I made my first full day ride in Greece from Polykastro to Katerini, 106km (66mi), with lots of hills, but also a couple of long fast downhill runs with a max of 49.7 km/h (30.0 mph), just a little better than my best in Macedonia the day before 46.5 (28.9). I made 293 km (182 mi) in the last three days and didn’t get to a hotel until 9:00 so I am taking a rest day. I learned with biking from Varna, BG to Istanbul that trying to go hard more than three days in a row was too much. I slept in this morning but made it to breakfast at 8:00 and ate about twice as much as normal. I heard a Romanian family talking and said hello, but they were finishing up and we didn’t chat. After I did my laundry and hung it on the balcony. I took a short ride around town for shopping and lunch. Every thing was dry in about two hours with the heat and low humidity.
Tomorrow I’m planning to bike along the coast for most of the day so I should have lots of pretty views.
