#tourdugermany open letter to the organization of the tour: Please no full-moon rides any more. I understand that the marketing department the full moon rides has introduced because of the new target group. But if you ask me, it is to dangerous for the riders. The new target group like squirrels, rats, mouses, dears, frogs and bads runs over when you don’t expect it. And the holes in road big as a half frontwheel in the dark, often you will see then a little late 😉 I don’t argument about everything, the introduction of the podiumgirls i like! Kind regards, Paul Ram
#tourdugermany Yesterdag i ate a good meal at the hostel. Today its my sister Annemiek’s birthday, 30 BAM! Because i can’t celebrate the birthday together i’ll eat a cake for every 10 years. Today it was a 126km stage in a nice environment. I had to watch out for the blackberry bushes on the road. Every disadvantage has his advantage would we say in dutch. Only 35km and i’m in Berlin center at the AlexanderPlatz! Ps. Who is celebrating his birthday next week? 😉
Yesterday had a relax evening. If i had to describe the stage of today it was a 6.5 hour spinning course with $%^&*( steep hills and strokes of cobblestones who are even worthless as in the tour Parijs Roubaix. Tonight i will take care of my ass with some Nivea balsem. Ive waited long but today was the day, the flat tire! Ive booked a nice room with a swinging sofa in the garden and evening sun!
#tourdugermany Tonight i slept like a baby. After a compulsory trip trough the city i found the right way to get out. Hills for breakfast with mountainbiketrails! The weather was perfect for cycling, finally i’ve seen the sun also. Today i cycled 190km. Now im relaxing in the trailer, the host know what i like!
#tourdugermany Today it the tour! The stage was originally 160km to Paderborn but the train won’t go further so ik had to ride 211 km today. Tonight i booked a room by airbnb on a university. only 11 euro’s. Tomorrow i’ll sleep in a retro 70’s trailer with campfire! Would you travel with airbnb and get a $25 coupon, go to http://www.airbnb.nl/c/paulr24287 and activate your account? Ps i left the little dog at home 🙂
On my cyclingtrip through Germany I slept in the “Bed and Breakfast” of Hans and Anne that is situated in the small village of Buchhorst, belonging to the town of Lauenburg. Lauenburg is a small town near the Elbe. So the Bed and Breakfast is perfect for cyclists who are cycling the Elbe rad weg.
