Cycle trip 2013. Germany

I traversed Germany’s fields, forests and coasts in the sunshine. Weather sometimes threatened, but, it didn’t rain on me. Part of my cycle trip from Eindhoven to the North Cape.

Previous country: The Netherlands
Next country: Poland

Day 1. 166km. Eindhoven – Sythen: Ed accompanied me to the Dutch-German border on a sunny, pleasant day.
Day 2. 128km. Sythen – Bad Essen: The excitement was getting to me, and now also the lack of sleep. Today was a cycle through the haze in my mind and the grey skies in the heavens.
Day 3. 147km. Bad Essen – Bremen: Sun, lakes, swarms of bugs, cycling accompaniment, the Bremen town musicians and fresh asparagus looking out over a lake at sunset.
Day 4. 137km. Bremen – Hamburg: Straight road, slight bend, straight road. Bush bash, soft sand and big rocks. Lovely afternoon and evening with Kai and Kersten from the cycling forum.
Day 5. 126km. Hamburg – Flessenow: One could almost call today hot – if I forget what hot means in Australia. And sunny. From main roads to little side roads, to soft sand challenges. From fields to forests, from rather flat to quite hilly. From cycling in a group of 3, back to alone. A nice day.
Day 6. 157km. Flessenow – Stralsund: A race against the clouds to Stralsund. Wind and dark grey clouds behind me, I hurtled through the Mecklenburg Vorpommern fields.
Day 7. 118km. Stralsund – Swinoujscie: A race against the clouds to Stralsund. Wind and dark grey clouds behind me, I hurtled through the Mecklenburg Vorpommern fields.
