Today I liked being a cyclist!
It was an excellent ride of about 52 kms following the river via a town XXX where we had lunch and then through rolling country. Weather was perfect and the terrain benign as we crossed the border.
I was hoping to be frisked at the border but there was nobody there, no checkpoint charlie and just a couple of low key signs = photo opportunties that we were crossing into German speaking Austria. The colourful green and yellow paddocks were large and the 2 storey houses with the clichéd window boxes were larger and the whole scene seemed very orderly and affluent. I just love the German language – it also is orderly and neat.
Explored the walled town with moat before dinner with the third appel strudel we have had, all different. Will attempt the whole 82 km ride tomorrow.
