I just had a conversation with Shanny the Tour leader who has had some busy days since he last sent an update. In Vienna we had seven new riders joining and so there was a lot of logistics to deal with to make sure they new riders have a smooth start.
The next rest day which was yesterday in Bratislava, Slovakia was busy with maintenance and repairs of the trucks, getting a trailer, propane etc. Bratislava is the official half point of the tour.
Today ride went smoothly and the bikers arrived in Gyor, Hungary. Hungary is the 5th country of the tour and the tour now turns due south. Hopefully the change of direction will bring less rain as it seems that the cyclists have seen enough rain for the tour.
