What a nice evening we’ve had here at the Makaza Complex, just outside Momchilgrad. Friendly people, good company by my mom and a nice skype conversations with our family home. It’s early morning and we’re ready for breakfast. Todays plan is a short day towards Krumovgrad.
We woke up in Zlatograd around 9:10. The alarm didn’t go off and we were a bit shocked since we planned to wake up earlier. Our plan today is to cycle about 90Km and are prepared for that. Sun is shining and life is good, what a morning!
We’re ready for my moms first day. She’s really excited. Our plan today is to cycle 55Km from Smolyan to Zlatograd. How will she react to the bulgarian traffic, and how will it be for her to cycle with the trailer?
Finally the day is here, I’m gonna cycle to Smolyan to meet my mother. She’s ready to cycle with me to the sea side of Bulgaria. I just have to climb a few mountains first, I’m climbing my way up to 1700 meters above sea level today.
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!
