Tour de Europe – May/June 2019

Long term members, and leaders, of our club, Karen and Rod Davis are once again off in Europe, mainly riding, but also now walking some gorgeous trails.

In Rod’s words – “Cycling (along the upper Elbe River in Eastern Germany near the Czech border) today was idyllic. Sunshine on our backs, gentle breezes and we were kings and queens of the road at last. Thousands joined us.

Limestone cliffs narrowed so ship whistles echoed. Kayaks and canoes had men paddling and drinking beer. Little ferries linked the banks. People of all ages were in the sun.

Every little cafe, was crowded and beer, coffee and food was consumed. They love to eat and drink.”

It sounds tough, and probably would be classed as a hard trip!
