Day 14 was from Mt Romance to Denmark – 76km and 5hrs 18min in the saddle. To avoid jail time I had a deep and meaningful with John, who agreed to hold back his fine form a little and not to egg on Paul into a race.
This resulted in making this ride a little longer, in times, but my legs a lot happier.
The scenery continues to be spectacular!
I have never been to Denmark and it is certainly a beautiful town, with incredible coastline.
We went to the local tavern for a drink and something to eat. Our waitress’s first statement was “are you all from Zimbabwe”, with an Aussie accent! Ashley‘s parents immigrated here when she was three. Her dad was from Harare. Her service was extraordinary and I was reminded of how many ex Zimbabweans there are in this country and around the world.
The food was exceptional too!. I manfully held back on the sticky date pudding after a humongous steak. My family will recall a recent occasion when I had not had any will power. The result was me propped up in bed, like a bloated Whale choking down the heartburn!
My advice fell on deaf ears we shall see how they slept. ( maybe I should have encouraged John further as it may slow the bugger down!)
The last part of The Munda Biddi is in front of us and then a rest day.
