Warm with a breeze and mobile office on the back. Busy cycleways but empty roads. 102 km in Luxembourg, 11 km in France and 53 km in Germany. When I arrived home, I thought I could just repeat it.
Route: followed the Mosel-Radweg, Saar-Radweg, Hunsrück-Radweg (which was also shared with Rheinland-Pfalz Radroute and Ruwer-Hochwald-Radweg) to Morbach then followed the Nahe-Hunsrück-Mosel Radweg to Neumagen-Dhron, went back to the Mosel-Radweg and to Trier from Schweich via Ruwer (because the Mosel-Radweg near Ehrang is not pleasant).
25 km on unpaved tracks; where tracks were all maintained except on some parts of the Nahe-Hunsrück-Mosel Radweg where it was quite bumpy.
It was hot and soggy at the beginning, but with the altitude gain and the forest it got cooler. Had (late) lunch in ALDI Hermeskeil and dinner in Trier before catching the train back.
Bike tour around Trier on cycling routes. Tough wind during the 50 first km! No wonder why everybody was riding the other direction ;-). Several segments unpaved. Beautiful scenery.
Enjoyed the weather, no effort until I figured out that with a little boost I could be in the enchanted forest during golden hour. Long moments of discussion with fellow cyclists visiting the country. Passed by inline skaters on the slope down to Echternach while I was already at 45 km/h.
And some missing pictures from the end of May while transforming commutes to work into a daily adventure.
Followed Sentier du Sud from Hellange to Esch/Alzette, but lost it a couple of times. So bumpy that my butt hurts!! 3 minutes of rain. All of this with my mobile office in the backpack, but no call received 😉
