The Aller River was crossed and Alan was reminded of all the times he had been on its banks for a River crossing exercise and also that as the Services Liaison Officer in Verden, he lived beside it!
At one stage Alan’s Navi said we had to go straight, but there was no cycle path on the busy main road. Sensibly Chris suggested following a cycle path to the east, which we did and then he discovered the sign that led us again on safe cycle paths away from the traffic!
We stopped for a short rest at this barbecue place and we then insisted on having our photos taken in the seating area!
Did someone know we were passing this way?
Then we found ourselves cycling along a nice tarmac road through the forest. Here the humans were able to cycle side by side. Alan then noticed that Chris’s bike computer was showing a different speed to us, though we were keeping abreast? The two humans discussed this anomaly and then did a couple of measured kilometres. Alan’s bike was 0.20 Kms shorter than Chris’s! Our BBF will have to get it checked when we get back.
A tent had been erected for our accommodation and cold isotonic drinks were served. Then showers were in order and Dave kindly offered to do our human’s washing which was hung out in the hot sun to dry.
More members arrived and then Dave presented our humans with a very special pin.
