As the day grew older it got hotter and hotter!
As we passed through Schwerte we came across the Ruhrtal Radweg which we hope to follow tomorrow and the day after!
We also crossed the Ruhr river. Then it was uphill again to get out of the valley.
Jane Hatton was our host. She had been the Chairwoman of the Sauerland Branch for some 17 years and had also been the District Vice Chairwoman for 11 years!
She greeted us with a bottle of cold mineral water and later served us tea appropriately in Poppy mugs!
This time we avoided the traffic in Iserlohn and cycled alongside the Sellersee!
We chose one indicating our superiority over the humans, while Chris knew his place!
Strangely the route now was mainly downhill and Chris recorded a full two kilometres without pedalling!
We followed a brook and saw a field full of poppies!
As we now entered Schwerte we cane to a cross roads that had an Hotel on one corner. The two humans went to enquire if they had room for us and they were offered single rooms ata reasonable price!
It is an heirloom and has the head of a centurion engraved in the stone, though when you look at it upside down it looks like a sailor/fisherman!
The one waitress found it, a little worse for wear, but in tackt! Alan gave her a hug and later a suitable finders loan!
