Today we cycle across small side roads parallel to the main street. There hardly isn’t any traffic, nevertheless we feel stressed by the unreasonably loud pick-up trucks.

Around noon, the weather’s becoming worse and the area slightly hillier.

The dark weather cares for a creepy mood in the forests.

Here in America we take our bikes into our room every night. In Europe we have never been allowed to do so. Given today’s motel room, I have the feeling that it’s actually not the bikes that are standing in our room but that we are sleeping next to the bikes in a garage.

Beer of the day: Pyramid Weizen. We have dinner at a truck stop at the Highway. I order a first beer and another one when ordering the food (burger with French fries). After that, the waiter tells me that this will be my last one. Policy of the house: only two drinks per guest. Strange customs here! But at least the food was good.
