Inhumane, I tell you, inhumane! The Black Sea coast of Turkey has the most unrelentingly steep and numerous short uphills of any road I have cycled ever. Over a distance of only 45kms, I had a cumulative total of 1620m vertical metres climbed. I tried in vain to capture the steepness on my camera.
I was tempted to carry on to make it 2,000m, but Amasra was too inviting to miss…
I don’t really have much more to say other than today was tough work.
Pitched the tent on the marina.
