The beautiful Rhine Valley

We have spent the last two days cycling through the Rhine Valley. It's amazing just how dramatic the changes can be over a few kilometres. We have cycled through Bonn which is a bit like Manchester, but with sunshine! We then went through the more dramatic gorges near Boppard and St Goar and we passed the 'World Famous Loreley' which was basically a rock but with added Japanese tourists. I'm sure some of the Japanese tourists took pictures of two knackered British cyclists as we tried cycling through the hordes. We then moved into the wine regions around Nierstein. All the vineyards were having open days today and there was a lot of red-faced and very 'happy' people about. I have to say the bike was nearly thrown in the river so I could join them wine-tasting.
We have finished in a city called Worms (!). We have now covered just over 750km. Tina has pulled a tendon in her leg and is in absolute agony but is taking whatever medicines she can find and carrying on....a strong Northern Lass!
