DAY 17 – After five days riding we knew we were going to have a day off in Mainz, but we couldn’t stay in the hostel as we were in separate rooms and they were fully booked for that evening. So we again packed all our stuff up and loaded it onto the bikes, and went in search of a hotel for the evening.
Our luck was in and we found a room as soon as we got to the city centre, so we set about the next task of the day, Yami’s favourite, laundry. While she waited for the clothes to wash, I went in search of a map for the upcoming Main River section to Werthiem, from where we would begin to follow another river, the Tauber.
I found the guide fairly quickly as Yami finished washing, so we had the rest of the day to look around Mainz and enjoy our day off. I also needed to buy another lock for the bikes as I wasn’t too confident in the one small lock that we had.
The time passed quickly, and before we knew it, dinner came and went and it was tie for bed to get some rest before the next few days cycling began along the Main River.
