Biking to Köln

We had beautiful fall weather on Saturday, the first of November.  We had blue skies and sun!  I normally expect that starting in the fall that the weather turns gray, rainy & cold.  We have been lucky enough to have an easy start to our fall and it has been pretty mild & not too rainy.  We still have to water our plants occasionally (yes, they are still holding on).  We decided that in order to enjoy the nice weather and see the fall foliage, we should get on our road bikes.  We biked from Düsseldorf to Köln, which is about 45 kilometers one way.  It took us about 2 1/2 hours to bike the distance.

Once we got to Köln, we stopped by the Dom.

Then we walked through the crowds down to the Rhein.

After eating a granola bar for our snack, we headed to the train station to take the train back to Düsseldorf.  This ride was only 30 minutes!

From the Düsseldorf train station, we biked home & enjoyed an early dinner!
