Day 11. Hammerdal- Ange

Posted by admin On Julio - 20 - 2010

169 kilometers. 8 hours and 32 minutes.

IVAN: Today, we took up where we left off. We resumed our solidarity adventure from the inland road. Yesterday, we made sure that Paco was in the best of health: we had a look at the wheels and brakes and we checked the oil. At first glance, Paco received a clean bill of health. This stage was not that hard but overly long since we still have to make up for the 90 kilometers we had to go backwards.

While contemplating the landscape and a good many number of geographical features most of them lakes and rivers (because we don’t see many mountains!), I try to grasp why neither our Primary nor Secondary school Geography teachers included the Swedish rivers in the syllabus! Jeez! There are thousands of them, and I’m just talking, believe or not, about those that look down on our Ebro, because the little rivers that spring up from everywhere are out of discussion!

We, otherwise, resumed our daily ritual, that ritual which extremely stresses us out because we don’t have enough time. Things don’t end after cycling. Apart from the time spent on taking some breaks to rest and to eat, we need to spend time searching for accommodation, checking-in, taking a shower, stretching, unpacking, having dinner, preparing the route plan for the following day, writing the post, and sleeping as much as possible. Hey, we don’t have much time to spare; and if the cycling day become complicated, we’re in trouble. Well, it’s all in a day’s work for a cyclist. And if you like the scratching then you do not mind the lice! There’s nothing we can do but grin and bear it because the following day, after packing our stuff up and having breakfast, the routine starts all over again.
