It’s 15:45 hrs. and I’m sat in a bus stop at Vieux-Thann 35 miles away from Basel, Switzerland, I set off this morning at 11:35 hrs. and managed to follow the Eurovelo 5 route all the way.
The wine route is proving to be very easy and excellent scenery. I came across a Lidl supermarket in the middle of nowhere. I stocked up on provisions I bought a ham and cheese sandwich which was extremely dry, a tin of casserole for my tea and some cereal bars, which I could have for breakfast with my coffee
Today was uneventful, I spent most of it thinking about Sophie. I coasted along the Eurovelo 5 wine route, it was fairly flat and I only had a bit of a problem when I selected the wrong gear.
I somehow managed to find the EUROVELO 5 and follow it, the route was excellent, I spent hours cycling through the wine region, with the main road in the distance and as I was high on the side of a hill, I could see for miles.
Being 600 miles away from the place you normally call home makes you think! I’m sat in a hammock in pitch No:64 at Camping De Molsheim, the sun is blazing, it’s about 11:30 or 12:30, who knows.
The cost to repair my bike was almost the price of a new one, so I decided just to pick up another bike, At first I couldn’t decide which bike to buy but I opted for the BTWin for a couple of reasons it was cheap and had rigid forks.
