Day18 Koblenz to Bonn --Rest day. Ride to train Station!

Couldnt ride today as both of us have legs that wont work. The groans and creaks as we get up can be heard down the street. So we decided to catch up on distance, as we have got a bit behind so got a train from Koblenz to Bonn. We had a very good look round Koblenz in the morning and saw all the sites. It is the confluence of the Rhine and the Mosel so very important place in History. Had a great cable car ride up to the castle which was Roman and a Prussian stronghold.

By mid afternoon we were in Bonn and had a wander around the central city. Beethoven memerobilia everywhere.

Tomorrow we plan to take the boat from Bonn to Cologne, although it doesnt leave until the late afternoon.

The Good and the Bad
Cycling surface.
The good- newly laid tarmac
The Bad- old cobble stones. Terrible on hands and bottom!
