Today we started the actual bicycle trip. But before that, we woke up late at our couch surfing hosts and made them Israeli breakfast – shakshuka.
That left us about half a day for cycling. Getting around the route is really easy as you have signs throughout the whole way.
The route is very flat. I was surprised to realize how perfectly flat it is almost the whole time. The route is actually very varied and goes sometimes near the Mosel river, sometimes through little towns and sometimes through the plenty of wine fields of the Mosel valley.
It is also recommended to try the wine, and get something to eat on the way.
We kept cycling till we reached Neumagen-Dhorn, meaning we cycled for 45 kilometers (28 miles) in the half day we actually rode.
In Neumagen-Dhorn we were easily managed to find a Zimmer to stay in. Its just a nice room in a family’s house. We are very glad for deciding not to pre-book accommodation for the bicycle trip. It allows us to be flexible and cycle for as long as we want and stop whenever we feel like it.
