Day 10: Nowa Sol – Wroclaw

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Oct - 12 - 2010

Distance: 131.9 km
Ridetime: 6:51:15
Average: 19.0 km/h
Total distance: 869 km

It was indeed another very cold morning. This time several degrees below freezing. Again I was a little surprised I had actually felt so warm at night. Having a good sleeping bag and a good tent certainly pays.

It only took a couple of hours for the temperature to rise to some very nice levels. I even saw people walking around in shorts.

I had opted for some rather small roads going into Wroclaw so I was a bit annoyed to meet a lot of big trucks there. One of them was overtaking me at full speed when only seconds later a police car pulled out of the side of the road and stopped him. Busted!

Through couchsurfing I had arranged to meet with Iwona and Tomek in the evening. I managed to find their very nice apartment in the center of Wroclaw and we had some great hours of talking. Thanks for the Pivo, Tomek!
