CAKRAZ BARTIN-CIDE (cycling-car)
08.06.2010 - 09.06.2010
After breakfast and nice chat with owner of hotel it was time to start cycling. When we climbed a hill or two we realized, that terrain is much harder than we thought. Basically road leads trough rough hills up and down all the way to Sinop. There is a long climb up and short downhill ride for reward and again the same. Road is quiet with almost no traffic. There is not many people living near road and all you can see are small villages and bays. After long 7 hours of cycling we were out of energy and hungry as wolfs. We cycled down to small bay where little restaurant was placed. After ordering some drink we didnt feel like cycling no more. we were close to town Cide where we want to overnight. We asked the owner if it is possible to drive us there. They were really polite and agreed to take us there after they finish they dinner. They probably noticed how tired and hungry we were and brought us also plates with food. We were very thankful and ate dinner with great pleasure. While eating, we had a chance to see ducks swimming in the sea. Funny thing...
After dinner, owner drove us to the town. We would probably make it somehow, because thee was only one hill left, but nobody was complaining. After finding a suitable hotel it was already getting dark. We were still hungry and went to town for some more food. This was last action for this day and all we wanted was to sleep. Little annoying was the mosque singing at 2 in the morning and waking me up.
We were on bicycle for 7 hour and made only 50km.
