Weather

A warm day with cloudy, characterless weather. A few sunny spells and no wind of any significance.

Accommodation

City-Pension-Storch
Im Stavenhof 22

Properties

The bike roads in Cologne are very busy. Bike parking in the city centre seems a bit unsafe. The shared path along the Rhine is full of pedestrians. Magnificent bike spiral from the river up to the cathedral.

Remarks

The second rest day of five between the two first stretches of stages.
