The first real mountain steppe through the Eifel. To the start it goes along the Saar and I am not alone for long. After a few kilometres Ralf is waiting for me and accompanies me all day long until Aachen. From Trier it gets wavy along the Luxembourg border through beautiful nature. A hardly populated area and we actually don’t pass a supermarket for 140 kilometres. The climbs are not long but continuous and with wide views to Luxembourg and later Belgium. Today the conditions are ideal with little wind and great weather. For the last kilometers the boys from Ryzon, a photographer and two other companions join us and we roll together through the national park. Shortly before Aachen there is a small stop in the beer garden and today we also have a place to stay overnight. 250 kilometres with 3300 metres of altitude difference, the last ones for the next few days, because from now on motorway bridges are the mountain classifications.
