Day 67: Aleppo – Hama

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Dec - 18 - 2010

Distance: 137.14 km
Ridetime: 5:34:14
Average: 24.6 km/h
Total distance: 3651 km

Back into cycling mode! The legs still in excellent shape – the 137 km into Hama wasn’t too much of an effort. On the other hand, traffic was. I was riding on a busy highway all day. While the cars were passing by fast (theoretical speed limit 110 km/h) a nice and broad shoulder made it safe for cycling. The main problem was the thick, black exhausting gasses coming from the old trucks. Not healthy at all.

Arriving in Hama I looked for a cheap hotel and found this kitchen-converted-into-a-sleeping-room. One of the more funny places I have slept. And cheap it was.
