MARIBOR-EBENDORF

cycling

sunny 24 °C

I wasnt on cycling trip almost for a year now, so I had to taste it again. I decided to cycle from my home town Maribor in Slovenia trough Austria and Italy back to alpine village Bovec in Slovenia.
I loaded my back to much again as usual and later I was mad at myself again draging each kg of weight trough hills. I started from my house at 9 30 and cycled 20km to border. I countinued along econdary road rough beautyfull wine gardens. Later I had to climb over tough hills which take me 2houurs, but all suffer and pain was refounded with 10km of super ownhill where I reached top speed 70,9km per hour. I am proud on this speed, especialy because bike was fully loaded. For sure this is my new record!
When I reached valley I countinued cycling in direction Ebendorf, but I was very tired and it was getting dark. I had some problems finding a room, because i was easter hlidays which are a big holiday for Austrian people, so all pensions were closed. In the end friendly turkish owner of kebab saloon Jihad offered a room in seller. I received an offer, but later we find a room after all. I camed there at dark and was exhausted.I was 8 hours on bike and cycled 135km and this was also the loniest ride with fully loaded bike so far. I was sleeping like baby in beautyful mountain valley pension.IMG_6694
