182km in total, with a pretty steady climb to and then descent from 1,140m.
The temperature after 45km is due to a 1h phone conference for work, for which I took a rest in the sun.
A nice round trip, marred only by a countless number of roadworks. I got most of my rests in front of roadwork stops and coudn’t help wondering whether this was 1945 and Japan was in the phase of reconstruction. If only it wasn’t our tax payers‘ money that wasn’t being wasted like this…
