Rust, Germany to Strasbourg, France: Cycling Day 6

Such a lazy day for us today! Only have to ride 25 miles 😆 Our apartment check out wasn’t until 10am so we had a slow morning, reading books, playing games, and puzzles. We grabbed some bakery goodies and stopped at a local playground to kill another hour in the glorious sunshine.

R did her own hair today. Can you tell?! 😳

We headed out of Rust about 11 and soon after had trail issues. The signs weren’t great and we ended up crossing this rickety bridge to ride on this super rocky trail.

No photo evidence of the trail. We needed two hands to steer the bikes and not lose control. We did some more riding on the road after we crossed into France. Not our favorite but it shaved some time off the ride.

See not everything is beautiful fields and villages. 😉

But after a bit we did get back on track. Also back to a beautiful trail!

These trees along the canal were incredible!

We started getting nearer to Strasbourg.

Bikers everywhere in this city!

We got to our apartment. Dropped our stuff off and went to walk around the neighborhood. We found an amazing church, a playground, and a grocery store. Like always!

There was a wedding just getting started at the church and they were ringing the bells. It was beautiful.

Found this at the grocery store and it made me chuckle.

We had tried to get an early dinner out but everything was closed! It was 4:30/5 and nothing was open or they were just starting to open. It’s a very European issue.

We ended up back at the apartment and then went out for dinner after 6. The best option we found was an Irish pub.

Sitting outside to help cut the cigarette smoke. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I also made the kids promise to eat at least one vegetable tomorrow.

Tomorrow we get to fully explore Strasbourg!
