We carry on the tradition of meeting at Shell Karlslunde at the unearthly hour of 5 o'clock in the morning where we gather in anticipation with coffee until everyone arrives. Our holiday officially starts as we leave for the ferry at 05:30. By 07:00 we arrive at Rødby to catch the 07:15 ferry to Germany.
Once in Germany a short burst on the motorway and we pull in at the first German filling station. Just down the road we take the exit and we'll see motorways again, but that'll be in 15 days. Until then its all the B-roads we can find.
Our goal for today is to get past the flatlands of northern Germany. If you draw a straight line from Hannover to Leipzig, anywhere south of that line the terrain turns mountainous and the roads adjust accordingly.
After a long day with an early start we stop SE of Hannover at Lautenthal which is on the tip of the most predominant mountains of this area and tomorrow we take on the popular biking playground Harzen.
