Riding a Brompton on the Mittelland Route (D4 Fernradweg): Day 13

Day 13: Meerane to Augustusburg, 66 km (850 km so far)

Serious mountain climbing today, the most significant so far. Add dirt tracks and the almost complete absence of bicycle signs and the day was a challenge. To be sure, there were signs for horses and walkers, but the only bicycle sign had been thrown down in frustration by some previous cyclist. The last 2 km up to Augustusburg went up and up and up. Perhaps it was the adrenalin, or the prospect of a beer at the end of it, but I rode the whole climb. Hotel Morgensonne and its lively septuagenarian owner were simply unique.
