lonely-rider-jpg Day 10 – Tour de Laponie 2013: Tirro – Inari

Supershort leg today, just to get back to Inari, where I left to the north just a week ago. The last part of Inarintie was quite flat, so it didn’t require too much effort.

Yesterday, arriving in Karigasniemi, I dropped by the border to ask the Border Guards if they know something about the road to Angeli:

One of the reasons why yesterday I wanted to cycle longer was to have a shorter day today. I’ve been cycling for 8 days in a row and sometimes it’s nice to have some rest. Or at least shorter legs.

Today it was a wonderful day. And not only because the weather has been perfect (warm and sunny in the morning, a bit cloudy and mild in the evening), not only because for the first time during this journey I broke the barrier of 100 km in a day (yes!), but because I found the most beautiful and rewarding route of the whole trip.

Today I’ll start with a picture: this was the weather in the morning. I woke up first time at 7 and noticed it just started again to rain. Rain itself is something you take into account when you do this kind of journeys. But one thing you don’t want is waking up, in your tent, and outside it rains. Because that means you have to pack a wet tent. And you know it won’t dry.
