starting today`s last stage from Blanes to Barcelona we were as exited as we have been when we started the Tour back in Bonn… It is something really special to come close to a goal which you have approached for almost four weeks.
The leg did use the N-II from beginning to end following the sea. As we shared the road with cars we were a little nervous if it would be a nice final stage or not. But we actually found out that there were more cyclists on the road than cars. Many of them greeted and cheered when seeing us – Olli and I just could not stop smiling! One of the cyclist on a racing bike joined us for some 10 kilometers and chatted with us. It was an honour for him, he said, to have shared a few kilometers of route with people who had done this kind of journey. One day he would love to do the same.
I remember that we have once said the same when our friend Lars told us about his Bonn-Barcelona bicycletour… (thank you so much Lars! We will both never forget that!) It is simply wonderful to be able to make a dream come true!
Adeu from Barcelona my dear friends and thanks for all your support
Claudia & Olli
