This is tough but brilliant. After yesterday decided to shorten today’s route to just 26 miles as wind forecast again. Unfortunately there is nowhere to stay on this 50 mile stretch of road. So my cunning plan has been to catch a bus after 26 miles from Smimou to Essaouira where I had a hotel booked. Bike got loaded down below with the luggage. Tomorrow I will have to take a bus back to Smimou to cycle the second half of the route to Essaouira.
Left knee which was reacting to yesterday’s ride rather better today. Last night stayed at Les Tagines Bleus. Moulay and Christian, who run it, couldn’t have been more helpful or delightful.
