    Manfred, thanks for the nice pictures. Fantastic experience. This was my first brevet and also my first 200 km trip. As you can see above I succeed on a 20 inch single speed folding bike.

    Kind regards
    Reimund

      Hi, Reimund, thanks for your comment. 
      Several times I saw you on the route. I was surprised, that you bicycled a folding bike with small wheels. By the single-speed your first brevet was surely a hard work. Congratulation on the successful finish! 
      Hope to see you again on a long distance!

    I am astonished! Gulyash- this is a second dish at dinner.  It is necessary to supply  a garnish. In color - like  харчо (if there is rice) - acute beef soup with rice and tkemali .

      Yes, dear Marbess!  :-) 
      The goulash soup was prepared by Moni, the wife of brevet-organizer Michael. She cooked goulash soup for 170 cyclists! However, for the cooking she had no big field kitchen, no goulash cannon, не большая полевая кухня! ...but only small pots! 
      There are many kinds of goulash soups. I suppose that Moni prepared this goulash soup in a Hungarian kind: braised beef, paprika, tomatoes, onions and potatoes. 
      I was surprised, that by the use of small pots, Moni was able to supply tasty goulash soup for 170 hungry cyclists.
      A praise and thank-you to Moni!  :-)
