06/06 bridge to Hamburg
06/07 Hamburg - 600km - This is my first rest-day
06/08 Just as I was about to leave Hamburg, I recognized that a bolt of my Brooks saddle was broken. Still in Hamburg, I headed to Globetrotter, waited until 10am (start of business) and bought a new one.
What a difference: brand new against a good worn saddle (>10.000km). I sent the old saddle home, as it is just a bolt. I will use this one on my other bicycle.
people say that it needed a good 1.000km to get the seat soft and cozy. Fortunately, after 50km riding, I felt ok.
