Gets inside your head...J.C. is just class!
|Detours not shown, strangely enough...|
It is becoming more difficult to get out and start at a reasonably early hour: the later start guarantees a late finish, naturally...right out of the blocks this morning and I was sent up 15% ramps. Language was choice...
|Spot the cross on the RHS?|
|This is just perfect.|
I have relied on online route-planners and am totally at their mercy: the recurring feature is to route me through some fairly dumb-ass places. Thing is, I can't complain too much as this was my er, preparation. Still, when you see some of the choices the software made...
|Respect to Continental Tyres for taking all this.|
|Could there *be* anymore twists & turns?|
|Oh come on, this is someone's farm.|
|Oh yeah, this is standard for cycle-ways. Joy.|
|HAL, you taking the p*ss, or what?|
Some of the detours were exceptional work and you could only laugh and accept the bonus yards...although temperatures were up to 33c by lunch...great for biergartens, but not so much for me!
|Some of the detours were alright...|
|I will concede R.O.W. on this occasion...|
|Yeah, you may be melting but their towns are immaculate!|
|Ah, we meet again 5%. Just how I like my bier!|
|On the run in to Marktheidenfeld...yes!|
|It'll do I suppose...|
There was a big smile when I wheeled round to the front of that night's nice hotel, in full view of quite a few locals enjoying dinner and and a drink. I joined them pretty soon. A daft day all round but when aren't they, hah-hah! Car-crash stats below...
Ok, now onto today's wee jaunt...
