Day 6 cycling, from great hotel to Sigiriya Rock fortress. Mainly mud roads. Hard walk in am. Grand.
30.3 Km, 94m.
Great day on fairly flat road. Lots of ancient ruins and the best lunch so far. 63.6km, 210m.
Hard day, strong headwind, flat and bloody hot. No shade, feel over cooked. Km 64.2, 175m.
Flat day! But 15mph headwind was draining. 100.4k though. 167m climb, wow. Drying fish was memorable, for the smell.
A day when my Garmin failed! Around Trinco, 40km and 200m climb.
From Tissa to Yala National Park. Safari was a bit disappointing. Too busy, but they are getting it mainly right.
Around Tangalle. 42.4km, 297 m up.Our first ‘unguided’ day. Yea!
Got a bit lost trying to keep of the dreaded A2. Decided its better to risk life with a bus than be eaten by vultures.
Nice lunch, but pricey and touristy. Mirissa harbour amazing. See other pages.
40.5km, 155m climb. Flat day, with the threat for rain, but nothing came. Usual dice with death with the buses.
Gentle flat ride, rain ++ as soon as we found an Hotel. Smart, too expensive, but we are dry.
Again, hot and flat. Through the craziness that is Colombo, and a relief for that. Now raining again.
