Nurburgring-Bad Kissingen

245 Miles
7 Hours 50 mins

The night before, we decided to make an early start over dinner. So it was a 6.30am and start to get up and moving. We met for breakfast at 7am and all feeling good! Overnight the clouds came in and there were signs of rain, still this was the third day of the expedition and we gathered our things and hit the road. At that moment the heavens opened and down came the rain. So for the next hour or so we were making our way through the beautiful mountain roads in the rain, not too bad for the Landy although being a Landy we did have the odd leak! But we were looking at a very wet biker in the mirrors but over the radio there was a very cheery voice from Simon saying all was well and he was dry under his liners (not bin liners for those who don’t ride bikes!)

Anyway throughout the day we were greeted by some spectacular German scenery from the flowing Rhine river to the mountain roads. It was about lunchtime that both Simon and I needed to find a tree and stretch our legs so we turned off down a small lane and stopped on a small farm track. We did what we had to, and stretched our legs for 10 minutes, and had a snack and admired the view from the hillside we were on. It was a pleasant drive for the rest of the afternoon and the sun decided to show it’s face and we arrived in Bad Kissingen mid-afternoon., just in time as in came a thunderstorm not long after we checked in. We waited until it cleared and went for a much awaited walk and dinner in town – it had to be Schnitzels for all!
