... once and after the first couple of hours stopped getting off the bike and walk through the really rocky bits. My poor rear end would have appreciated Trystan’s advice about ‘locking a leg and keeping your bum off the seat on the bouncy bits’ a few hours earlier (I am not exaggerating when I say my sitting bones were bruised for DAYS afterwards.)

The locals say, "it doesn't go to the head but to the knees". The alcohol content is around 8%. Need I say more. Since are quest for laundry facilities proved fruitless we enjoyed a lazy late afternoon. Tomorrow we head to Utne also on the ...
