Charlotte, Button and I are finally on the road again. We are cycling the Naturlandet Rundt. It is an 8 around the Danish Islands Lolland and Falster. You can read about the full trip here: day0, day1
Today I took a lot of pictures, I hope you enjoy them!
The day started with sunshine, maybe that is why I was running late in the morning again. Around 10:30 am I had finished packing, but still needed to put sun-lotion on and do laundry. Which I finished around 11 am. Then I had a nice chat with another camper from Germany and when I finally wanted to start my bicycle computer froze and I had to restart it. So I left the Campground at 11:15 am.
First of I was cycling through a forrest. (I knew this part of today from day9 of last year’s tour.) And only 20 minutes later I took my first break. When I am leaving that late so much time already past since breakfast.
4.2km in 21:52 min with an average speed of 11.6 km/h.
For the next 15 km we cycled through more forrests. Which are nice, because they shield you from the wind, but do not have that many benches for breaks. I just took 2 quick pictures of the houses that also have plants on the walls, not just the roof:
Now it was back to the coast and back in the wind which was kind today, coming from the side or the back. But I just had to take a break, even though it was just beside the road:19km in 1:36 h with an average speed of 11.7 km/h
While standing there I got passed by a lot bicycle tourists. Shortly later I had to snap another picture:
Then we cycled into Stubbekøbing and saw all the other bicyclist waiting for the ferry. Just like us last year. Maybe that should have told me something: From this point on there were no more signs for the Naturlandet Rundt. So I had to find my way with my not very detailed map and the Naturlandet App. But first a break in Stubbekøbing:
26.4km in 2:13 h with an average speed of 11.8 km/h.
Next was the already mentioned battle to find the way and then the Shelterplads. It is pretty hidden and looks like nobody found it for a while. I have it all to myself, there is only a danish couple with a RV at the parking lot.
We cycled today:
Total km: 62.1
2:52:25h moving Charlotte
average speed: 11.9km/h
max speed: 25.7km/h
840m of climbing and 836m of descending

I am not sure what happened with the look of the writing, I hope you can still read it well. I do not know what to do to make it look normal.
I will be writing again tomorrow so you can pedal along with us! Do you have any questions? Requests?
keep exploring and smiling
Moin, toll, dass du uns wieder mit auf Reisen nimmst. Wie geht es dir mit dem Wind? Es war doch recht windig an der Küste die letzten Tage. Danke für die vielen Fotos. Es sieht aus, als ob du durch wenig besiedeltes Gebiet fährst. Eine Frage habe ich wegen deines Sattelbezugs: Was machst du, wenn es regnet. Kannst du ihn abnehmen? Ist er mit Gummizug? Hab eine gute Fahrt! Allzeit Luft im Reifen! Liebe Grüße
Der Wind kommt sowieso immer aus der falschen Richtung. 😉 Der Satelbezug geht schon ab, ist nur festgebunden, aber wenn es wirklich regnet ist mir das ziemlich egal, wenn alles nass ist, kann der Po auch noch nass sein. Da das Poly-Garn ist, trocknet es auch sehr schnell wieder.
The translation for my english readers: I got asked what I do with my seat-cover when it rains. If I could take it off.
My answer is that I could take it off, but I never did. If it is raining I just decide I can live with a wet behind when everything else is already wet anyhow. And I crocheted the cover out of polyester-yarn, so it dries up really fast.
