Day 7: Leeuwarden to Leer

Julien had a bit of a crappy day today but still managed to cover a mammoth 92 miles!

Julien again got very lost, this time on a long 30 mile road on the way to Groningen. To get back on track he then tried to cycle along the highway but there were no road markings which made it very difficult to find the way to Germany!

Eventually Julien made it out of Holland arriving in Bunde but he only realised he had entered Germany when he suddenly noticed a significant increase in the number of German cars and number plates!

So far the cycle paths in Germany haven’t matched the Dutch standard and Julien spent alot of time cycling through a back country route.

Along the way he saw a German couple walking along with two massive horses one of which he somehow offended and it became rather enraged!

After Julien dismounted from his bike the horse became less angry and after a while he got back on the bike and continued on to Leez where he is camping for the night.

Let’s hope for better roads and fewer wild horses tomorrow! Here is today’s Google Map and please also visit the Child’s i Foundation and Julien’s Just Giving page. Thank you.
