twotoneams went for a bike ride.
August 27, 2018
woke to the sound of cattle and kids laughing.I was laying surrounded by cow shit and broken glass under a pretty picturesque cement bridge.I continued on to Naryn. Mostly a descent & into the 1st proper city since Bishkek. I got my data to work. Messaged friends, paid bills, messaged the kids and spoke to Kristy. A lot was changing in Amsterdam. It became clear that I’d only have them a week before they were taken from Amsterdam. Damn, I had cried so much this trip. Physically I felt fine but my heart was easily the heaviest thing I carried on my bike.I fell short of my 120km goal by 20km yesterday. And hoped today woulda been 120km too. That meant tomorrow should be 160km or something crazy. Doubts about Cp4 & finishing the race crept in.Ultimately, I didn’t even mess with my tent and slept under my tarp on the side of a mountain.
