The ride to Regensburg was an initial steep climb out of the Beilngries area to the continental divide area of the two drainages, the Altmuhl into the Danube, versus the Aisch ultimately into the Rhine. Oh, divide. That sounds flat. Nope. Rollers up and down all day. With sweeping views. And a shifting headwind.
We met another cycle tourist at our afternoon tea break and rode the rest of the way into Regensburg with him. Hi Tobias, so great to meet you!
Since we’ve been bumbling a bit on this trip, no firm itinerary, we don’t read up a lot on our destinations. In this case that resulted in a lovely surprise- Regensburg is amazing! And we arrived on a lovely warm afternoon, the first day of school for most kids, and a population determined to enjoy the lovely summer weather. Fall is in the air, I know because I got smacked in the face with a fall leaf on a decent yesterday, so there is a felling of enjoy this weather while you can! We’re here for two nights so we get time to really embrace the city.
Next stop is a 3 night cat sitting gig through TrustedHousesitters. We’re very excited to get to spend some down time taking care of a kitty. Happy pedaling!

Greetings from HNTB, Rich! It’s so much fun to follow along with your journey! I set an alert so I see every new post. Sitting in an office in Oakland, it’s nice to have a window into the big beautiful world and a couple of explorers right in the middle of it.
Hi Jake! Glad to know you are enjoying and that all is well. Cheryl has been doing most of the great blogging, as I have been very (happily) busy planning our next day or two ahead of this adventure! Trains, lodging, and most importantly, a good bike route. My best to all at HNTB!
I love these posts!
