(combined from day 01’s ride)
It’s been a hard 2 days of riding, but i think we are starting to get rhythm.
Left the primo residence of Nick’s Aunty’s place at 5am, bag of left overs in hand.
The morning was interesting.
As we road the 15km to Hua Hin, the morning light started to pierce through the sky, and revealed some bad ass looking clouds in the sky. The big wet season “stay inside or die” type clouds.
Eating our left over dinner outside 711 we decided to throw precaution to the wind and roll on down the road.
Well it rained. And we kept on riding. Yep it was really not the big issue that folks had been warning us of.
It was actually a lot more comfortable than yesterday’s heat & wind.
Nick was worried about picking up a cold being out in the rain but i told him he was a pussy and we kept on riding. As we pedaled on and the rain kept on coming down, and I rethought Nick’s idea about getting sick. I agreed momentarily with him and stopped by to pick up some supplies from the cute girl working the chemist in Kuiburi. Ahhh she was beautiful.
After overpaying for lunch we left Kuiburi for the last few hours to Prachuab Khiri Khun.
Not as much excitement here as was in Kuiburi but we did meet our first slightly imposing hill.
To most riding folks it probably isn’t even considered an incline. But, it was raining, windy, a dog chased me 100m up the hill, and i was pretty tired.
We cruised in Prachuab Khiri Khun – cool little town by the sea – Small, interesting, next to the sea, crap french fries, awesome nam dofu.
Nopporn hotel – 400baht – free wifi, great rooms, clean and friendly
Before my iPhone’s battery died, MotionXGPS’s recording said we rode 130km or so.
I have to say, a good night’s sleep really really helps!
