mid February is early to start the biking season but the weather in the Black Forest was just too good to ignore. 250km cruising in perfect conditions with very limited traffic made my day.
DWD is the governmental weather institute in Germany and they have provided an excellent, accurate, state of the art weather forecast in a very timely manner and modern fashion over this crazy weather situation we have faced the last couple of weeks – simply brilliant.
From early warnings to entertaining updates fed in by the public crowd they informed in a very professional way.
With temperatures of – 13℃ and a breakdown in my diesel heating system a few days before the extreme minus temperatures it was exciting and shows how fragile you are against nature.
