A strain on adventure cycling.
We put the strain on cycling today. The first 15km (**) easy going on asphalt, followed by a tough challenge (***) for approx. 50km. A great deal of our energy is consumed on climbing and heavy gravel roads, sometimes partially sandy and rocky. Splendid views on the mountaintop: Lake Naivasha on one side and Lake Elementaita on the other. Than carefully downhill and another 15km asphalt for us to recuperate.
Lake Nakuru Flamingo Lodge awaits with a comforting welcome.
