Soon we found ourselves in a nice park along the river and some lakes formed by the Pegnitz. There we ran into an unexpected road hazard -- geese in the road.
Beware of Geese
My Dad took this picture as I was trying to take a picture of the geese, not run into any of them and also miss the pedestrian going for a morning walk. All collisions were successfully avoided.
A short while later we arrived back at our starting point -- Nürnberg Hauptbahnhof.
We caught the next train to Bamberg where we had an interesting problem -- the bicycle car was absolutely full. Bikes were literally piled one on top of another. We took off our panniers and stacked them on the stairs to the upper deck and our bikes were small enough that we could squeeze into the vestibule. I had talked about getting off at Hirschaid but there really wasn't a chance (and my Dad was tired). So we went on to Bamberg (where the bike car emptied out) and rode to our apartment. Then we had to find a beer -- not too hard in Bamberg.
