Much of the rest of the day passed in a bit of a blur. We hit some more major roads but even after crossing back into France, still found ourselves from time-to-time back in the woods and hills again.
We stopped for coffee at the French border
Avoiding the major autoroute, we traversed some really nice roads in the Alsace region. Rolling hills covered in vineyards giving way to more forests but much wider, faster roads than in the Black Forest
As we passed over Col De Bonhomme, it was not possible to ride past a restaurant with lots of bikes parked outside, so we paused yet again for a coffee and some excellent pastries.
As the sun started to get low in the sky, we took to the major routes to get some miles (kilometers) under our wheels and not leave too much riding for the last day, prior to meeting the ferry.
The route was still interesting however. Nothing like this on US interstates or British motorways.
