Nice Belgian cyclist and his wife fixed my broken pannier he had a little bolt which is too long but works.
Easy cycling thru vineyards and very old villages
Train into Strasbourg for last bit of ride and get to bike shop for various things including trying to get my pannier fixed with proper replacement bolt. Had no luck. Bike shop busy and guy too stressed even to find right bolt for my pannier. Leanne gave up on her problem and so did I.
