We had a good tailwind (which made for a rough flight) so we actually made it in a little early. Which was good, since the easiest train connection would have been tough to make if the flight (or baggage) was late. We found Tom and made our train with plenty of time to spare.
We put our bike suitcases in the bicycle car. I'm sure we got some negative thoughts headed our way as the bike car (later) filled up, but hey, it's for bicycles and they don't specify the form.
|Three Bike Fridays in their shells|
The first order of business was to assemble the bikes, to make sure there wasn't anything damaged in transit. I takes about an hour for me to get everything together. The bike itself is about half that -- putting on the racks and other accessories takes awhile. Soon the bikes were ready...

It is Pfefferlinge (chanterelle mushrooms) season so we all ended up having a Schnitzel with Pfefferlinge cream sauce with Spätzle. It was delicious.
Wednesday we are going to take a short ride out to Merkendorf -- which is a bit of risk as I know one of the two breweries is closed for holidays. But there are 4 other breweries on our route and I'm sure at least a couple of them will be open (I'm an optimist)
