cycling through a crazy world – day 3

Moin

Button, Charlotte and I are still on our tour on the Leine-Heide-Radweg. (day1; day2) And today we really cycled the route… only one small part was different, but there were no more bicycle-route signs, and according to the next town, it was the right way ūüėČ

In general, I am still hoping my body will get used to it by tomorrow ūüėČ

But first I have to tell you something about yesterday: This was my first camping ground without a kitchen. So I had to use my camp stove for the first time. Can you imagine I carried it around my whole trip through Denmark and never used it?

Well, I was a little scared. To start a fire or not being able to get it running. I am happy to report it was pretty easy and worked well:

day3-1

cooking in the rain… ūüėČ

I left around 10 again… or let us say a little later because a nice woman asked me some curious questions.

And shortly after I really found the signs for my bicycle route. Even though their placement is terrible sometimes. But there were other signs on my path today, and I just had to take a picture, just in case you did not know there are some parts of the Camino de Santiago already starting in Germany:

See the shells?

The route led through forests and fields on some small empty streets. So I reached this nice bench with table and took a break:

11.67 km in 0:52:21h

Shortly after the signs left me and I got some help from a woman who did send me another way to the town I had to reach next. She said she prefers this route, so I actually do not want to know how the other way would have been. But maybe that is only the third day talking. ūüėČ

In Bad Fallingbostel the signs still weren’t there, and I shortly considered just to take the car-route but decided for the original route in the end. Which I found with some troubles. And now, the second break:

24.41km in 2:00:41

Some km later, I passed this sign.

day3-10

When you are on your way from Bad Fallingbostel to Hodenhagen, this might confuse you a little bit. ūüėČ

But the streets and ways worked well, so I reached Hodenhagen, where I met 2 women looking for a cab/taxi to get to the Serengeti Park. We had a nice chat, during the last break:

40.57km in 3:11:32h

Just a few km later I reached the campground for tonight, which also works as a pilgrims hostel for the Camino de Santiago. They also gave me this sticker:

day3-14

The day on a map and in numbers:

 

day3-15

(pink line)

44.26km in 3:30:32h, which means I slowed down again, but I was pushing through some towns today: 12.61km/h average speed

Total km so far: 159,15

The campsite yesterday did cost me 15‚ā¨, today it is 11,50 ‚ā¨, I also had to add more high-speed internet again to my cellphone for 5 ‚ā¨.

Buttons favourite part of the day: that it did not rain as much today and he could dry up

Charlotte’s favourite part of the day: rolling down some hills without headwind stopping her

My favourite part of the day: probably the shower I am about to take… and sleep…

I will write again tomorrow, so you can pedal this adventure with me.

keep exploring and smiling
