Monday 10th December, Kolar Gold Fields.
Set off this morning with the bike and me equally fragile but we both made it to the end of the day.
Definitely a day of two halves. The morning was flat through small towns and villages. Very pleasant.
Then at the halfway point an ascent of 500m in 3km started as we entered a national park.
I was looking forward to the descent that I had earned but it never came. The next 50km gradually climbed another 500m.
Arrived just as the sun was setting. A tough but great day’s ride.
