We rode 31 miles from Grein to Melk today and this was the best ride so far. The weather was beautiful and the ride seemed to go by much quicker. Had a stretch of treacherous roadway to ride on for a bit but we survived. The picturesque little town of Melk is best known for its massive Benedictine Abbey, one of the most splendid monastic house in Austria. We walked up and around and were even able to peek inside the chapel, it was quite a glorious site to see. They have a full tour but as we were just passing through we did not have time to do this. We had another great meal and conversations with both locals and other travelers. Tomorrow we are off to Krems.
