Day 14 : Going cross country

Up early, to find the river by the campsite blanketed by mist.

Fog on the Tyne..

Once the sun made its way into the valley it soon cleared away the mist. After my porridge and coffee, one of the caravaners at the campsite gave me a banana in respect of my journey ahead.

The morning’s cycling was on decent tarmaced paths alongside the river. Nice and flat and comfortable cycling.

I saw lots of vineyards today but I’ve not tried any of the German wine yet. I think I reached Würzburg around 11.30.

I stopped for a ‘proper’ coffee in the town centre.

Not long after leaving I decided to divert from the main cycling route which was heading North with the river, and make my way East across country towards Nürnberg. The roads soon got very hilly, as I cycled from village to village.

Looking for a place to stay

With no campsites nearby (this was proper farming country) and a need to charge my devices, I found a guesthouse that was on the way and checked in.

Dinner was a carp with salad on the side.

Karlstadt am Main to Market Taschendorf, 103 km. Total so far = 1,233 km.

  1. No picture of the carp? Looks fishy.

  2. 102km on only porridge banana coffee and fish salad not bad going! Never knowingly had carp. I know they can grow to enormous sizes and are popular in some parts of the continent.

    1. I had a potato soup for starters too. Today’s breakfast has just more than made up for it.
