After eastern breakfast I started pedaling at 9 in the morning. After nice 20 km of flat terrain, I had to climb again for at least 45 minutes in direction Ferlach. I decided to try to come to Bovec in same day, so I was mostly cycling. It went well and arround 17 30 I was on Italian border. From here I had to climb over pass Predil, which took my almost all energy left. Weather has changed and it was slightly raining. I changed my clothes and lenses in the sunglases, it was getting dark. Now I only had to ride downhill another 14km and I was almost in Bovec. When I arrived it was 19 30 and already dark. I was lucky that I made it on time, but to achive that I had to cycle for 11 hours....
I overnighted in friends apartment. I was planing to cycle another 3 days and try to come back to Maribor trough Slovenia, but the weather forecast was bad and also I had to rest for at least 1 day...I decided to return with my friends in late afternoon in their car.
Very pleasent journey, but I was overdoing it. Such relation would be better to cycle in 3 days than 2, but it was great anyway! I would suggest this route to cyclist, because it is not many traffic...Only thing that bothered me a little were huge amounts of motorcycles speeding on 1 part of the road.
