|More||Five weeks I was tramping through Europe on bicycle. From Czech to state border Austria/Italy we were one group of 7 bikers. After that we were split into two groups. These groups we mixed sometimes - in dependence on requests for course of route.
In Monaco we visited Oceanographic museum and I visited car museum of Prince of Monaco. GP circuit in Monaco I have passed in 6x slower time than formula. In normal traffic, with bags, of course. And "one way" street obstructed my ride.
Last big splitting we did in Switzerland, then I went alone to home through Germany. In Munich I spent all day in "Deutches Museum" (technical museum).
Two fellows went to home on bikes, via Austria. Four fellows went by train through Germany.
I went on bike Author Reflex SX (product of Czech company, designed in Czech, but produced in Taiwan), with rear and front bags. Much of my equipment was made in Czech republic. Weight of bicycle with bags was little more than 40 kg.
