This morning, as we sat with our bikes in front of the cathedral, a large (North American) tour group passed us, and their guide explained:
“Here you can see some bicycle tourists. They are biking along the Danube river from Ulm to Vienna. This is a very popular route – the same one that you will be following on your river boat cruise. Everything they need is packed into those colourful bags on their bikes. They will bike about 80-100 km each day and they are carrying camping equipment.”
Some of the group then took our picture and a man joked if he could “give us a lift.” The group laughed and continued their tour.
