Trip Log

Notes Actions
Today we rode the remainder of the Middle Rhein, which was more crazy castle town. We were sad that we didn't have the bicycle superhighway, but it was still just awesome to have had that yesterday. We spent a fair amount of time in Bingen, and Laura and Brent climbed up to the "Castle" there (which is still the active town admin offices). Then we took the ferry over to Rudesheim and back into the "industrial" part of the Rhein.

We found our Campingplatz after a weird, unnecessary detour around Schloss Park. We're staying at the same place where Brent and I stayed two years ago, and where we met Simon, the motorcycle tourist from the UK. It's in Wiesbaden… I’ve been calling Mainz, but it’s really across the river from Mainz. Oops.
It’s our second-last day of riding, and tomorrow will be a very easy day. Only about 30km to Kelsterbach. That will give us time to find a Waschsalon. We’ve been trying for a few days, now, to do a load of laundry.
I’m super impressed with my Microsoft Surface. It’s the Surface 2 (not Pro) that I bought in early 2015. It took a beating for six months on our tour, and to be honest, I didn’t really expect it to make it through THAT tour, nevermind making it all the way to, and through, THIS tour. Way to go little computer-buddy!
