to sharpen the riding skills. Nice long  swerving roads and great views put a wide smile on everybody's face. 
Later it became even  better with numerous switchbacks and more challenging curves. After a relaxed lunch at the cosy Mummelsee ( lake) we rode further down  and then westboud over the river Rhine into France where we will stay for two nigjts in the pitoresque village of Ribrauvillé

A lot of very nice castles along the route
Lovely old center of Ribeauville in France
