The simple fact that the wind was gone made the entire ride really enjoyable, I was able to cruise at 30
km/h again which was my original planned speed.
The route today was filled with hills from beginning to end, some small and some big. I have absolutely
no problem with hills at all, because with every up ther must come a down. And boy were there some
downhills today. The best one of the day got me up to a speed of 70 km/h - what a feeling!
The roads were very quiet on the second half of todays stage, and the scenery as usual was splendid.
I reached Domazlice just before 13:00 so the day was a huge success. Theres more hills coming
tomorrow, and I cant wait.
Day 9 - A day full of ups and downs
Posted on July 16, 2013
It is hard to explain the feeling I had this morning, when I realised the wind that had been punishing
me for the last 5 days had finally disappeared. It makes such a huge difference in effort, like constantly
cycling uphill. Normally I dont mind some wind, but when it is 20 km/h its definitely not fun anymore.
I started the ride an hour later than usual this morning, at 7am. This was because I was exhausted
after yesterdays 190 km, and I didnt make it to bed until 21:00.
To sum up the ride to Domazlice today in just one word: WOW! It was exciting from beginning to end.
And that is because of two reasons: lack of wind, and lots of hills.
