Immediately after leaving the hotel I started going up Germany's only hill. It was steep and forested and I had to walk some of it because my legs were too tired.
After that it was decent quiet country roads all the way.
Temperature peaked (according to my gps thing) at 33.5C. I've got a feeling it was closer the 30 but who knows.
Managed to ride 59.1 miles and I'm now in another decent town called Bad Bentheim.
I'm about 6 miles from Holland.
2 more days of this before I can chill for a day in Amsterdam.
