There is no doubting that Evie has so far enjoyed her experiences of cycling. She will bring her helmet to us and point to a bike.
Then Evie was given a baby trike. So we thought it was worth a try. And she loves it!
We took her us a nearby bridle way and the bumps didn’t bother her a jot!
And so begins the new adventures of Evie on her own bike.
We started our day today by going to the bike hire shop to pick up our bikes and the Chariot. It’s going to be quite a ride on these European style sit up bikes, although I quite like the upright position.
Fahrrad-Klinik has good reviews and so far so good with their service. They promise the tyres are very puncture resistant to the point of insisting you don’t need a pump or repair kit, so let’s hope this is also true!
This Chariot is quite different to the one back home, so it took quite a bit of fettling and two attempts to get the car seat in a position and stable enough that I was happy with. Good job there was a cafe next to the bike shop!
From here we went onto the Cathedral, where at 12pm daily there is a 30 min organ concert for €5. Passau cathedral has the biggest organ in Europe with a crazy number of organ pipes, over 17,000! So it makes so good noise.
Evie loved it….
….. and then fell to sleep. But this did mean I could really sit and appreciate the surroundings! As well as a very impressive organ, were equally impressive walls ceilings, and a door lock (bigger than my head!).
We trialled the bikes again around the bumpy streets of Passau
And then Evie slept whilst I did some work! Possibly not the most effective way of working ever???
Out for the evening. Possibly THE BEST CURRY EVER, that I have ever tasted, at an Indian restaurant called Marahaja. Evie even guzzled a few grains of rice and curry sauce. And grabbed great handfuls of rice. Messy mealtimes are afoot big style I think.
She also liked to pick the flowers… but they did make her even prettier!
Tomorrow the cycling begins in earnest…. next chapter of this trip….. we are all excited!
