Last night some of the riders made the short walk into the town of Straubing from our campsite to join in the festivities surrounding Volksfest. This is the second largest festival in Germany after Oktoberfest in Munich. Thousands of people filled the town wearing the very striking traditional Bavarian dress, and the beer was flowing. No small samplings either – beer was only served in 1 liters steins.
Tomorrow we leave Germany and enter country number three – Austria, where another of our sectional riders will join us.
