Dave Briggs – Cycle Touring Greece Day 20 – Delphi to Zemeno Arachovas

440

Today, I totally underestimated the weather front that had moved into Greece. Hoping to cycle from Delphi to Thebes in one go, I actually had to call the day short at less than 20 kms.
The reason for this, was a powerful double weather front that had moved in. One was a cold weather front that had caused temperatures to drop significantly, and the other was a cyclone. Whilst I was very from from the epicentre of the storms, the strong gusts of wind and relentless rain made cycling impossible.
At least I got to wear my wet weather gear!

Bike Touring Budget

This unforeseen circumstance would have a knock on effect onto the budget, as I had no choice but to wait the storm out for a couple of days in hotels (which you’ll see in future videos). So the lesson on this one, is to make sure your bike touring budget allows for emergencies!

Today’s spend was – 53.5
My average daily spend (20 days) – 34.99
