Today dawned cold and clear and we anticipated a warm up. So sorry. It didn't happen. We headed out by 9 AM and soon the clouds gathered and numb fingers were zipping up all closures against the wind and ultimately the driving rain. Now I know what I forgot; a rain cover for my bike helmet and windshield wipers on my glasses. Reinhard biked with us with the plan being after arrival in Limburg, he would get a regional train back to Wetzlar, pick up their car, and drive back to our overnight hotel, the Hotel Zum Eisenbahn. Holy Schlomoly, I am so glad they were leading the way. By the end of the day as we finally made our way through the heavy trafficed streets of Limburg (no bike paths) we were pretty well bushed. The distance today was a little bit more than yesterday coming in at 73 kilometers. This makes a total distance biked in two days to about 85 miles. I would be more accurate but I am so overjoyed to get my balky computer working again I don't want to leave this hot spot in the hotel restaurant where, with the help of Jennifer, Jenny and Yvonne, the sweet ladies tending the hotel, who obviously are also computer experts, we were able to get my computer working again.  Therefore I have quickly posted the last three day's activities. Lack of a daily update is only due to conditions with wireless hook-up totally beyond my control.
