Day 5 - Ribeauvillé rest day

As it should be on a good rest day, some of our group decided to make it a real rest day and enjoying the beautiful village of Ribeauville, others rode up to the impressive castle on top of the city, some did a short ride on their own and the remaining of the group went with Ramon and Ted on a bigger loop. With very pleasant temperatures and perfect roads sometimes, we all enjoyed it at the maximum today. And the Elzas area is the best place to do that. After the ride there were some hours left to stroll around the city. Great day !!

Day 8 - Warth to Erding

Unfortunately the rain gods were not in the mood today and so we had to ride the whole day in the rain. But very grateful that we had solendid weather the rest of the tour, we took this for granted! A nice long coffeestop in the morning and a interesting tour in Linderhof castle, we choose to ride directly back to Erding. 
Thank you everyone for your company, good riding and fun this week. We hope to see you all somewhere, sometime on another Edelweiss tour

Hi Dave & Sharon, Hope you’re having a great time! Rothenberg and the Night Watchman tour was a highlight over there for us.
