After my 150Km ride from Imatra to Hamina, I’ve had some amazing days together with Lillian. Today Russia is waiting for me, that’s of course if they let me in. Ready or not, here I come!
I could really feel that my energy was low after yesterday’s monster stage. I woke up and just didn’t want to get out of bed. Around 12:15, I managed to get out of the room and over to the supermarket for some breakfast. This is gonna be a hard day.
I’m ready for a good ride after a night in the tent at the camp site in Lieksa. I’ve planned to reach Ilomantsi today, which is about 130Km.. or at least I thought so!?
After a good day on the road yesterday, I woke up with a smile on my face, ready for a new day towards Lieksa, 110Km from Kuhmo. The legs feel a bit tired after yesterdays monster stage, but give it a few Km and I’m all good. Lieksa, here I come!
I have to be honest and say that there’s not much to do here in the woods. I’ve been thinking all day, what can I do, what can I post today which will not make you bored. Let’s make a small video to you guys.
I spent the evening in the tent, listening to music and finding out about which direction to take after Sodankyla. Finland is going to be more insteresting the next days. I’m getting close to the Russian boarder again and the road quality can fall dramatically.
Day 4 I don’t have words for how it feels to wake up in the morning and the first thing you see when you open your eyes is blue sky. This is gonna be an amazing day on the road.
Day 3: It’s important with some restitution on a trip like this. I had an extreme day yesterday, so i felt I deserved a shorter day today. I met a cyclist on a long trip from France today.
Day 2 of my adventure is started. After about 10Km I’m passing the boarder to Finland today. I’m aware of the long distance between places where you can buy food, so I have planned ahead for this. It’s been a long day with some boring roads and a BIG surprise.
