Road Cycling, multi stages, in the valleys, from Brussels to Budapest, July 2021

Etalle - Merzalben

I'm up early in the morning (about 6:00 am), I drink a good orange juice and eat bread with jam prepared by the Cécile 's Mother. There's nothing better like that to face the long day which waits for me. Having crossed the Luxembourg and having crossed the border at Remich, I borrow the road which follow the Saar's river since Mettlach. This road is very nice and it is with ease that I arrive to Saarbrucke. Over there, I receive a help of a local cycler who guide me through the city to put me on the good way. Then I pass by Zweibrucken where is the manufacturer of tractors John Deere and of cranes Demag. I arrive at Merzalben at about 7:30 pm after +/-230 km. Throughout the day there were many vineyards and roads were pleasant to do, practically no rises.
