I’m not really a reliable blogger I’ve realized- partly due to the fact that when i’m at home there quite literally is not enough time in the day. But when i’m traveling it is not quite as nuts. So here are some pics from Regensburg- one of the most beautiful spots for an Ironman on the planet. I’m not taking part- here in a supporting role. Definitely worth putting this one on your bucket list.
I rode 6 hours yesterday on the bike course which starts with a decent climb up to Blumberg- a small town up in the hills then descends rapidly down onto about 50km of flat terrain where you hop from small town to small town on narrow winding farm roads- it really is beautiful. It feels on occassion as if you’ve been thrown back to medieval times. The only store I could find on the route was located in a small village and only had Coke, Fanta and water so for the last 3 hours I drank half Fanta, half water- actually reasonably refreshing. The historical value here is amazing- old buildings, cobblestone streets and the Danube River snaking through on its extensive journey through Europe. Really worth the trip!
