27.04.2013, 2. day, 118 / 231 km, Rückingen

Many positive things can be reported:
My sunscreen will last longer.
Today it was completely dust-free.
Not much water comsumption.
Nearly always tailwind.
The bicycle works great.
The chocolate doesn't melt.
I had a reason to visit a cafe more often.
On the other side it rained the whole day somtimes more,sometimes less, but not as heavily as yesterday.
I could cover the baggage just in time (from the beginning), therefore nearly all things remained dry.
I only had to blow-dry shoes and socks and also the gloves and the headband.
They were very helpful while the temperature was between 4 and 6°C (40 °F).
However you can't drive long distances in such weather conditions.
Therefore I took a campground already after 117 km. It was along the way, appr. 20 km south of Büdingen.
Here in the camping restaurant I got a good schnitzel and can write my report.
For this night they predicted frost. I barely can believe it for it is still raining. I'll see.
And yes - sending of messages ("contact me") is now working.

Nice bike trail along the river Dill

Suddenly and unexpectedly prohibited for bicycles (of course without showing alternatives)
