This was the last part of our fabulous Northern European Adventure. A 10 day, 550 km ride, through East Germany and Denmark. No mountains, but hillier than expected, and many deep forests. This was a self-guided trip, but there was a large group of us, meeting at various places along each route, and always at the end of the day. These were all strong cyclists and really great to be with.

We’ve cycled a lot in Germany, but only in the southern part of the former West Germany. Something I noticed on this trip, was that many of the people of my generation did not smile much. Stasi influence from former days?
