With the generous help of Stephan (who lives in the apartment a couple floors below) and his tool kit, I was able to put my bicycle back together again after unpacking it from our small overseas shipment. It feels fantastic to ride through the village and to see the change in scenery that a bicycle affords.
I am already calculating how far it will be to ride to Freiburg and what sort of route I would like to take. Lucia and I have been out for a road test together to which we made a casual trip over to the next village in only a few short minutes. More to explore for sure!
