Mountains, mountains and you know what??? A bit more mountains towards Dospat

Will I be able to cycle from Petrich to Dospat in one day? 120Km and close to 3000 meters of climb according to the side «Ride with GPS». I’m hoping for good weather and that my motivation will last all day. Let’s go!

Goodbye Macedonia! I’m back in Bulgaria and are preparing for two extreme days!

Waking up in the hotel in Macedonia is not bad. I’ve slept well and are ready for a good breakfast. There will be some climbing today as well, but nothing close to what I’ve done the last days. I’m getting ready for Bulgaria and Petrich.

Climbing my way into Macedonia, 130Km and 2300 hight meters

Am i ready for a new day in the mountains? How will my body react after these long days with climbs? Will the weather be as bad as they report? These questions are running through my head, I know at the same time that these mountains are small compared to what I will pass on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Climbing the mountains along the boarder towards Kyustendil

I’ve slept well in Dragoman. But when you wake up, walks down to the restaurant and are told that you’re two minutes late for breakfast….THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I’m heading out to the small center to see what I can find. Todays goal is Kyustendil, which is over some mountains and about 120Km from Dragoman when you follow the boarder.

Back to reality, cycling from Kladovo to Negotin!

I’m wondering how it will be to start cycling again now? It’s dangerous to give your body an idea of how it is to relax, the idea of a normal life! I’ll see how far I can get today, my body might be tired after such a long travel from Norway as well.

Oppsummering av Lillians tre ukers lange drømmeferie!

Det er nå, når jeg sitter her og tenker tilbake på turen, at det begynner å gå opp for meg hva jeg egentlig har vært med på. Ja, jeg vet at det jeg har gjort ikke er noe alle gjør, men det føles allikevel så urealistisk ut. Er det virkelig jeg som har syklet 90 mil? Sikker på at det ...

Cycling through rivers in the road and water pounds half way up to my knees on the way to «The Iron Gate» and Kladovo

I woke up in Donji Milanovac, knowing that it will be a long day with extreme amounts of rain. I’m using the morning to listen to good music and to have a good breakfast while I’m building up my adrenalin. I’m ready, I’m basically just laughing because of the amounts of rain.
