A very long downhill rideJuly 16 in Romania ⋅ 🌧 18 °C
15km of consistent climbing followed by a 50km downhill - that's how we like it! In general, it was pretty cold today. We are really surprised by our European summer. However, for cycling, it's actually not too bad as we don't sweat as much as in Central America 😉
Overall, the day was uneventful. After the downhill, we climbed another smaller pass followed by another downhill. As roads were smooth, we arrived early in the village where we wanted to stay the night. We looked for some backyard camping again. But as we couldn't find any, we stayed in a guesthouse. Actually a lucky move, as shortly after we were in the house, there was a huge storm outside and it looked like the world's end. At least we stayed dry.
In this region, the houses look different again. After the mosaic ornaments in the West and wood carvings in the Theiß valley, the houses now have some kind of mosaic stripes and flowers pictures on them.Read more
