Day 6: Davos, Switzerland to St. Margen, Germany
Today we'd be leaving the Alps... this would be as far East as we would go - heading North West towards Germany.
Getting ready to leave Davos.
A group of riders heading in our direction towards Liechtenstein.
The vineyard alongside the road with the last of the Alps in the distance.
After passing through Liechtenstein and Austria, we'd arrive at Lake Constance Germany. The road along the lake is more of a highway than anything. Desperate to find a place for lunch, we take a random exit off the highway and end up at a dead end...
...which turns out to be a nice find.
Megan getting her shopping fix at the market.
Enjoying a fine German Pilsner while waiting for the schnitzel to arrive.
A slower pace than we were used to.
Entering Germany's black forest on our way to St. Margen for the night, we stumble upon Hegaublick - a cafe for riders.
Arriving at our stay for the night in the St. Margen countryside (just outside Freiburg).
We meet the three riders (above) who were also traveling from the UK, and had spent the last 3 days exploring the black forest. Tom on the GS had planned the trip. We'd share notes and GPS routes over dinner. Having no idea what roads to hit, his advice couldn't have come at a better time.
After spending a good portion of the night reviewing the German riding maps he'd loaned me, tomorrow's route was set - we'd head up through Wolfach and Baden Baden, across the tip of France and back into Germany for the night.
