Trip Log

Notes Actions
Shortly after leaving Tauberbischofsheim, we were riding through a field. Brent looked over and pointed out a boar-shaped rock. As Laura and I looked over at the rock, it started to move, and then two other shapes near it moved as well. The mama boar and her two boar-lets moved off into the long bushes. I’ve never seen a wild boar before, and never expected to see one. It was awesome.
We stopped for a relatively long look at Bad Mergentheim, which was a fantastic place, although somewhat overcrowded and touristy. The gem of the day for us was Weikersheim, which was just really unique compared to the other German towns we’ve visited. The Platz and Schloss were particularly fantastic.
Today was a day of climbing. For most of the day we hardly noticed, as it was a steady slight grade. After Creglingen, we started some more serious climbing, including a LOT of up and down. We had chosen the Campingplatz at Detwang as our destination for the day, and we were glad we did because tomorrow is going to bring a shed-load of climbing up to Rothenburg and then to Schillingsfurst.
