bike ride! leipzig to prague

my good buddy randall had never taken his two boyz on a long-distance bike tour. we decided it was time to get them started, so we planned a trip here in germany and the czech republic.
they rode like champs!
we averaged around seventy kilometers per day on a five-day ride. we spent the first two days getting over to the Elbe river, and then followed it upstream to prague.
our first night's hostel was in a castle atop a hill. colditz is famous as the site of a WW2 prison camp for british officers.
some of our roads were rough, some perfectly smooth. very little interaction with cars: huzzah!
