We were finally able to track down a shop that had a replacement rack for Elizabeth's bike. As we continued north, we saw signs for wild roosters, which are apparently so dangerous that they need to be fenced in. We saw a ton of wild birds, but sadly, no roosters.
The Plan: Two months of unassisted cycling and camping through Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and wherever else our legs may take us.
The Route: Starting in Brussels and flying out of Berlin are the only given at this point. We plan to cycle parts of the Flanders Cycle Route, Rhine River and the Danube River. We will also be using the EuroVelo and regional cycling routes.
Accommodation: WarmShowers website (like couchsurfing for cyclists). We are also planning on staying at campsites, backyards of friendly locals or in the wilderness.
