|"Paddle faster" - this was what we did not hear all day long during our cycling trip. It was my birthday and we were supposed to meet at Partnachplatz in the morning with our bikes. Dark clouds, heavy with rain, hung in the sky, deterring some members from joining the tour. Only seven of us appeared and it took us less than 90 minutes to reach Forsthaus Karsten, located inside Forstenrieder Park. Bikers and bikes were in perfect shape when we arrived there. Much to my surprise Shirlyn and Soofun presented a strawberry birthday cake to me. What a lucky man I was! Check our website photo gallery to see how everyone was enjoying the spareribs, beer, coffee and cake.
It was an easy-going Sunday afternoon even though we had to bike and seek shelter on our way home due to rainshowers. Malaysians and Bavarians seemed to be waterproof - cups of hot tea at Peterís home rounded up the day. You will certainly agree to my suggestion to do more trips like this in 2005 again.
