It shouldn’t be like this! (But obviously was going to be sometime just hopefully not right at the start). The scenery along the coast and then climbing up into the mountains was great, the sun was shining, so what was it? The wind. And what a wind, reducing my speed to 4-5mph on the flat and even downhill at times. I learnt that locally this stretch is known as “The windy capital of Africa”, I now know why.
More wind forecast tomorrow so I have shortened my planned route.
