Day 1724, Biscayne – Orange Walk: Drenched

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Jul - 11 - 2015

Distance: 48.4 km
Ride time: 2:46:17
Average: 17.5 km/h
Max speed: 24.1 km/h
Total: 37365 km

It had been raining all night, so I was very happy that I got the chance to sleep inside at Daniel’s couch and not in my tent. In the morning the rain continued and I was mentally preparing myself for a wet ride.

Normally I would have just stayed put for the day with rain like this, but Daniel was going to work so I had no choice but to hit the road, aiming for the city of Orange Walk some 50 km up the road. My Ortlieb cycling bags are waterproof and I have a rain jacket as well; these things help, but cycling in rain will never be fun. Furthermore the air was filled with thunder and lightning.

Arriving at Orange Walk I checked into the first Chinese run hotel I found. Time to get the fan running to dry out my wet clothes, and then turn on the computer for a few blog updates.
