Day 17 - Set off from Dusseldorf by walking through and observing the lake in the centre of town (konigsallee ) and Schlossturm on the riverside. Found our route out to kaisersworth where Ben found a bike shop to do a small repair to his pedal crank. Late breakfast followed by diversions
causing delays through Duisberg especially through this heavy industrial city (50% of German steel output comes from here). We did find a little bit of Britain on the way in (see photo !!!!! ). Two hours later back on route into countryside with a a late lunch stop at Orsoy. 3.pm we set to our final destination Xanten. 55 dry miles but still dull and cool .
