Sonderborg to Ribe
Our prettiest day yet. Bright blue skies with big puffy clouds. Warm enough to shed the arm warmers for the first time. 57 miles of mostly flat roads with bike lanes in the populated areas.
A. Map of part of today’s route instead of a historical marker.
A sample of the clouds we enjoyed at our lunch break.
Are these clouds better than historical markers or what?
Enjoying a well deserved rest with Friday.
A view of the Ribe skyline/church steeples from miles outside Ribe.
Guess what Brian is doing in the Ribe town square?
The view from the top of one of those churches we saw from miles away. That is the North Sea in the distance.
A pic of the riders from the top of the church tower. 260 steps up and 260 or 1 steps down.
Ribe town square. Larger open spaces than in the others we have seen.
This is our hotel for tonight. It was built in 1535. For over 100 years it served as the town jail. It’s right on the town square.
View from inside our hotel. They never took the bars down.
Brian’s room tonight. Chris and I are hoping that solid wooden door blocks out his snoring. We should have found a place like this earlier in the trip.
