Honeymoon- Day 22- Biking to Munster

Before going off on our second bike ride adventure we walked around Colmar a bit.
We were surprised to see these icons all over the city, until we discovered the house of Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi.

Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi was born in this Colmar house, and was the sculptor who designed the Statue of Liberty.
(Eric learned this InstaPose from some teenage girls just a few minutes prior.
It is an undeniable success...)

Instead of wine, our bike ride today revolved around cheese.
We are on our way to Munster.  
Luckily saddle soreness is temporary, our bike ride today is longer than yesterday.
It wasn't easy to find the bike path today either.  The wheat and corn was very pretty to ride through, but we were not where we needed to be.

Similar to the vineyard bike ride, once we made it to the bike path, it was easy to follow.  
This bike path is more shaded, and so more popular among cyclists. 

Not sure what this is used for, something to do with farming, we saw ten or twenty throughout the day.


Of course we had to have pizza with Munster cheese.

And the most amazing apple sundae with homemade Munster ice cream (salted caramel ice cream, cinnamon ice cream, and vanilla ice cream, to be more specific).

Water bottle refill station.

Between today and yesterday, we rode exactly 104 km (64 miles).

  1. I can't believe all the ground you covered. It's truly amazing.

    I love that you're on the CHEESE TRAIL. Oh yum.

    I loved the cows and all the scenery. What an amazing adventure you experienced.

    An enviable explore indeed. Wow.

    My the way, did you know Eiffel did the interior structure of the Statue of Liberty. What pose does that command?
