I always expect August to be the height of the summer. This year it certainly wasn't. There was a lot of rain all over the country with catastrophic flooding. We were fortunate not to be affected seriously, but we, too, had a lot of wet days. The rain and a couple of sick days kept me off my bike for about half of the month. But we did manage to go on tour one more time which made up for a lot. You can read about our tour from Wertheim to Kassel here.
