Riding to Germany

IT'S A SILLY thing to get excited about, but it's the first time I've done it. This morning Les and I cycled to Germany. Really, it wasn't that big a deal -- only about 20km away from our house -- but there was something kind of fun about riding over the Rhine into a new country. We thought about making a big loop and riding home on the German side of the border, but there are so few bridges over the river that we would have had to cross back into France south of Strasbourg. Since we were quite a bit north of Strasbourg at the time, we just went home.
