60km from Bahar Dar (tomorrow's stop) on Lake Tana

Good to have had the two rest days off...hope you enjoyed the newsletter....!

117km cycled today......relatively easy...undulating hills, other than two quite big mountain climbs. Got a punctture about 10km from the end, and was watched by 30 locals as I fixed it.... Lots of sticks and rock throwing by the kids today.....all participants complained.

Took it easy, as most of the time we were at 2000m and I could definitely feel the effects of teh altitude on oxygen supply!

Thats all for the blog!
