After our earliest start of 9:15 we headed off towards Gunzenhausen /Wald . It was a beautiful day. A local on an ebike stopped us and tried to convince us our planned route was rubbish. As I had programmed the route into my GPS, I needed a convincing argument to change. As it turned out, the route we took was both scenic, not too hilly and with minimum time on the road.
We cycled through amazingly green fields and thru lots of medieval towns. At one stop we were told of some roman ruins and took s detour to see the corn field where they lay.
A late morning tea was outdoors in the town square at Wassertrudingen. Being outside was popular today.
We then that the final section going north west to our booked hotel in Gunzenhausen.
Once again it was a mix of bike paths, rural roads and a few busier roads. We did not realize till getting close that our hotel was actually around the lake about 5km from the main town in a little village called Wald.
The hotel was a horse ranch with a large indoor paddock viewed from dining room. Lots of people arrived to wash and ride their horses.
After a simple lunch at hotel, R&G had a rest and sleep, and I went for a ride around the lake via Ornbau. There was lots of bike paths, as the while area looks set up as a tourist area with lots of outdoor activities. The big lake even had. A beach and sail bards for hire.
I bought some supplies and beer nuts and added 35km doing the lake loop.
We ate a good dinner at the hotel. The cook was also the waiter and cashier and loved his work!
We listen to NSW win game 1 of "state of origin" rugby league game from a recording I made on Internet radio, hot spotting off Geoff's mobile with unlimited data.
More sunny days ahead, as we head to Nuremberg tomorrow.
Summary: 83 km. sunny
