Apologies in advance for the number. I have tried to cut it down as much as possible but I wanted a mix of the bikes, roads and the places we visited, so hopefully there's enough to keep you interested.

Metz at night and in the morning. The storm clouds rolled in as we were looking for somewhere to eat.

How did we manage to not actually get wet in Metz? Must have stopped raining when we came out.

To prove Colmar was once part of Germany and is now in France, I had a massive plate of mixed pork and sauerkraut followed by the largest creme brulee.
