The heatwave conditions didn’t last.
Last nights camp was in a caravan park about a mile from a massive motorway bridge. Sleepless night due to traffic. Didn’t get robbed by drunken Russian gangsters.
Followed the Ruhr all day, and got stopped 3 times by people doing surveys on the radweg. Warned about storms, and took shelter in a bus stop in Schwerte. Boldly pushed on and got caught in the mother of storms 10 miles further on.
Most of my kit was fine, legs and feet wet, but they dried quickly. Oh, my ipod took a dislike to the humidity and doesn’t want to play. Found it impossible to get a camp so stayed in Ratskeller hotel in very hilly Arnsberg.
90 miles today.
Total miles 179
