Not much to report otherwise. There was a crescendo of bicycle bells right after Osnabrueck that has not stopped since. And with cyclists come wide and tidy cycle lanes for me to walk on which, judging from the looks I´m getting, annoys some of the cyclists very much. I do apologise.
Also, being recognised yesterday in the middle of nowhere by the only two people I know in a 50km radius (my superb hosts on a cycling trip whom I had just met the night before) made me chuckle for several miles afterwards.
