5. 14th July

Hook of Holland, Dusseldorf, Koln, Mainz,  Frankfurt, going on to Nuremburg, Regensburg. Passau then along the Danube into Vienna.

Hello everyone.

I spoke to David last night, all well apart from wet weather and the industrial outskirts of Dusseldorf which is where they ended up under a railway bridge for the night. Not their finest hour!

486 miles so far, averaging 60.6 miles a day.

The frame of David's trusty pop up tent snapped so is now held together with duck tape and a teaspoon, very inventive!

Today they leave the cycle paths along the river which add  a 100 miles, so they are taking a short cut across country. This could be very hilly and knowing from experience all about short cuts I wonder if they might be better to stick to the river! Time will tell.

A valiant effort, thought the duck tape would come in handy. Did ask Bruce in a text yesterday if they are having fun......haven't had a reply yet!

Very impressed by your efforts so far. Hope you are finding some time to enjoy German food and drink. Good luck on the 'short' cut.

So impressed - all thinking of you at QPA

I knew David would involve ducks somewhere along the line.

Julie - thank you for the comment - very droll! Made me laugh!
