on the sign-marked bicycle route
south from our start in the village of Sieglar near Köln
(Cologne) -- on our way to the city of Bonn
on the bike route, elevated above the surrounding fields
for nice views -- at a transition from
asphalt to packed dirt.
(we could have avoided this dirt by taking lower alternate path)
another cyclist ahead of us riding
over the river Rhein on the sidewalk of the A565 autobahn bridge
looking north down the river Rhein
from the bridge -- container shipping facility on left side
We've made it riding to Bonn, former
capital of Germany. Ahead is the University.
the "Markt" -- main plaza of the city of Bonn
After leaving Bonn, we
crossed over the Rhein on another bridge, and got on the bicycle
path along the east side of the river -- here coming into the village of Niederkassel.
After this we turned away from the river Rhein and rode back to
Sieglar on quiet
roads thru farm land.
