Day 72

Stormy break

The wind is just so incredibly strong. I think, it is the first time in my life that I had to get off the bike because it was simply impossible to continue cycling. After 140 km we were forced to stop today, because the wind conditions do not allow us to get ahead. In this region it seems to be windy throughout the year, because the bushes are bent and everywhere you can see wind turbines. We still have a few hundred kilometers to go until we turn inland. I can only hope it gets better there. Actually, I have expected these wind forces first in the far south. But already here it is impossible to cycle any further sometimes … I just do not know what to say at the moment. We will now try to sleep a few hours and start at 3 o’clock at night.

But there are also very good news! Although I still miss over 3,000 km, we have already reached the 23,000 Euros at Racing4Charity . You are just great! Many, many, many thanks for every Euro! Of course I would be very happy if you continue to donate. Together, we can make a big contribution to the ALS and ME/CFS research. I would be very grateful if you also vote at “Sportler mit Herz” for me. You can vote daily. With winning that prize, we could reach another 5,000 Euros for our charity project. Thank you so much!
