Locombia 2017 Chapter Nine: The Descent
I'm too exhausted to reflect on the climb that two days going downhill will eventually entail.
San Antonio del Tequendama - Girardot 84 kilometers
Yesterday morning any extra pedaling made our pulse run wild. That's what the air at 2,600 meters above sea level does to you.
In two days we have hade some hillarious decents, and we ended today fighting the tropical sun at 300 meters above the sea. Our journey is planned to end back in Bogotá. I don't understand how we will make it. We are too tired to think about it, but right now it feels like a viable option to just settle down here forever.
We've been biking through some beautiful landscape today, out of the heavy traffic. But we are dead tired, mostly from the heat, I hope.
My shoes will be a (bigger) problem at some point.
I have to get better at drinking and eating while on the bike. But I'm never hungry!
