As Bandung is surrounded by mountains there was no way out but to climb. Luckily I’m very happy about my shape at the moment. When I cycled through Thailand and Malaysia I didn’t feel much improvement – 5 hours of cruising at medium speed on flat roads might burn some fat but doesn’t really improve strength. The mountains of Indonesia, on the other hand, provides some wonderful natural intervals!

My hotel room for the night was much bigger and cleaner that I have been used to for a while. As usual, being in a small and random town without tourists has it’s advantages.
